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

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.”
