DENVER – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) announced the launch of a new TV spot in Colorado. “Fingerprint,” featuring stark and unique imagery, is the first of several ads contrasting the evidence of Bob Schaffer’s shameless ties to the oil and gas industry with Mark Udall’s commitment to a clean energy future. “Fingerprint” will run in the Denver media market, while future ads will run throughout the state.
“This ad is only the beginning of our efforts to show the very real differences between Big Oil Bob Schaffer and Mark Udall,” said Tony Massaro, LCV Political Director and Colorado native. “Mark Udall will help our country break its addiction to foreign oil and achieve a clean energy future. Bob Schaffer will help his friends in the oil and gas industry squeeze more money out of Colorado’s families.”
Television ads are part of a fully integrated campaign, which will include phone banks, other paid media, and canvassing. Dozens of canvassers will begin meeting tens of thousands of targeted swing voters in early June.
“LCV knows Colorado and has a record of success in the Rockies,” Massaro continued. “Our organization is committed, and the thousands of LCV members in Colorado will be working day and night to elect Mark Udall to the United States Senate.”
In 2004, LCV spent more than $1.7 million in Colorado. LCV’s efforts were instrumental in electing Ken Salazar to the U.S. Senate and John Salazar to the House of Representatives.
