There are many donors funding the Club for Growth's recent ad against Democratic Colorado Senate candidate Mark Udall. But most of them have at least one thing in common: they're not from Colorado.
Of 19 donors contributing $517,000 for the ad, only two donors (representing a grand total of $10,000) come from Colorado, according to new filings by the Club.
The biggest donors are John Templeton of Bryn Mawr, PA. ($200,000); John Bryan of Lake Oswego, OR ($100,000); Jerry Hayden of Barrington, IL ($100,000); and Craig Johnson of Indianapolis, IN ($50,000).
Templeton has also helped bankroll the conservative group Let Freedom Ring and recently gave $100,000 to the Republican State Leadership Committee. Bryan is a reliable donor to Club For Growth. Hayden gave $10,000 last year to Newt Gingrich's 527, American Solutions for Winning the Future.
