Today, Hickenlooper for Colorado released two new TV ads. The first ad, titled “Heart,” showcases John’s record of delivering for Colorado on everything from health care and climate change to reproductive freedom and police reform.
The second ad, titled “Worked,” calls out Washington Republicans’ attacks on reproductive rights and highlights John’s record of expanding access to contraception in Colorado.
“As Governor, we expanded access to affordable health care, took action on climate change and fought for reproductive freedom,” said Hickenlooper. “I’m ready to fight for those same bold policies in the United States Senate.”
