ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republican Rep. Chip Cravaack is showing his family and his role as a father in his first television ad in a nationally targeted northeastern Minnesota race.

Cravaack’s ad began airing Tuesday in the Duluth TV market, featuring images of the first-term incumbent throwing a football with his sons in a leafy backyard. It says, “Washington’s not making it easy.”

Cravaack is seeking a second term after his upset win two years ago. His family moved to New Hampshire last year when his wife took a new job.

The ad doesn’t mention Democrat Rick Nolan, who is emphasizing his Minnesota ties in a TV ad that started airing last week.

National Republicans and Democrats have spent more than $2 million on the race, flooding the TV airwaves with attack ads.
