Another barrage of campaign ads is coming to Minnesota, a state all but ignored for months. Crossroads GPS, a pro-Republican outside group, is launching a $1.4 million ad buy in Minnesota. The debt-focused ad above, "Actually Debt," will run in the state through Monday. 

Crossroads joins Restore Our Future, a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, which recently placed a $1.8 million buy in Minnesota. Both buys are part of a new Republican push in Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania -- Democratic-leaning states that remain long-shots for Romney.
