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.

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 »
Jane Norton: AARP Lobbyist During Hillarycare Fight
Recently Jane Norton gave an interview to the Colorado Statesman. There is this curious exchange in it: CS: Did you used to work for AARP? JN: I did, I did. CS: What did you do for them? JN: I was — gosh, what was my title? Oh, that was so long ago. I’m sorry, can I get back with you on that? I can’t even | Read More »
Jane Norton Wants a Pro-Abortion, Tax and Spend Senator as a Mentor
Jane Norton gave the Colorado Statesman a very eye opening interview. First, she walked back some of the attacks her campaign has been making on Ken Buck. Second, she again couldn’t remember key details to questions and had to rely on Cinamon, though not by name this time. Third, when asked who she wanted as a mentor in the United States Senate, Jane Norton said | Read More »
Jane Norton in Full Meltdown. Takes a Page From Tim Bridgewater’s Playbook
The United States Chamber of Bailouts has gone to Colorado to endorse the person they view as most likely to vote for bailouts in the future: Jane Norton. In taking the Chamber’s endorsement, like Tim Bridgewater before her, Jane Norton has decided to directly attack Senator Jim DeMint. “DeMint lost more of his fair share,” she said, reminding listeners that the senator’s favored candidate in | Read More »
