Ellison’s Election Tip Sheet

Ellison Barber election tip sheet

SENATE: COLORADO

Sen. Mark Udall released an ad attacking his opponent for “promoting harsh anti-abortion laws,” and “champion[ing] an eight year crusade to outlaw birth control.”

Jumping to the “war on women” tends to be the Democrats go to when they’re in need of a cheap shot. Udall released this ad on Monday; right as a PPP poll came out showing 47 percent of respondents would vote for Udall in 2014 and 45 percent said they would vote for Gardner.

On Wednesday, Politico reported that a U.S. Chamber of Commerce poll found “Rep. Cory Gardner up by 2 points among likely voters.” Then on Thursday a Quinnipiac poll found the race was virtually tied, with Udall at 45 percent to Gardner’s 44 percent.
