This ad shows an apparent determination by Team Bennet to go on offense. After his win in the Democratic primary against former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, Bennet campaign manager Craig Hughes indicated that they would run a strong race. "I think what you saw in the primary is we responded when attacked," Hughes said. "You can expect a pretty aggressive campaign for us." And this ad does quite a bit more than that, by going after Buck instead of simply responding defensively.

The TPM Poll Average gives Buck a lead of 46.4%-42.4%.
