The Minnesota DFL has launched an ad campaign that attacks Republican senators over claims of them not passing “real police reform.”

The DFL has started to run ads on Facebook and Instagram that target Senate Republicans over blocking their attempts at changing Minnesota Policing laws. The ads encourage people to demand change from Senators and direct them to the contact info necessary.

“Minnesotans will be watching next week’s special session closely. If Senate Republicans walk away from their jobs without getting anything done yet again, they should not expect to keep them,” said the Minnesota DFL Chair Ken Martin.
