"Jim has got the game it takes to be successful," says popular, local basketball coach Paul McDonald, who's featured in Oberstar's latest TV ad. "Don't listen to the naysayers in the crowd. Keep Jim Oberstar in the game."
Meanwhile, Cravaack, who's raised less than a quarter of a million dollars and only has $132,000 on hand, is running an ad with a simple message: "Mr. Oberstar has been in Washington almost 50 years but he's voting against us. It's time we make a change."
