Independence Party candiate Dean Barkley may not feel so lonely any more. GOP Sen. Norm Coleman criticized him in the last debate. And now the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee released this ad that rips both Coleman and Barkley.
The DSCC must be seeing the same polling that shows that support for Barkley is soft (meaning those voters could change their minds before election day).
