In polling conducted this week by SurveyUSA on the Minnesota gubernatorial election, public relations executive Tom Horner, the nominee of the Independence Party, scored either 9 or 10%. Horner plans to begin running ads, on radio and online.
A press release says the ad buy (including Internet advertising, which will include ads on MinnPost) will cost about $30,000 a week. The ad, which is already available online, starts with a woman reading a faux nursery rhyme:”Mr. Tom Horner sat in a corner, watching the Dems and Repubs
“And thought: ‘With all of this fighting, it’s the people their slighting.
“Can’t they just take off their gloves.'”
It ends with Horner voicing this motto: “Stop arguing about who’s right, and start doing what’s right for Minnesota.”
