The Crowmentum grows.
Congressman Mike Coffman (R-Aurora) appears to have reached the end of his political rope:

The Wall Street Journal confirms that House Speaker Paul Ryan’s Super PAC, Congressional Leadership Fund, is pulling out of CO-6 and will redirect resources elsewhere. Needless to say, this isn’t because Ryan is confident that Coffman will win re-election on his own.
Here’s more from Alex Isenstadt at Politico:
Congressional Leadership Fund, the super PAC aligned with House GOP leadership, is cutting off support for two Republican incumbents, Michigan Rep. Mike Bishop and Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman, according to a person familiar with the group’s plans.
The super PAC will cancel its planned TV advertising for both members, a move that comes as the party refocuses its funds on races that leaders feel confident they can win. The organization had $2.8 million in TV advertising reserved for Coffman and $2.1 million for Bishop…
…Democrats appear especially confident in their prospects of defeating Coffman, a fifth-term political survivor who represents a Denver-area swing district. Earlier this week, the Democratic super PAC House Majority PAC canceled nearly $800,000 in planned TV advertising in the district.
We’ve learned over the years that you can never count Coffman out completely…but it’s looking grim for the Aurora Republican.
