Last month, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, head of the Republican Governors Association, visited Colorado to throw his support behind GOP candidate Bob Beauprez.

Now, the RGA is putting up the money to back Christie’s promise.  They released the first of several ads attacking Gov. John Hickenlooper, yesterday, and it signals what will likely be a very large investment in Colorado.

There are already 30 Republican governors, and Colorado is actually one of the very few pick-up opportunities for the RGA this cycle.  Having raised a formidable $100 million, they have a lot of money to play with.  That should have Hickenlooper very, very nervous, especially considering he’s never been the target of massive outside spending before.
