ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Five Democratic legislators are the targets of a new radio ad campaign by a Republican outside group seeking to pressure them on tax elements of Gov. Mark Dayton’s budget.

The Minnesota Jobs Coalition headed by GOP operatives plans to run the ads in politically mixed districts, where voters elected a Democratic House member but preferred Republican nominee Mitt Romney over Democrat Barack Obama in the presidential race.

Ben Golnik says his group is spending only a few thousand dollars but the ads will run at least six times a day for a week in the targeted markets. The spots focus on Dayton’s plan to expand the sales tax to more things and urge voters to sound off.

The ads mention Democratic Reps. Andrew Falk of Murdock, Paul Marquart of Dilworth, Joe Radinovich of Crosby, Mary Sawatzky of Willmar and John Ward of Baxter.
