A conservative political group founded by Karl Rove is spending $1.4 million on ads statewide just days before the election.
Crossroads GPS is just the latest outside political group to buy ad time here in waning days of the campaign. It joins Americans for Prosperity, American Future Fund and Restore Our Future in running spots critical of President Barack Obama’s record on spending.
“Actually Debt” will air through Monday, Nov. 5.
Crossroads GPS is a issue advocacy group that, unlike super PACs, does not have to disclose where it’s money is coming from.
This is the first time the group has advertised in Minnesota this election. The ad comes just as Mitt Romney’s campaign announced a last-minute visit by VP candidate Paul Ryan. Though Minnesota has long voted for Democrats for presidents, it appears Republicans are making a last-minute push here.
