Skip to comments.Fallout over claim of ‘homosexual lobby’ (Colorado GOP Congressional primary)
Posted on 07/21/2006 5:31:15 PM PDT by Clintonfatigued
A mailing accusing Republican congressional hopefuls Jeff Crank and Lionel Rivera of supporting the radical homosexual lobby may have backfired on its sender.
At least two volunteers have since left the campaign of state Sen. Doug Lamborn, whom opponents are trying to tie to the mailing. And Sen. Andy McElhany has sent a scathing e-mail message declaring, Those of us who know Doug Lamborn best are not supporting him.

Wow, this primary is becoming very contentious. I can't tell who the front-runner is.
It's hard to tell which candidate is the best one. All seem to be conservative to one degree or another. It would help if a Colorado Freeper would post.
I know the Club for Growth endorsed one of the candidates, wasn't it Lamborn? From the little I know about the candidates, my favorite right now is Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera, who's a military veteran and a strong social conservative. It would also be helpful to have another anti-amnesty Hispanic in the House.
I agree with you on that. Also, as Congressman, Rivera would have a great future in state politics, perhaps as a U.S. Senator.
Both Rivera and Crank seem like good candidates. Lamborn does indeed have Club for Growth's endorsement, as well as that of fmr. Sen. Bill Armstrong's and 14 sitting Congressmembers: http://lambornforcongress.org/static/fourteen-gop.pdf
There are several in the race that were true-Reaganites: among them are Lamborn, Rayburn, and Bremmer. The other three while I am sure the are great guys, were kind of squishy on the issues: while the CC flyer was not tactful it did tell the truth about both Crank and Rivera's records about supporting the homosexual agenda in one way (degree or another). Rivera did allow a homosexual parade in 2003 in CO Springs (He has since appologized, and has denied future homosexual events in the city in 2004, '05 and '06!), while Jeff Crank endorsed Richard Skorman (a homosexual activist that helped a campaign to promote homosexuality-in conflict with Focus (on the family) While Crank was head of Governmental Affairs at CO Spgs. Chamber. Now he may believe this was a mistake, but never admited as such (once again I am not attacking these candidates, but their records speak for themselves, they had a record as squishy repubs.)! They may still be good people. All I have to say is I am happy that Lamborn won the Congressional Primary!)
