After running ads that touted his bipartisan efforts in Congress for most of the campaign, Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet went on the attack this week against Republican challenger Darryl Glenn.

In a 30-second ad that asks, “What do you really know about Darryl Glenn?” the narrator goes through Glenn’s disbelief of climate change, his anti-abortion stance, and his plan to cut the Department of Education, The Denver Post reported.

The ad comes as polls have tightened in the key race that could determine which party controls the Senate in the next Congress. Bennet’s lead in the polls had been in double digits but the latest RealClearPolitics polling average gives the incumbent a more modest 6-point lead. 

 

Michael Bennet’s recent media buy is nothing but a last ditch effort to appeal to Coloradans as his campaign stalls and mine surges in this final week,” Glenn said in a statement released by his campaign.

 

 

The Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report/Roll Call rates the race as Safe Democrat.

 

The Bennet campaign wouldn’t say how much it would spend on the ad, but it’s expected to run through Election Day, the newspaper reported.
