Secretary of State Jena Griswold is on a taxpayer-funded spending spree to promote her candidacy ahead of the general election and a Colorado Democratic donor stands to make $310,000 in the process.
According to a report from Axios published yesterday, “Inline Media, a Denver-based firm whose CEO Ilene Nathanson is a donor to Democratic candidates, is poised to make $310,000 from the deal.”
The Axios report also notes that there is an ADDITIONAL $1.1 million in advertising on the way for Griswold.
“The contract with Inline Media to air the most recent commercials includes an additional $1.1 million for digital and print advertising ahead of the general election, a document indicates,” Axios reporter John Frank writes.
Griswold’s current ads have been everywhere on television lately and star “Republican” Wayne Williams.
Williams is currently running for Mayor of Colorado Springs and told the Gazette in an interview that he asked Griswold to stop running ads 30 days prior to ballots dropping.
“Williams has asked Griswold to pull the ads Tuesday, 30 days before ballots go out. He believes Griswold will comply,” the Gazette writes.
Today is Tuesday.
