An ad campaign backed by nearly a half million dollars from pro-choice group NARAL claims Republican Senate candidate Rep. Cory Gardner will make it impossible to buy condoms.
The ads, which furthers attacks from Democrats saying Gardner would outlaw access to some forms of contraceptive citing previous support for personhood bills, will run online, on TV, and on radio in the Denver area. Gardner has backed over-the-counter access to contraceptives this year.
Gardner says he has no plans to ban contraceptives, which the ad states.
"So everyone is sold out of condoms," a woman in the radio ad says. "How did this happen?
"Cory Gardner banned birth control, and now, it's all on us guys," says a man in the ad. "And you can't find a condom anywhere. And the pill was just the start. Pell grants my little brother was counting on for college? Cory cut them. Climate change that everyone knows is weirding our weather, Cory flat-out denies it. Sweet pea, Cory denies science."
