The new political action committee Voices of Conservative Women has bought $5,700 in radio ads to support GOP legislative candidate Mary Franson.

The three-week ad buy, announced Saturday on conservative talk-show host Sue Jeffers’ KTLK-FM program, will start running Monday in the Alexandria area.

Jennifer DeJournett, VCW director, said it’s the first time in Minnesota history a women’s PAC has made an independent expenditure in support of a legislative candidate.

VCW is also mailing a lit piece in association with the ad and has created a YouTube video.

Franson is running in Republican-leaning District 11B. The district has been represented by conservative DFL Rep. Mary Ellen Otremba of Long Prairie, who is retiring.

Otremba’s seat is viewed as a prime takeover target for the GOP. Another interesting facet to the race is Franson’s connection to the Tea Party.

Franson is running in a three-way race against DFL candidate Amy Hunter and Independence Party candidate Bert Pexsa, whose candidacy was unsuccessfully challenged by a local Republican.

In this year’s election cycle overall, DeJournett said the VCW has exceeded its goal of raising $63,000 and is now aiming to top $75,000.
