Within the last couple of weeks, the National Republican Congressional Committee released its first Minnesota advertisements of the cycle, launching two robo-calls in the districts of Democrats Tim Walz and Collin Peterson. The two are the NRCC’s top Minnesota targets in 2012.
“Our strategy is simple — tell Minnesota families the truth about Tim Walz and Collin Peterson’s excessive spending sprees that have caused gas prices to skyrocket, diminished retirement savings and destroyed jobs,” NRCC spokeswoman Andrea Bozek said in a statement to MinnPost. “These Minnesota Democrat’s support for Obama’s big-government agenda has stood in the way of job creation and added fear and uncertainty to already-struggling economy.”
The ads are part of a larger six-figure national campaign aimed at congressional Republicans, spokesman Ryan Rudominer said.
