We are six weeks away from Election Day and three weeks from ballots going out in the mail. This means that top-tier campaigns that plan to use television as a significant part of their advertising strategy are hitting the airwaves with gusto.
Click after the jump to see all the latest television ads running in Colorado, nearly all of which are from Democrats (we’re listing ads from campaigns, not dark money or third-party spots). We’re also not ignoring ads for Republican candidates — there just aren’t many of them to even discuss.
If we missed any new ads, please drop them in the comments section…
Incumbent Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet is out with a new spot — his eighth ad thus far — touting his work on bringing solar energy jobs to Colorado. Here’s the ad titled “Stood By Us”:
Hiedi Heidi Ganahl is not on the air, but her campaign did fly a banner over the University of Colorado football game on Saturday! Meanwhile, incumbent Democrat Jared Polis is still running this ad — his second of the cycle — about wildfires and firefighters that went up about a week ago:
I’m honored to have the support of Colorado’s Professional Firefighters for my re-election. Let’s continue our work to improve Colorado’s fire response and defend our communities. pic.twitter.com/vzfHbYvq4l

Polis also has two 15-second spots in the television rotation: “Keep” and “Simple”:
There’s no word yet on TV ads from Republican John Kellner. Democratic incumbent Phil Weiser, meanwhile, launched his first ad last week:
OUR NEW AD ON TV NOW–As Attorney General, I’ve been busy, fighting for the rights of the people of Colorado, supporting more effective law enforcement, and protecting our land, air, and water. Spread the word, and join us at https://t.co/BgSZEnu4Q4. pic.twitter.com/5XEqx82afo

The campaign for Republican Pam Anderson is still dark. Incumbent Democrat Jena Griswold dropped her first spot on Monday:
I don’t just protect your right to vote; I champion it.

We have yet to see any hint of a television spot from Republican Erik Aadland, but Democrat Brittany Pettersen launched her first television ad this week:
I’m so excited to share our first tv ad. Growing up, I couldn’t imagine having a family, a home, and a job I love. But Jeffco schools saved my life. That’s why I work so hard, so the next generation has the same opportunities. In Congress, I can do so much more. #copolitics #CO07 pic.twitter.com/NYVXaYpYaG

Here’s Democrat Yadira Caraveo’s second spot, titled “No Choice At All”:
There’s a stark contrast between me and my opponent, @Kirkmeyer4CO. Kirkmeyer will ban a woman’s right to choose and criminalize doctors. I will fight for every woman across America to have the right to choose. Watch my second ad, “No Choice at All,” now: https://t.co/KrmdZvwEp5 pic.twitter.com/2xdUucNtaj
