Confident Dems Pulls Ads From Colorado Senate Race

The Associated Press reports:

A major Democratic group on Friday pulled its last remaining ads from Colorado’s closely watched U.S. Senate race, a sign that the party thinks its nominee has the crucial race in the bag.

Senate Majority PAC said it will cancel $1.2 million in television ads and spend the money elsewhere as Democrats press a newly expanded Senate map, which Republicans on the run in GOP strongholds such as Alaska and South Carolina.

Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, 68, is challenging Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, 46, in Colorado, a state that has trended sharply to the left since President Donald Trump’s 2016 election. “We believe Gov. Hickenlooper is in good shape heading into the final stretch,” Senate Majority PAC spokeswoman Rachel Irwin said.
