A Republican group reserved $2.6 million in Denver television time for a House incumbent’s wife who is running for Colorado Attorney General.
The Republican Attorneys General Association Colorado PAC reserved the air time from Oct. 7 through Election Day to boost Colorado Chief Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Coffman. She is the wife of Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo., who faces one of the most competitive House races of the cycle.
“RAGA is investing heavily in this race because Colorado voters are rejecting the Obama agenda and making it clear that they want leaders like Cynthia Coffman who will rein in the federal government,” RAGA political director Scott Will said in a statement.
Mike Coffman’s 6th District is in the Denver suburbs — so there’s a chance he might benefit too from the blitz. He faces former state Speaker Andrew Romanoff. Both men are running strong campaigns and are top fundraisers.
The 6th District race is rated Tossup by the Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
