Energy Issues Focus of New Crossroads GPS TV Issue Ad in Colorado

Spot Urges Senator Mark Udall to Stop the “Energy Squeeze” on Colorado’s Middle Class 

WASHINGTON – Today, Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies (Crossroads GPS) launched an issue advocacy ad spotlighting energy issues affecting Colorado’s economy and urging Senator Mark Udall to support policies that will “stop the squeeze on Colorado’s middle class.”

The new spot, which can be viewed here, will air in Colorado Springs and Denver for a total buy of $460,000 beginning on July 22.

 “Whether it is a carbon tax that would lead to higher electricity prices or the construction of the job-creating Keystone pipeline, it’s important that Coloradans have an opportunity to speak out about America’s energy economy,” said Crossroads GPS communications director Paul Lindsay. “Senator Udall has not always been willing to speak publicly about these issues, but his voting record on energy policy is putting a squeeze on Colorado’s middle class. To stop this squeeze on Colorado’s middle class, this ad urges Senator Udall to support construction of the Keystone Pipeline and S. 2414.”
