Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills is about to air his first TV ad of the election cycle.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Kurt Bills is about to air his first TV ad of the election cycle.
A spokesman for the Bills campaign said Wednesday that the 30-second piece is supposed to start airing on Thursday night during the Minnesota Vikings-Tampa Bay Buccaneers game.
Public records show that the Republican's campaign is spending about $120,000 to air the spot on Minnesota stations in late October and early November.
Klobuchar has aired four different TV ads starting in early October.
Polls show her with a wide lead and Bills with continued low name recognition.
In the most recent federal fundraising reports, Bills had about $68,000 left in his campaign account while Klobuchar had nearly $5 million.
