I’m told that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee just placed another large advertising buy at the TV stations (in addition to the other buys I reported on). The source said the DSCC is spending another $350 thousand in the market to help Al Franken get elected
I’m told that GOP Sen. Norm Coleman has reserved time at all of the stations to run an unusual two minute ad on Monday night. The ad is scheduled to run at 6:58, right before Prime Time.
