ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Democratic super PAC and a major union have reserved almost $900,000 worth of Twin Cities TV ad time as they target Republican Reps. Chip Cravaack and John Kline of Minnesota and Rep. Reid Ribble of Wisconsin.

The House Majority political action committee and Service Employees International Union announced the reservation Monday as part of a $20 million push to help Democrats win the House.

House Majority reserved $594,000 and SEIU reserved $295,000 in the Minneapolis-St. Paul market.

Cravaack is a top target after unseating a long-serving Democrat two years ago in northeastern Minnesota. Ribble is another freshman who could face a stiff challenge in a Wisconsin district partially reached by Minneapolis airwaves.

Kline, a five-term incumbent, faces a less conservative electorate in a newly drawn district in the southern Twin Cities.
