With money to spend, Minnesota's U.S. Senate candidates spend it on mud - TwinCities.com:

"'It's getting ridiculous,' said Millie Kohlrusch, 59, of Coon Rapids. Taking a break from selling pull-tabs at a bar in Blaine, Kohlrusch said she's tired of being inundated with negative ads.
'Right now, they're just making fun of each other,' said the Democrat, who is unsure of her choice in the Senate race. 'There's so much negativity. I'm tired of it. I want to hear them debate.'
A recent poll from Rasmussen Reports, an independent pollster out of New Jersey, found that 44 percent of voters in Minnesota said the Senate race had become too negative. But another 56 percent said they either don't know or don't believe this year's Senate race has become too negative. The poll also found that 58 percent of voters in Minnesota say they are less likely to vote for a candidate who produced a negative campaign ad."
