DFL congressional candidate Tarryl Clark’s campaign launched its first radio ad of the cycle on Monday.
The ad, titled “Fight,” features a retired steelworker and targets incumbent Rep. Chip Cravaack for supporting Republican budget plans that Democrats say “end Medicare and Social Security as we know it.”
The ad will run for two weeks on just fewer than 10 radio stations in the 8th District, campaign manager Joe Fox said. The campaign has not released the size of the buy.
Democrats in the 8th District endorsed former U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan on Saturday and he’s received the customary support from the state DFL Party. But Clark has a huge fundraising edge on both Nolan and former Duluth city councilor Jeff Anderson as the three compete in an Aug. 14 primary.
