Democrats spending $750,000 on ad attacking Ken Buck’s ethics record
If you can't use appointed Obama Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet's horrible spend and tax record to elect him, blow a reported $750,000 on an unfair attack ad that questions Ken Buck's ethical record.
That's what a secretive left-wing group is doing for Bennet with this ad, which everyone has known was coming. This ad could really hurt Buck because Colorado voters already have dismissed former gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis and Republican gubernatorial candidate because they are both considered by most voters to be ethically challenged.
The fact that the ethics charges were initiated by Democrats who supervised Buck during the Clinton Administration helped him win the primary despite Jane Norton's use of the case against him.
Democrats and independents won't be so kind unless Buck's campaign and the third parties that are throwing millions into his campaign go after Bennet for his record in the senate. Indeed, they're already going after Bennet. That Bennet looks stronger in the latest polls than Buck because he seems to be gaining on Buck and even beats Buck in a couple of polls suggests that Bennet's attack ads are more effective than Buck's. This race will be an election night nail biter.
Republicans can't say Jane Norton didn't warn them.
