ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A political fund targeting Republicans is going after GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack with $120,000 of TV and online ads in northeastern Minnesota.

A Washington-based super PAC called Friends of Democracy announced the ad purchase Thursday as part of a push against four Republican House members. The TV ad portrays the Republicans as beholden to corporations.

Cravaack is a top Democratic target this year as he seeks re-election in a district that had long been represented by Democrats.

He will face the winner of Tuesday’s primary between Democrats Jeff Anderson, Tarryl Clark and Rick Nolan.
