Maureen Hackett, a DFLer running in Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District, started running a radio ad on Air America. The ad is a basic introductory ad detailing Hackett’s profile.
Hackett’s campaign hasn’t gotten back to me to answer questions regarding the size of the ad buy or how long it will run.
Hackett’s spokesman said the ad will run 70 times over the next two weeks at the cost of $674.80.
Hackett is seeking the DFL endorsement against Jim Meffert. The winner will face GOP Rep. Erik Paulsen.
