Two questions in the Romney Ad buy:

Is it really covering Wisconsin?:  Yep.  The Twin Cities are the main TV market for west-central Wisconsin – which is a good source of GOP turnout in ‘Sconnie.

Is Minnesota in play?:  Maybe.  As has been noted, recent polls show Minnesota inside five.  Beyond that? While the latest Star/Tribune poll showed Obama with an eight point lead, it took a D+13 sample to do it.  If you roll those numbers back to even 2008 Democrat turnout levels, the race is within 3-4 points.

The answer?  Maybe…
