Coleman Calls On Independent Group To Immediately Stop Its Negative Ad
"The times call for a positive message and vision for our future"
Senator Norm Coleman today called for an independent group that has begun airing a commercial attacking Al Franken to immediately cease and desist.
"While I can only control those ads that I must personally approve, I am calling on this group to immediately pull down this ad," said Senator Coleman. "I want the people of Minnesota to hear the positive record that we've built together, and the vision of a stronger country, with more jobs, energy independence and quality, affordable health care for all Americans. These negative ads must end."
Coleman, who announced last week that he would stop all negative ads and called on other groups to do the same, is not legally allowed to personally contact independent groups and ask them to stop their negative ads. However, he has committed to immediately rejecting such ads if they appear, and appealing to independent groups to focus on his positive vision for the future.
