Launches Sixth Television Ad
30-second Spot Highlights Emmer's Education Record, Compares it to Dayton's Plan
Saint Paul - Alliance for a Better Minnesota Action Fund (ABMAF) launched its sixth television ad in the gubernatorial race today, featuring an Eagan parent expressing concern about Emmer's record and plans for education in Minnesota. She then talks about Dayton's education plan -- a stark contrast to Emmer's plan of slashing funding for classrooms.
"Doesn't Emmer know that good schools are the key to creating jobs and rebuilding our economy," asks Heidi Schachtman in the ad. "Mark Dayton does. He's fighting to reduce class size, fund all-day Kindergarten and pay teachers what they're worth."
The ad will run statewide on broadcast and cable for 12 days starting today. The cost of the total buy is about $500,000. This is the sixth ad ABMAF has run this election cycle.
