When you first visit Norm Coleman’s campaign website it doesn’t say a word about the Republican incumbent. Instead, it features the latest ad questioning Franken’s temperment. You have to click on one of the entries to actually find out where Coleman stands on the issues. Coleman’s own name isn’t even on the front page.
UPDATE: A Coleman staffer just called to say Coleman’s name is on the page twice (he’s citing colemanforsenate.com not Norm Coleman). He added that the page is “temporary.”
