Romney's ads in Minnesota

At least one explanation today of why we see ads all of a sudden: aimed at Wisconsin.

What is scary is that, according to the stib poll, Obama is only 3 points ahead, with the margin of error.

When was the last time Minnesota voted Republican? 1972?

2. Romney has no ground game here. Once it's time to GOTV, Obama will win by 6-10.

3. "When was the last time MN voted Republican? 1972?" Yes. I just read that. Nixon v. McGovern

I read the ads are aimed here too -- ads broadcast in the Twin Cities reach into western Wisconsin so they get a bit of a two-fer. Per: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2012/10/28/talking-points-the-2012-election-will-be-a-toss-up/

In response to tightening polls, Romney did start running ads in the Twin Cities over the weekend but it was a small ad buy that was countered by a small number of ads run by the Obama campaign.

Thankfully these are small ad buys. I am so so sick of the Cravaack ads against Rick Nolan, and I only watch commercial TV on Saturday and Sunday just to catch the news (since there is no PBS Newshour on the weekends).

4. Excruciatingly detailed analysis of the Strib poll (the Ob +3) & other polls (David Brauer Minnpost)

For poll wonks only. I wouldn't know how to begin to summarize it.
