The Minnesota Republican Party released an ad that features Gov. Tim Pawlenty praising Tom Emmer’s plan for Minnesota. In the ad, Pawlenty ripped Democrat Mark Dayton’s income tax hike and IP candidate Tom Horner’s sales tax to clothing. Pawlenty said in the ad that Emmer is the only candidate to hold the line on tax hikes.
Here’s a link to the ad.
