Minnesotan Gives Senator A Talking-To

The Alliance for a Better Minnesota really doesn't think a "better Minnesota" includes incumbent senator Norm Coleman (R). The group launched a new ad featuring a Minnesotan, Grace Elliott of Brooklyn Center, giving Coleman a talking-to:

"You and I don't need a TV ad to tell us how much the oil companies are squeezing us —
though maybe Norm Coleman does," she says, before blaming him for giving tax breaks to oil companies. "Maybe Norm has spent too much time in Washington."

It's the same kind of ordinary-person-speaking-earnestly-to-the-camera ad that MoveOn.org has used against McCain.
