​As reported by the AP via ABC News:

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Thursday began reserving advertising time with television stations across the country. Where and when the House Democrats' campaign arm is looking to spend money…

—$1.4 million on Denver broadcast and cable ads from Oct. 21 to Nov. 4 to challenge Rep. Mike Coffman, a Republican.

Different media markets have different cost factors, but in absolute terms, only a few races are seeing more investment from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC)–races in pricey markets like New York and Philadephia, and a particularly tight freshman protect effort in Phoenix. Once you account for the difference in ad rates for these markets, clearly no practical expense is being spared in the drive to unseat Rep. Mike Coffman. Spending by the DCCC and like entities on the other side is a reliable indicator of where strategists believe their best chances lie.

It's just another confirmation of what our readers already know–CD-6 is the marquee congressional race in Colorado this year.

    Let me help Moddy today. So repubs spend money = bad, dems spend money = good.

    There are only 5 House seats that are toss-ups currently held by Republicans compared to the 13 currently held by Dems.  Dems are going to lose seats, so they might spend some money on the handful of seats where they have a shot.

    "Oct. 21 to Nov. 4"
    Do these idiots not understand the concept of vote by mail?

    • DavieDavie says:

      My thought exactly.  But then again, the undecideds probably won't vote early, so maybe this isn't such a waste afterall.

        I'm sure it isn't.  It's finishing big, end game shot in the arm money. Particularly well spent to get out more of the kind of Dem leaning young voters who don't send in that ballot as soon as they get it like Grandma and Grandpa often do or demos in which many prefer to vote at an early polling place (often at the last minute) or on election day. Money spent to motivate more potential voters in a midterm to actually get off their butts and vote at all is well spent and, for certain Dem vote rich target groups, probably best spent late. Dem candidates need strong finishes.
