State Senate candidate yanks ad; Mt. McKinley no Pikes Peak

DENVER ” Mount McKinley is no Pikes Peak, at least in Colorado political circles.

U.S. Senate candidate Bob Schaffer pulled his first television campaign ad after learning that it featured Alaska’s Mount McKinley, also known as Denali.

The ad was set to debut Wednesday in Colorado Springs and Grand Junction.

Schaffer campaign spokesman Dick Wadhams said his staff was assured by a media consulting firm, DMM Media of Washington, D.C., that a photo used in the ad was a stock Colorado Rocky Mountains photo.
