Liberal advocacy group Alliance for a Better Minnesota has a surprise for Republican delegates gathered at the Mayo Civic Center.
When delegates take a bathroom break, they'll be greeted with ads in the bathroom stalls that, according to a press release, "highlight the backwards priorities of the Minnesota Republican Party."
In a statement, Alliance for a Better Minnesota Executive Director Carrie Lucking said, "It's important to remind residents of Rochester that the Republicans who have come to town do not share their priorities."
One of the ads features the heads of U.S. Senate candidate Mike McFadden and Sen. Julianne Ortman on finger puppets and says, "Choosing between the puppets of Coleman and Palin?" Another goes after the GOP gubernatorial candidates with a name tag that says "Hello, I'm wrong for Minnesota." The third and final ad has a picture of an elephant walking away and says "Conservatives are leaving Minnesota behind."
