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 »
Dan Maes: Political Suicide Bomber
Promoted to the front by Erick because Dan Maes must drop out for the good of the people of Colorado and of the party he purportedly would lead. Almost two weeks ago I wrote this. I truly believed it was in the best interests of Coloradans, especially in the long term, to continue to support Dan Maes in the Governor race. That all changed for | 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 »
Betsy Markey (D, CO-04) speaker is kind of… strange.
I had to cut this down quite a bit, but below is the highlight of a clip of former Energy and Transportation Secretary Frederico Pena, who apparently thinks that internment camps (presumably stuffed to the brim with Latinos) are in our future if Cory Gardner beats Betsy Markey in November. Along the way, he gets the historical record fairly badly wrong. Expanded text after the | 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 »
Has Dan Maes been well and truly kneecapped?
Any political party must work as a team to win. While the primary process will become at times a competitive and even divisive, any inability to set those feelings aside and back the nominee will give the party trouble. A few Republicans this cycle know what kind of trouble that is, but none has more than Dan Maes against Democrat John Hickenlooper for Colorado Governor. | Read More »
As CO-07 goes, so does the nation?
That’s certainly the subtext of this Washington Post article on the district. CO-07 is described as being an almost stereotypical suburban swing district (the article goes so far to describe it as being designed to be 50/50 in partisan breakdown); it currently has a two-term Democratic incumbent (Ed Perlmutter) and went 59% for Obama in the last election – thus making it representative of the | Read More »
Sen. Michael Bennet (D, CO): Stimulus hypocrite.
Either that, or he’s lost all situational awareness of the relationship between cause and effect. August, 2010: …not only do we have $12 trillion in debt, not only have we mortgaged ourselves to the Chinese, but the tragedy of it is, we have absolutely nothing to show for it, absolutely nothing to show for it. We haven’t invested in our roads, our bridges, our transportation, | 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 »
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 »
