DFL Party Chair Brian Melendez said the DFL Party will start running TV ads in the Twin Cities metro area tomorrow supporting Democrat Mark Dayton. Melendez couldn’t characterize the size of the TV buy but said it would be a positive message regarding Dayton’s plans for schools.
He said the ad won’t criticize Republican Tom Emmer because he believes Dayton is winning the race.
