Here's the new ad up in Colorado Springs supporting Senate President John Morse, reportedly a $70,000 initial buy giving it solid penetration in that media market:
Dudley Brown's National Association for Gun Rights responds–The Denver Post's Lynn Bartels notes that Brown had originally forsworn spending money on this recall–with their own ad hammering Morse's ties to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Sources tell us the buy for this ad is much smaller, around $30,000:
These are just the first of what's expected to be a saturation onslaught of ads in both Morse's and Sen. Angela's Giron's districts all the way through recall election day, September 10th. We'll post them as we get word of them, and do our best to keep a running tally of spending on both sides.
