It won't be remembered as the best-produced ad of the 2008 election, but it is a painful reminder for Democrats that the once toss-up status of the Minnesota Senate race now appears to be a race that is GOP Sen. Norm Coleman's to lose. Priscilla Lord Faris entered the Democratic race after the Minnesota Democratic Party (DFL) endorsed Al Franken. Franken looked strong in January, but a recent Quinnipiac poll has Coleman enjoying a double digit lead.
MPR reports the Lord Faris campaign intends to spend $100k on the ad and that the Franken campaign will stay "focused on defeating" Coleman.
UPDATE: Franken is up with his own ad today that addresses his nonpayment of out-of-state taxes and blasts Coleman's DC apartment rental agreement.
