"Andrew Romanoff is the only candidate in the race who does not accept contributions from special interests," the video description reads. "His opponent is a leading recipient of Wall Street and Big Oil contributions who voted to keep banks Too Big To Fail and to preserve $35billion in tax breaks for big oil instead of investing in renewable energy and paying down the deficit."

Not exactly in the tit-for-tat spirit, Bennet has an ad up of his own, highlighting his struggle with dyslexia, his success in college, and his marriage.
