Political Consultants, Money Join in Colorado Oil & Gas Ballot Fight

Posted June 4, 2014 at 5:10am

The Denver Post reports that “the battle over the ballot initiatives to give local government more control oil and gas development is, for the moment, gathering paid consultants – with nearly $1 million spent in the last two weeks.”  

“The most recent campaign finance reports, filed June 2 with the Colorado Secretary of State, don’t show much fund-raising, but they do show cash going out to political operatives.”  

“The campaign committees have already raised more about $5 million and now they are beginning to spend it.”
