Rep. Tom Sullivan Gets Big Ups In Bloomberg Ad

Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, presently spending more money than you’ll see in a lifetime every couple of days to brute force his way into contention, has an undeniably powerful new ad running this week featuring state Rep. Tom Sullivan of Centennial. Rep. Sullivan’s loyalty to Bloomberg straightforwardly relates to both mens’ advocacy on gun violence prevention–Sullivan’s signature issue as the father of a victim of the July 2012 Aurora theater shooting.

For Rep. Sullivan, this ad–and more importantly the budget to ensure it airs at a saturation level–pays dividends no matter what happens in the long run with Bloomberg’s presidential campaign. Sullivan is increasingly viewed as one of the better assets in Colorado Democrats’ talent pool for upward mobility, a status that was significantly boosted by the extremely ill-advised attempt by Colorado Republicans to recall Sullivan last summer.

After this ad, more people will know Tom Sullivan’s story than ever before.

    Get it done Mike.  Hope the ad runs in prime time in Colorado for the next month.  I don't care if he is spending big.  It's coming from his piggy bank.

    WAPO has an article claiming the Iowa results triggered Bloomberg's campaign to double its expected ad spending (with no details of what that means in the month before Super Tuesday, or how long it will last).

    Douhat argues that Mayor Gotrocks was one of the few clear winners of the Ioway debacle . . .

    Who Won and Who Lost the Fiasco in Iowa?

    Finally, for Iowa’s non-competitor, the other mayor in the race, the whole night went beautifully: A wounded Biden and a Buttigieg deprived of the full benefits of victory is pretty much all that Bloomberg could have hoped for in his apparent plan to be the last non-Sanders option standing when Super Tuesday rolls around in March.
