New ad highlights Franken’s work to help Minnesotans refinance student loans
ST. PAUL [10/11/14] — Today, the Franken campaign released a new TV ad that highlights Sen. Franken’s hard work to help lower the cost of college for Minnesotans.
The 30-second statewide ad, titled “All Together,” features Sen. Franken with a Minnesota family talking about his work to help half a million Minnesotans refinance their student loans:“You can refinance your house. You can refinance your car. So why can’t people like Grace and Ryan here refinance their student loans?”
Documentation of the ad can be found here.
AL FRANKEN: You can refinance your house. You can refinance your car. So why can’t people like Grace and Ryan here refinance their student loans? It’s one of those Washington things that make no sense. The average Minnesotan graduates from college $31,000 in debt. So I’m working to pass a law to let people renegotiate their student loans. It’ll help half a million Minnesotans. I’m Al Franken. We’ve gotta help these guys pay off their student loans, so they can worry about this little guy when he goes off to college, and that’s why I approve this message.
