Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - this TV ad is being released two months ahead of primary elections, meaning there has yet to be a DFL candidate chosen among the three to face off against the Republican Incumbent, Chip Cravaack, in November.
In the ad, Clark discusses her political agenda, including her opinions on tax breaks for companies who outsource Minnesota jobs.
This ad also comes in light of DFL candidate Rick Nolan's endorsement from the DFL party.
According to Clark, it's a necessary move, after the pro–Cravaack TV ads, paid for by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, began airing weeks ago.
"With the United States Chamber of Commerce running ads for him for weeks, it's important that voters are getting to hear directly from me, so that they know that, indeed, they're going to have someone who's on their side, and fighting for them," said Clark.
"It's no wonder that Tarryl has to be up this early, and spending all this money on Television. She's got to convince people that it was a good idea for her to move here, from St. Cloud, just to run for office," said DFL Candidate, Jeff Anderson.
"Having just moved into the district to run for Congress, and being very behind in the race, she obviously thinks that spending a lot of money on a big media campaign is the way to win the election. And, it's not going to work," said DFL Candidate, Rick Nolan.
Ben Golnik, with the Cravaack for Congress Campaign, said, “While the DFL candidates will continue to try to distinguish themselves in the coming weeks, Chip Cravaack will stay above the fray and remains focused on turning our economy around and creating more jobs for the 8th District. As he has proven in his short time in office, Chip will continue to work with his colleagues on bipartisan, common-sense solutions to the problems facing our nation.”
Primary elections will be held August 14th.
