NORM COLEMAN ANNOUNCES "THE HOPE EXPRESS" TOUR
Will Spend Next 20 Days Outlining Eight Point Plan Get Economy Back On Track And Move Minnesota Forward
Heading into the home stretch of election season, Senator Norm Coleman's campaign today announced that the Senator will spend the next twenty days meeting with Minnesotans in coffee shops and along Main Street to listen to their concerns and share with them his hope for Minnesota. Calling it "The Hope Express" Tour, the Senator will lay out his eight point plan to get the economy back on track and ask them to join him by casting their ballots for him.
"Minnesotans have been deeply impacted by the economic crisis. They've seen their retirement accounts take a hit, they've seen their home values reduced and they are worried about their jobs. Now is not the time for negative, business as usual ads -- now is the time to get down to work. Norm wants this election to be about the future - not about partisan attacks and the blame game. That's why Norm has pulled his negative ads and committed to waging a positive, forward looking campaign for the future of our country," said Cullen Sheehan, campaign manager. "Norm's going to take good ideas from both sides - to stop the fighting and start the fixing. He's done that as Mayor of St. Paul where he worked to create 18,000 new jobs and he's been doing that during his term as Senator. During the next twenty days, Minnesotans from every corner of their state will have an opportunity to hear from their Senator and have the opportunity to join the campaign to get the economy back on track."
