ST. PAUL, MN (AP) - A TV ad attacking Republican Representative Chip  Cravaack starts a fresh wave of televised messages focused on an important race for Congress in northeastern Minnesota.
 
House Majority PAC spokesman Andy Stone said Wednesday the group will spend $250,000 to air the ad starting Thursday for two weeks in the Twin Cities television market. The group is targeting Republicans as it works to give Democrats a House majority.
 
Outside groups are focusing on the 8th District race between Cravaack and Democrat Rick Nolan after Cravaack upset a long-serving Democratic incumbent two years ago.
 
The House Majority ad accuses Cravaack of charging constituents to see him.
 
Cravaack adviser Ben Golnik says Cravaack has ``an unprecedented record of constituent outreach.''
 
Cravaack spoke last year to a business group that charged for a Duluth luncheon. He also held free town hall meetings in Duluth and other cities in the large district.
