A major Republican Super PAC has now decided to throw a considerable amount of its resources in a unlikely place: the Senate race in Colorado between Democrat incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet and GOP challenger Joe O’Dea.
The PAC has reportedly decided to throw an additional one million dollars into the race.
O’Dea is a construction CEO who is running as a self styled centrist, rejecting any associations with former President Trump as well as breaking with his own party over issues like abortion.
In spite of these positions O’Dea currently trails his Democratic rival by approximately 9 points.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell controls the Senate Leadership Fund, which is the Senate Republicans’ main war chest.
In recent days O’Dea has launched several attacks against his Democratic foe over the latter’s handing of issues like crime and inflation.
“I’ve been to all 64 counties. And what people are talking about is inflation,” O’Dea said. “They’re talking about price of gas. They’re talking about groceries at an all-time high.”
“It’s made people really feel unsecure,” O’Dea claimed in a statement to Fox News “They’re worried about their kids. They’re worried about their communities.”
O’Dea went on to add “that Democrats are the ones that have gutted and demoralized our police forces.”
