CLF, AAN Expand Ad Push to $3 Million Across Six Districts

AAN cut two TV ads hitting Cravaack's challenger Rick Nolan, one for the Minneapolis media market and one for Duluth. The Minneapolis ad links Nolan with Obamacare and a bill to restructure Medicare from the 1970s, when Nolan served in Congress. The ad for Duluth links Nolan to the Environmental Protection Agency and says that he wouldn't take the steps necessary to bring jobs back to Northern Minnesota. AAN bought $510,000 of broadcast TV time for the two ads. The group also released ads against Democrats David Gill in Illinois and Jose Hernandez in California. The anti-Gill spot, running in St. Louis, Mo. for $320,000, accuses Gill of supporting the stimulus and "a single-payer health plan more radical than Obamacare." The anti-Hernandez ad, backed by $540,000 in Sacramento, dips into some content unique to the Democratic candidate, including the accusation that he moved to the district to run for Congress. But the bulk of the ad links Hernandez to the stimulus and Obamacare, with the usual highlight on the $716 billion in Medicare reimbursement reductions included in the law.
