Americans for Prosperity ads target Colorado Senator Mark Udall on ObamaCare

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Billionaire brothers behind nationwide attacks on Democrats are turning their attention to Colorado, where incumbent Sen. Mark Udall is seen as vulnerable.

In a statement Monday, a group known as Americans for Prosperity announced a new TV ad campaign linking Udall to health insurance reform. The group called it part of a nationwide effort against Obamacare.

"Senator Udall needs to get out of Washington, DC long enough to see that ObamaCare is truly harming real Coloradans, instead of continuing to double down on this disastrous policy," said Dustin Zvonek, Colorado state director of Americans for Prosperity, in an email sent to 7NEWS.

Udall's office responded with a statement accusing Kansas-based Charles and David Koch, who have a chemical and textile empire and helped found Americans for Prosperity, of pouring $970,000 in "tainted money" into the Colorado race.

"Help me send the Koch brothers and their mega-million, special interest friends a clear message," Udall said in an email to supporters.

If they can gain six seats in the November midterm elections, Republicans will control the Senate. In Colorado, Rep. Cory Gardner is seen as the chief challenger to Udall among several politicians vying for the Republican nomination.
