Political groups have used billboards, newspapers, TV and radio to launch ad campaigns attacking and defending politicians this year.
Now Democrats are trying to get their message to voters at the pump.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has purchased ads attacking U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen that are appearing in gas stations in the Third District.
The ad doesn't hit Paulsen for gas prices — a line the GOP has used against President Obama recently — but it knocks him for his record on Medicare and “tax breaks for millionaires.” The gas ads are part of a national campaign in more than three dozen districts.
One Minnesota Republican not on the DCCC's list this time: freshman U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack, who has the most frequent Minnesota GOP target of Democrats in 2011.
Amid reports that Donald Trump was in danger of not getting on Minnesota's presidential ballot, the Trump campaign says everything is in order and voters will have a chance to cast their ballot for him in November.
Interest groups spent less slightly money lobbying state government in 2015 than in the previous year, according to a report released Wednesday by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board.
Hillary Clinton said Thursday that Donald Trump has unleashed the "radical fringe" within the Republican Party, including anti-Semites and white supremacists, dubbing the billionaire businessman's campaign as one that will "make America hate again."
