Democrat John Hickenlooper is “in good health,” according to a representative of Senate Majority PAC, who will invest its funds elsewhere.
Democrats believe Cory Gardner is almost done.
Senate Majority PAC, a group affiliated with Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, is withdrawing its final $1.2 million in TV advertisements from Colorado in light of former Democratic Governor John Hickenlooper’s commanding lead over GOP incumbent and first-termer Gardner.
“We’ve been inspired by Gov. Hickenlooper’s campaign for a very long time. We feel Gov. Hickenlooper is in a good position going into the home stretch given his strong fundraising and the several public polls that show him leading by double digits, said Rachel Irwin, a spokesperson for Senate Majority PAC.
The organization has already invested $15 million in the Colorado election to organization defeat Gardner, the former director of the Senate GOP’s campaign committee. Democrats are expected to have the easiest times winning in Colorado and Arizona; they need to gain at least three seats to overturn the Senate Republicans’ 53-seat advantage.
Two Republican super PACs as well as the Senate Leadership Fund, a GOP organization run by Mitch McConnell’s friends, are still running advertisements in the state. According to a representative for the Senate Leadership Fund, the group will keep running political ads.
However, the fight for the majority in the Senate has mainly moved to states like Maine, Iowa, and North Carolina. To win seats in strongly-red states, Senate Majority PAC has launched significant new ad buys in South Carolina, Kansas, and Texas. Democrats have it far harder to win elections in those states than they do in Colorado, where Hickenlooper consistently leads Gardner by a sizable margin.
The Associated Press broke the story of the Senate Majority PAC’s strategic change.
When asked to comment on the choice made by the national Democrats, a Gardner campaign official offered a different view despite Hickenlooper’s lead in the polls and the confidence expressed by Senate Majority PAC.
According to Gardner spokesperson Jerrod Dobkin, “it’s obvious the Democrats also recognize John Hickenlooper has no chance of winning.”
