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 »

Shouldn’t This Make Him An American Hero?
It’s the 1990′s. Janet Reno is Attorney General. Waco has happened. Columbine has happened. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms is aggressively pursuing cases out west of suspected militia members. The ATF expanded the cases to gun dealers as the Clinton administration wanted to pursue further restrictions on how gun dealers could sell guns. United States Attorneys were using these cases to advance their | Read More »

Let’s get this straight: SurveyUSA, an independent polling company, has Ken Buck leading by 16 points in Colorado.

The Battle Moves to Colorado
Conservatives did a marvelous job rallying in South Carolina and Utah. Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, and Jeff Duncan scored major conservative victories in South Carolina. Mike Lee will go on to be the next senator from Utah. The next big race will be Ken Buck vs. Jane Norton in Colorado. And conservatives need to rally to Ken Buck. Already the Norton campaign has gone totally | Read More »

Are You Kidding Me?!?!?!

Jane Norton says her husband works for the Alliance Defense Fund (a great organization), but won’t comment without reading the legislation. Ken Buck? He went | Read More »
Can Jane Norton Think For Herself?
Jane Norton is a nice lady. Don’t believe me? Ask Ken Buck. He has not been going around the campaign trail personally attacking Jane Norton, just pointing out policy differences. Despite the establishment talking points that those differences are minimal, if at all, they are actually quite big on a few big issues. On the paramount issue — who will be conservative before being a | Read More »
