Today People For the American Way (PFAW) and NextGen Climate released a new Spanish-language TV ad highlighting the stark contrast between GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner’s record of supporting polluters and Democratic candidate Mark Udall’s commitment to protecting the health of Colorado children. The ad will air in Denver and Colorado Springs.

“The difference between these two candidates could not be greater,” said Randy Borntrager, political director of People For the American Way. “Udall is fighting for everyday families while Gardner is pushing a destructive agenda that benefits the few. Access to clean air and clean water is critical in the lives of real Coloradans, including those in the Latino community. We’re making sure voters keep these differences in mind on Election Day, and reminding them how easy and important it is to cast a ballot.”

“Congressman Gardner's polluter-friendly policies threaten the safety and health of the Latino community, and Colorado families across the state,” said Georgie Aguirre-Sacasa, state director of NextGen Climate Colorado. “Latino voters have the power to keep Gardner and his harmful policies out of the Senate.”

Two weeks ago, PFAW and NextGen Climate released a first Spanish-language TV ad challenging Gardner on his record of standing on the side of polluters and wealthy donors.

This ad push is the latest step in People For the American Way’s multi-year, nationwide campaign to engage Latino voters in key states by shedding light on the agendas of GOP candidates on issues ranging from immigration to education to the environment. NextGen Climate Colorado is working on the ground in Colorado’s communities to expose Gardner’s extreme positions on critical issues like climate change, and to empower voters to hold him accountable at the ballot box.

The script of the TV ad reads:

Este es tu poder. Poder, para frenar al republicano Cory Gardner, quien apoya a contaminadores multi-millonarios que envenenan el agua y el aire. Poder para elegir al demócrata Mark Udall, quien lucha para proteger la salud de nuestros hijos.
