$250,000, Two-Week Buy Begins Today In Minneapolis-St. Paul

Washington, D.C. – House Majority PAC announced that it will begin airing an ad targeting freshman Chip Cravaack for having lost touch with Minnesota.

The ad, entitled “Strange,” begins running today in Minneapolis-St. Paul.

“Strange” can be viewed here:

“Chip Cravaack is out of touch, out of step – and out of state,” said Alixandria Lapp, Executive Director of House Majority PAC. “After all, he voted to gut Medicare – forcing seniors to pay $6,400 more a year for health care – all while charging constituents to see him and sticking taxpayers with the bill for his luxury SUV. Minnesota deserves better.”

House Majority PAC recently released polling in MN-08 that demonstrates how vulnerable Chip Cravaack is. In the poll, Democrat Rick Nolan leads Cravaack 47 to 44 percent and moves ahead of Cravaack by seven points after survey respondents were read balanced, positive paragraphs about each candidate.

This is the second ad House Majority PAC has aired in MN-08. The first, “Class,” ran in August 2011.
