Dem strategist condemns Romanoff ad as ‘scorched earth’ tactic

The Romanoff campaign launched a new controversial TV ad Tuesday taking a hard swing at Democratic primary opponent Sen. Michael Bennet, accusing him of representing the interests of his finance and energy industry donors. The ad marks the latest salvo in a contest that is becoming hotter by the day and turning ugly just as mail-in primary ballots are reaching voters around the state. Although Romanoff defended the ad as focused on policy, Democratic political consultant Mike Stratton joined with the Bennet camp in lamenting it as attack politics. He said the ad traded on distortions and represented a "scorched earth" strategy that would hurt Democrats in the end.
