Complete Colorado reports that campaign flyers targeting state Senator Laura Woods were mailed to her voters claiming she was out of touch with
California Colorado voters.
The special interest groups also claimed Woods was in the pocket of special interest groups, presumably not the same ones.
“I was born and raised in Colorado. I am shocked when I see rich out-of-staters try to buy the state I love so much,” said Woods, whose district includes the cities of Arvada and Westminster. “It’s just wrong.”
According to Complete Colorado, the money is being funneled through Fairness for Colorado that is funded by Conservation Colorado and is closely tied to Steyer, and America Votes that boasts as one of its members NextGen Climate, which is Steyer’s PAC.
The environmental group (Conservation Colorado) even held an awards dinner in Steyer’s honor last year, where the California billionaire called the 2016 election “critical.” He also warned there is “even more at stake” this year than in 2014, when he poured millions of dollars into a botched effort to save Udall.
He’s right about one thing, there is more at stake this year — control of the legislature, control of the U.S. Senate with Michael Bennet’s election, and the White House.
It’s no wonder Steyer is determined to turn out Colorado Democrats to $wing this state in their favor.
