Mark Dayton for Governor TV ads coming next week

We’ve been seeing Matt Entenza for governor ads on television since early May — he’s on his third different commercial now and has spent a reported $850,000 on them — and now fellow DFL candidate Mark Dayton is ready to unveil his TV campaign.

The ads will start running next week, the campaign says. We know some of it was shot on a farm north of Cambridge.

MPR reports that Dayton bought $350,000 worth of ad time in the Twin Cities market through June.

Still no word on when the DFL’s endorsed candidate, Margaret Anderson Kelliher, will fire up a television blitz.

All three are drumming up support in anticipation of the Aug. 10 primary.

    Mark Dayton’s Pledge to:
    Tax his land and tax his ways
    Tax the bed in which he lays
    Tax his horse and tax his mule
    Teach him taxes is the rule
    Tax him ’til he’s good and sore
    If he hollers tax him more
    And write these words upon his tomb
    Taxes drove me to my doom
    And when he’s gone we won’t relax
    We’ll come after the inheritance tax
