Closing TV ad salvo begins in MN-8 DFL primary

The closing ads are rolling out in the hotly contested MN-8 DFL primary campaign. Endorsed candidate Rick Nolan put out his campaign’s first ad this week, following one put out by the DFL on his behalf.

Nolan’s ad is a distillation of a fiery speech Nolan gave to the State DFL Convention last spring. It also touts the endorsements he’s earned from U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken, along with Gov. Mark Dayton and former Rep. Jim Oberstar.

Last week, Tarryl Clark made news when she announced her endorsement by former President Bill Clinton. Her closing ad features Clinton and touts the United Steelworkers endorsement she won early in this cycle.

I expect a Jeff Anderson ad to go up next week. More on that when it happens.

The primary is Tuesday, Aug. 14. Anderson, Clark and Nolan are vying for the DFL nomination to face freshman incumbent U.S. Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN8) in one of the nation’s most closely-contested congressional races.
