As the campaign draws closer, folks will be using their creativity to attract attention. Two members of MPR’s staff took some photos that should entertain. If you see anything creative, get a lit piece or a fundraising alert send them my way (firstname.lastname@example.org). We may very well put the stuff on the blog.
Minnesota Public Radio producer Jim Bickal took this picture on Snelling Ave. in St. Paul. It was across the street from Macalester College. He said the sign lights up at night.
MPR Reporter Tom Weber took this photo on Hwy. 169 near Princeton. GOP Rep. Sondra Erickson appears to be taking the “Drill, Baby, Drill” mantra to a whole new level.
