Great news for Norm Coleman.

Great news for Norm Coleman. Until now, a torrent of money flowing into Minnesota from liberal special-interest groups has given Paul Wellstone a clear edge in media presence. But a group called Americans for Job Security has reportedly made a $1 million radio and television buy on Coleman’s behalf. If true, this would give Coleman the greater media presence through the last two weeks of the campaign. The Democrats have tried to make an issue of the fact that Americans for Job Security–like many of the liberal groups that support Wellstone–does not release the names of its donors. The Minneapolis Star Tribune joined with the Democrats by terming Americans for Job Security a “mysterious group” in its headline. But Wellstone has made no complaint about the content of the ads. The text of the current radio ad, which criticizes Wellstone’s support for the estate tax, is here.
