Santorum SuperPAC to air ads in Minnesota

A SuperPAC backing Rick Santorum's presidential campaign will begin airing a 30-second ad in Minnesota tying rivals Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney to President Barack Obama.

The Right, White and Blue Fund purchased $133,000 of air time to run the ad, the group's first negative spot, according to the Washington Post. The group also made a $61,000 ad buy in Missouri.

The Minnesota ad features a 10-second shot of Romney and Gingrich superimposed behind Obama. A narrator ominously warns, "they're not so different," before the focus shifts to Santorum's conservative chops.

The Minnesota caucuses are on Tuesday.
