Colorado’s 7th (CO - 07)

Updated: September 8, 2022

Overview

This race will be decided with one fundamental question in mind – which candidate has the experience and track record building coalitions that deliver common sense solutions for Colorado families. Voters need to be introduced to Erik Aadland who is an extremist whose dangerous agenda will have serious consequences for Coloradans — layering three mutually-reinforcing hits into one message.

Summary

Voters need to see TV ads on Denver broadcast and cable and OTT/CTV subscribers district-wide and persuadable voters district-wide need to see digitals ads about:

  • Unknown Erik Aadland is a dangerous extremist who spread conspiracy theories that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump and sided with violent insurrectionists like the Proud Boys who attacked the U.S. Capitol. He also supports overturning the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same sex marriage and opposes laws that would bar businesses from denying services to gay couples. Aadland even applauded the overturning of Roe v. Wade and supports letting extremist politicians ban abortions even in the case of rape and incest. These three facts about Aadland are reinforcing and allow voters to conclude that he is not one of us.

Voters need to see TV ads on Denver broadcast and cable and OTT/CTV subscribers district wide and persuadable voters district wide need to see digitals ads about:

  • Erik Aadland is proud to be “deeply pro-life” and applauded the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Aadland even went so far as to say “abortion is a symptom of a psychological sickness” and supports letting extremist politicians ban abortions even in the case of rape, incest, or if the woman is at risk of dying from the pregnancy.
