“Don’t thank me for my service, do something real.”
Expected to air on local television stations and online, the 30-second spot calls former state Sen. Morgan Carroll a “sleazy” personal injury lawyer and accuses the Aurora Democrat of crafting legislation to help the law firms where she once worked
The ad highlights a notorious clip of Trump imitating and mocking New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, who is disabled. Carroll’s campaign ad then shifts right to Coffman, who Carroll says tacitly approves of Trump’s antics because he hasn’t outright denounced his remarks and his candidacy
The ad will air on broadcast television and is part of a planned $1.4 million between now and election day, according to the Carroll for Colorado Campaign
We believe that the public deserves an open and honest forum to discuss the challenges facing Colorado and our country,”Carroll for Colorado spokesman Drew Godinich said in a statement. “People deserve to know why Mike Coffman and the current Republican-led Congress has failed to address the needs of the people in our community.”
“Hillary Clinton is winning women voters, including white women voters much more than normal,” Political analyst Floyd Ciruli said. “Partially it’s a reflection of a woman running for president, but more, it’s a reflection of Trump’s problems.”
“People ask me, ‘What do you think about Trump?’” Coffman says in the ad. “Honestly, I don’t care for him much — and I certainly don’t trust Hillary.”
“For months I have made it clear when, where, and how I disagree with Donald Trump,” Coffman said in his statement. “He has no apparent plan to balance the budget, his immigration policy is cruel and absurd, and his divisive campaign is further dividing America.
“I think the public in general is pretty cynical and recognizes that all sides take money from people who want something,” Ciruli said.
