In the first television ad from Rep. Mike Coffman, Coffman sets the record straight about his support of women.  Not only does the ad highlight his work in the Colorado state legislature to prohibit health insurers from gender discrimination in pricing for which the Colorado Women’s Lobby honored him, but he also talks about his support for sexual assault reform in the military and for the Violence Against Women Act.  In his press release, Coffman says that he is particularly proud of the bipartisan work that led to the sexual assault reform in the military.  From the press release:

“I am proud that Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier and I were able to pass legislation strengthening protections for victims of sexual assault in the military.  We must never let the young men and women who risk their lives defending our country fear retaliation for coming forward against their assailants.”

From the ad:

Voice Over: “Disturbing reports of sexual assault in the military. A marine, Mike Coffman, took action, passing a bipartisan bill with stronger protections for victims. It’s not the first time.  Coffman made Colorado a leader in ending gender discrimination, preventing insurance companies from charging women more than men. And, Coffman bucked his own party to help pass the violence against women act.”

Woman: “It’s nice to know someone has our back, that’s Mike Coffman.”
