WASHINGTON - The Republican establishment's favorite political machine is adding Colorado to the list of states where it will be advertising this fall.
Crossroads GPS on Tuesday asked television stations in Colorado to set aside more than $6 million in air time to help Republican Senate contender Cory Gardner, starting in late September. The ad buy takes the totals from the Karl Rove-backed group and its super PAC, American Crossroads, to $26 million after Labor Day.
Crossroads GPS on Tuesday also announced $1.5 million in ads running now in Arkansas, Colorado and Iowa to help Republicans in competitive Senate races. The group also started $1.6 million advertising in two competitive House districts in California.
Crossroads is a favorite for GOP establishment donors and counts George W. Bush adviser Rove among its strategists.
