GOP ads hit gas pumps – literally

State Republicans’ anti-DFL ads will hit the tiny video screens of gas pumps soon, according to MPR.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty has long predicted an anti-tax revolt will sweep away the DFL’s election chances, and state Republicans are taking it directly to the gas pumps, MPR reports.

The GOP is buying 15-second ads on those tiny screens you watch as your wallet’s being emptied by sheiks, oil execs and gas-tax-craving DFLers.

The ads may only raise some people’s blood pressure — but you have to admit, the medium doesn’t get much more targeted than this.
