TRUTH TEST: Paulsen, Walz air ads mid-term
The next Congressional elections are nearly two years away, but an advertisement for Republican Rep. Erik Paulsen and Democratic Rep. Tim Walz are already in cycle on Twin Cities television airwaves.
In these politically-charged times, Minnesotans are likely to see more political ads every year as special interests use advertising to influence Washington lawmakers after they’re elected.
We put the tests through 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS’ Truth Test.
We'll see how eager First District Republicans will be to slam Walz's for this vote. Will they side with the vote by Davis's BFF Bachmann and bash fellow Republican Paulsen? Or will some sanity take hold?
