Alliance for a Better Minnesota, a labor and DFL supported group, hasn't been kind to Republican Tom Emmer in its ads.
And sources say the group has a new television ad coming out next week that will be even tougher. One source described the coming ad as "bruising."
ABM won't be alone in unveiling a new ad soon. DFL Mark Dayton will also have new television ad out next week and the other DFL contenders in the Aug. 10 primary -- Matt Entenza and Margaret Anderson Kelliher -- likely won't be far behind.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
