Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer released his first TV ad today. The ad features his family talking about job creation. It’s not a surprise since most polling shows that’s the number one issue on the minds of voters is jobs and economy.

Emmer’s campaign manager, Cullen Sheehan, says the campaign is spending $300,000 on the ad buy, which will run through early September. He also says the ad will run on broadcast and cable.
