Sen. Norm Coleman said he will pull his negative advertising in the race against Democrat Al Franken and Independence Party candidate Dean Barkley.


He promised to keep his negative commercials off the air for the rest of the campaign. His announcement does not affect outside groups that are buying broadcast time.

Coleman told reporters that Minnesotans are worried about the troubled economy and that negative political ads only fuel their concerns.
