We’re pretty sure this, like Treasurer Cary Kennedy’s groundbreaking use of TV in 2006, marks a first for the Colorado Attorney General’s race–there were no TV ads run in 2006 between incumbent John Suthers and his Democratic opponent Fern O’Brien. Release follows–says Stan Garnett, “I’m extremely proud of the support that I have received from individuals across Colorado, and deeply appreciative of their response to my candidacy.”
Suthers’ fundraising has been markedly lackluster so far, and his autopilot campaign is going to need to get serious to this new reality–Garnett is no Fern O’Brien.
For Our Attorney General

Garnett Campaign Makes Initial Media Buy
JUNE 23 – Attorney General candidate Stan Garnett today announced that his campaign has made its first purchase of air time to help spread his message to voters during the critical closing weeks of the campaign.
The initial purchase by the Garnett campaign is a $100,000-buy. Garnett said it was made possible by the generous donations, both big and small, that he has been receiving from throughout the state since entering the race for Attorney General.
“I’m extremely proud of the support that I have received from individuals across Colorado, and deeply appreciative of their response to my candidacy,” said Garnett. “It’s very exciting that we’re able to take this important step at this early stage in my campaign.”
Garnett added, “As I carry on my bid to become the peoples’ lawyer, I will continue to listen and learn about the issues impacting the daily lives of hard-working Colorado families.”
