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 »
BREAKING: Dan Maes May Drop Out of CO Gov Race
From the diaries by Erick. Karen Crummy at the Denver Post reports that former CO Senate President John Andrews has withdrawn his endorsement of Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes. Andrews met with Maes to encourage him to drop out of the race so the Party can choose another candidate with a chance to beat the democratic candidate John Hickenlooper in November. Andrews, who as late | Read More »
A tale of two polls: Colorado edition
It seems like most of the third party and independent spoilers this year are harming Democrats, but the Constitution Party’s Tom Tancredo is clearly hurting Republican Dan Maes in the Colorado Governor’s race, currently throwing the lead to Democrat John Hickenlooper. But two new polls on that race, from Magellan Strategies via Real Clear Politics and Rasmussen Reports are so different that I think we | Read More »

Buck *invited* by Romanoff, actually.
Acts of civility all around, really: Andrew Romanoff (former Democratic candidate for CO-SEN) decently invited Ken Buck (R CAND, CO-SEN) to his birthday party, and Ken graciously accepted that invite. The birthday party was also a debt retirement party – the Colorado (and national, of course) Democratic establishment of course has no intention of encouraging future challengers to their anointed picks – so Ken’s present | 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 »
Battleground Senate Poll
From Unlikely Voter: In an open and credited aping of the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner House battleground polls, Public Opinion Strategies has conducted a massive Senate battleground poll. Politico has for us the summary and 150 pages of gory, numerical details. I’m going to see what sense I can make of it.

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 »
Meet Bob McConnell (R CAND, CO-03).
He’s one of the candidates looking to upset John Salazar in November… and if given the chance, he just might do it, too. Bob’s a good guy and he was nice to talk with; I can see why Sarah Palin made it a point to endorse him. If he wins, I think that we have a race here. Bob’s site is here.
