WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Democrats' campaign arm is spending $1 million on television ads criticizing the GOP nominee's opposition to abortion rights.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Thursday ordered a two-week ad buy that hammers Republican congressman Cory Gardner. The narrator in the 30-second ad says Gardner backed three amendments that would have banned all abortions.

Gardner supported changes to Colorado's state constitution that would have banned stem cell research, some birth control and abortion. Gardner has since changed his position on the so-called personhood measure, and says now he opposes it.

The ad also criticizes Gardner for backing a House bill that would ban abortions for victims of rape or incest.

Female voters in the ad react by saying Gardner is too extreme.

Gardner is running against Democratic Sen. Mark Udall.
