Polis Drops $3M in Ads for CO-Gov. Race; Trying to Buy Election?

Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) – the Democratic nominee for governor of Colorado – dropped $3 million on television ads this week for the fall. It’s a big buy for Polis, who’s put more than $12 million in his campaign so far, according to The Colorado Springs Gazette.

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Jared Polis just showed the perks of being rich. The self-funding tech millionaire Wednesday announced his first jaw-dropping television ad buy: $3 million for October.

…Polis has put in more than $12.4 million so far, compared to about $2.5 million raised by his Republican opponent, Walker Stapleton.

The ad buy will open Polis up to accusations of trying to buy the election. Indeed, Republicans are accusing Polis of just that.

Republicans have accused Polis of trying to buy the governor’s race with his personal fortune.

Polis has struggled in the first few weeks of the general election, particularly over his decision to skip the Club 20 debate in the Western Slope. Westword called the Club 20 debate “an institution for gubernatorial debates” in the state.
