Is this the Best TV Ad in Colorado in 2014?

Trying to find news about the Colorado Secretary of State race has been harder than trying to locate State Treasurer Walker Stapleton. Even though the SOS race is one of the few open-seat battles in Colorado, it hasn't garnered much attention with the gajillions of dollars being spent on races for U.S. Senate, Governor, and in CO-6.

Democrat Joe Neguse has run a record-setting campaign for SOS against the barely-awake Republican Wayne Williams. But like so many downballot races in the past, it's difficult to control your own destiny when voters are blasted with ads from top-ticket candidates.

Win or lose, however, Neguse may very well be responsible for the single most compelling TV ad in the 2014 cycle. If you haven't seen it, here it is below.

If you can think of a better Colorado ad that you've seen, let us know in the comments section.

    It's a thing of beauty: genuine, heartfelt, earnest, easy to understand and embrace.

    This is the type of political ad we might have been seeing more often, if not for the corrupt right-wing SCOTUS, and the fascistic dark-money oligarchs they've unleashed on the body politic like a metastatic cancer.

    I can't wait to see how Thingy-1 and Thingy-2 try to find fault in that ad.

    Don't you see? He's politicizing elections by running as a democrat. Its unfair! And he might help them vote!!!!!

    Charming, absolutely charming.  And, it's smart.

    You just want to invite him over for dinner. Is he single? I can think of a few nice young single women I'd like to introduce him to.

    Joe Neguse is a class act, and would make a phenomenal secretary of state.  Hopefully he wins.

    Joe Neguse really is that charming and authentic in person. What you see is what you get.  Imagine a Secretary of State who wants more people to vote, wants elections to be more efficient, and the public to have access to financial records, and doesn't waste hours and dollars finding ways to block access to the vote.
