Michael Bennet’s Lack of Faith
The Democrats really are running an inconsistent campaign across the country. In Missouri they are running an attack on a Republican saying he covered up pedophilia in the Catholic Church. In Minnesota the Democrats are attacking Catholics full on for not living up to Christ’s teaching to help the poor. In Kentucky they are attacking Rand Paul for blaspheming Christ or some such nonsense. In | Read More »
Colorado Should Not Be Too Close To Call
Colorado should not be too close to call right now. But it is. Unions and Colorado’s well organized left-wing interest groups are pour tons of money and resources into Colorado to protect Michael Bennet and reward him for his Obamacare vote. Here’s Ken Buck’s website. It is important that we all do what we can for Ken Buck.
Why Is Dan Maes Allowed To Debate?
A new poll out in Colorado shows Dan Maes getting only 5% of the vote. Why is he allowed on stage to debate Hickenlooper and Tancredo? Just because he is a Republican? If the guy were a Libertarian, a Greenie, a Reform Party guy, etc. he would be seen as illegitimate with 5% in the polls. Why is CBS4 giving him a platform when he | Read More »
Rape and Ken Buck’s Record
The left never ceases to amaze me in their willingness to use people to tar and feather their opposition through half-truths and lies. In much the same way the NAACP used the murder of James Byrd to attack George Bush with a series of lies, the left is doing the same with a rape victim in Colorado against Ken Buck. The Colorado Springs Gazette covers | Read More »
I Endorse Tom Tancredo for Governor of Colorado
If you have not read Nightwister’s post you need to. If the Republicans in Colorado get less than ten percent of the vote in the gubernatorial race, the Colorado GOP will lose its privileged position in Colorado as a major party — a designation that gives it automatic ballot access. This will tremendously impact down ballot races in Colorado long term. At a time when | Read More »
John Salazar Votes With Nancy Pelosi 97% of the Time. He Says He Never Does.
With a hat tip to Jim Geraghty we can see just how bad it is for Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats right now. John Salazar, Congressman from Colorado, is being attacked for voting 97% of the time with Nancy Pelosi. NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT. His Republican challenger, Scott Tipton, is tied with Salazar in a race that two years ago Mr. Salazar walked away with. So how | Read More »
The Nightmaes in Colorado Remain
Yet another day the long Colorado nightmaes of Dan Maes continues. I think I’m just going to keep beating this like a dead horse every day. Yes, the time for Maes to go and have the ballot changed has passed. But as long as Maes remains active, some voters will stick with him and not go to Tancredo who has a much better shot. There | Read More »
It is Time for Dan Maes to Go
It is always a tough thing for candidates to do, but sometimes it is necessary. Dan Maes is running a terrible campaign terribly underfunded in Colorado. He has the establishment Republicans and most of the grassroots doing something no one thought was possible — rallying to Tom Tancredo. The latest polling in Colorado has Maes at 15%, behind Tancredo and Hickenlooper, the Democrat. Maes cannot | Read More »
‘It’s Of No Interest to Me’
Ken Buck and Michael Bennet had a debate the other day. Ken Buck posed a simple question to Bennet: Did you vote for $1.5 million for an airport named after Jack Murtha that serves no more than 20 passengers a day? Bennet’s answer? Yes, “but it certainly was not of interest to me.” Buck replies, “I think $1.5 million is certainly of interest to all | Read More »
Jane Norton for Governor
I put Nightwister’s post on the frontpage for a reason — Dan Maes needs to disappear. If he is considering it, I want to publicly encourage him. I met Dan Maes. When I was in Colorado earlier this year, Maes wanted to meet and asked for mine and RedState’s support. Very few of my friends in Colorado — the same people supporting Buck by and | Read More »
Michael Bennet Says He Has Nothing to Show for All His Votes
What an insufferable moron. Michael Bennet is traipsing around Colorado calling Ken Buck too responsible to be sent to Washington for Buck daring to forego his taxpayer funded salary as District Attorney while campaigning for the Senate. Bennet wants you to know that he has never missed a vote in the United States Senate, but please don’t ask him about his taxpayer funded multi-month vacations | Read More »
Democrats New Attack on Ken Buck: He Is Too Responsible
This may be the dumbest attack ever leveled against a politician on either side of the aisle. Ever. Senator Michael Bennet, in his desperate bid to beat Ken Buck, has come up with a new attack. Ken Buck, a sitting District Attorney, believes it is not right to keep drawing a taxpayer funded salary while spending a good portion of his time out of the | Read More »
Understanding Barack Obama By Proxy Syndrome
Kjersten Forseth of ProgressNow Colorado blasted out an email yesterday seeking to define Ken Buck early as too fringe for Colorado. In her email she said What would you say about a man who thinks you should vote for him because he “doesn’t wear high heels?” What would you say about a man who endorsed a radical abortion ban, and says he even opposes a | Read More »
Is the Colorado Independent Making Up Numbers to Discredit Scott Rasmussen?
As I noted yesterday, Scott Rasmussen has out a new poll showing Ken Buck beating Michael Bennet in Colorado. In fact, back on July 27th, Rasmussen polled Colorado and found in that poll too that Buck is beating Bennet. Well, the left-wing Colorado “Independent” has a story out on the poll and includes this nugget: A July 27 poll saw Bennet pulling down only 42 | Read More »
Buck Beats Bennet
The Democrats said no way. They said Ken Buck is fringe, thinks social security is unconstitutional, and is opposed to the federal government taking over and destroying the student loan industry. The Democrats said there was no way Ken Buck could beat Michael Bennet. Heck, the GOP establishment said the same thing. According to Rasmussen, Buck is beating Bennet 46% to 41%. Maybe that is | Read More »
Ken Buck Wins
On December 21, 2009, I asked a very simple question: Why exactly must we support Jane Norton in Colorado instead of Ken Buck? I’m not saying I am or am not, but why must I? Lots of people think we must because the same guys in Washington who said Charlie Crist was our best hope in Florida say she is in Colorado. The blowback was | Read More »
Paging Tea Party Activists
Just so you know. Consider this an open thread.
His Boots Are Made For Winning
Colorado is a mail-in ballot state for the Republican Primary. 14 counties have actual polling places for the primary, but only 2 out of the top 12 counties in terms of votes. The ballots were mailed out to voters on July 19th. The vast majority of votes will be cast before August 10th. That puts Ken Buck in a very, very good position. In a | Read More »
I Think Cinamon Has Been Replaced By A Shadowy Cabal of Priests
We’ve mentioned before Jane Norton’s reliance on Cinamon out in Colorado. Cinamon helps Jane Norton answer her questions. I was shocked and appalled to hear this public radio interview with Jane Norton. Instead of relying on Cinamon for advice on how to deal with illegal alients, Jane Norton is instead relying on “hispanic clergy.” Their advice? Don’t send illegals home. Give them community service then | Read More »
Despite Jane Norton’s Pre-Emptive Spin, Ken Buck Leads in Money and Polling
Wow. Poor Jane Norton. How the mighty fall. I guess when you hire Josh Penry to do nothing but beat up Ken Buck and deny you’re the lobbyist you once claimed to be, you have trouble selling yourself. Norton, the former Lt. Governor of Colorado, beat Ken Buck in money raised last quarter, but that’s all. And she got those numbers out there early banking | Read More »
