WASHINGTON — Sen. Al Franken is up with his second ad buy of the 2014 cycle.
The new, minute-long ad features a Ham Lake woman sickened by a tainted vaccine in a 2012 meningitis outbreak that killed 64 people nationwide. Franken was part of a group of senators to introduce a bill beefing up drug manufacturer regulations in response.
The bill was wrapped into a larger package, which President Obama signed into law last year. (Republicans have needled Franken for highlighting a stalled bill in his first ad, which he released earlier this month.)
Here’s a link to the ad.
