Conservationists Dismiss Complaints From Anti-Measure 5 People In Their Ads

Yesterday while guest hosting the Jay Thomas Show on WDAY AM970 in Fargo I interviewed Sara Otte Coleman from the North Dakota Tourism Department about those Measure 5 ads featuring people who don’t support Measure 5.

Men In Television Ads Say They Were Exploited By Measure 5 Supporters
