In New Ad, First-time Candidate Jason Crow Takes On A Broken Washington
Crow Rejects Corporate PAC $ to Put Coloradans First
Aurora, CO – Former Army Ranger and first-time candidate Jason Crow released his fifth television ad of the general election today, taking on a broken Washington that rewards corporate special interests over working Coloradans. Crow is one of the first House candidates in the country to reject corporate PAC money, building a strong grassroots campaign to bring servant leadership to Congress.
In the ad, “Listening,” Crow discusses the concerns he hears from families in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District — and his commitment to reforming the political system to ensure Coloradans have a voice in Congress. Since beginning his campaign, Crow has hosted or attended over 300 community events to discuss issues ranging from the gun violence epidemic, better wages and jobs, and rising healthcare costs.

“Our political system is broken for most hard-working families,” Crow says in the ad. “So I’ve decided to do something about it – to lead by example.”
Crow is running in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District to unseat career politician Rep. Mike Coffman. His refusal to take any campaign dollars from corporate PACs is a far departure from Coffman, who has received nearly $2 million from corporate PACs in his career, while voting with President Trump 96% of the time.
When I listen to families in this community, they’re concerned about education and health care, gun violence and jobs.
One thing is very clear: our political system is broken for most hard-working families.
That’s why I’ve taken a pledge not to take any corporate PAC money.
Because our elected officials are listening to their corporate donors. They’re not listening to families.
So I’ve decided to do something about it – to lead by example.
