Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s campaign is running a radio ad ripping DFLers on the transportation bill and other tax increases. The ad fails to mention the eight Republicans who supported the transportation bill.
The ad is also being used a fundraising tool on Pawlenty’s campaign website. The website also urges supporters to contact their legislators, write a letter to the editor and e-mail the ad to others.
