What an amazing year for Politics in the U.S.A. On March 6, 2010, the 912 project and tea party groups combined to host a Candidate Search 2010 Forum at the Douglas County, CO Events Center. The events center was divided in half for the event. One side had tables for candidates and other sponsors, kind of like a trade show. The other half held a stage and seating for the crowd to hear the candidates. The event lasted all afternoon. 1. The candidates that appeared all gave a short background intro and a 5 minute stump speech followed by some fairly intense questioning from the strongly independent crowd. For the Colorado Governor's race, both of the GOP announced candidates, Scott McInnis and Dan Maes, appeared. Mr. Hickenlooper was a no-show. For the Colorado U.S. Senate race, candidates Steve Barton, Jane Norton, CleveTidwell, Ken Buck, and Tom Wiens appeared. Our current sitting Senator Bennett and Andrew Romanoff were no-shows. The area reserved for candidate tables had a lot of Independent candidates as well as Republicans. Hats off to Diane Bailey, a Democrat candidate for County Treasurer for having the courage, as the lone Dem, to appear. Its too bad that Hickenlooper, Bennet and Romanoff are in full bunker mentality. Independents are the biggest set of voters in Colorado. When all of the major Democrat Candidates are afraid of the biggest voter group, you have a true mess on the Obama side.
