Here’s the latest news out of Minnesota:
Smith leads among female voters by 17 points, 47% to 30%. That's more than enough to overcome the 44% to 41% lead Lewis has among male voters. The Smith campaign is running TV ads highlighting controversial things Lewis has said about women during his talk radio career.
“I think it's an effective strategy for the Tina Smith campaign to raise concerns about some of the statements Jason Lewis made in talk radio about women in order to prevent him from making gains with women,” Schier said.
Lewis counters with ads questioning whether Smith supports police or the “defund the police” movement. However, Smith has more money to spend on ads having outraised Lewis by a five-to-one margin, $10 million to $2.5 million.
