Campaign ad hits theater
TWIN CITIES, MN — Much to the audience’s surprise, a candidate for county sheriff started running a campaign ad in one theater.
Going to the movies is the ultimate form of escapism — or at least it was until Friday.
That was when the curtain came up before the 7:30 showing of “The Illusionist” at the Highland Theater, and where there materialized a leading man so familiar to the St. Paul audience that some in the theater gasped at his sudden appearance on the silver screen.
It was former Police Chief Bill Finney. Seems he’s running for Ramsey County sheriff.
