GOP ads begin

Minnesota Republicans have begun their television pre-election attacks on Democrats.

A commercial called "Stop DFL" is critical of a $6.6 billion transportation funding bill.

"In 2006, Democrats promised Minnesotans that they would govern as 'fiscal moderates,'" GOP Chairman Ron Carey said. "But today all of Minnesota knows those were just empty words. By raising the gas tax, the metro wide sales tax and license tab fees by $6.6 billion, Democrats have broken their word and Minnesotans are taking notice."

Besides being broadcast, the commercial will be spread on the Internet.
