I have no doubt that we can retake the Senate. The House will be a tougher fight but still possible. The challenge will be the Gov’s seat. I suspect that like this recall election, there will be a whole lot of outside money coming in from unions, MAIG, and other leftists to defend Hickenlooper. He has become their poster boy in the west.
I’ve been thinking that Tom Tancredo is now our best gubernatorial bet. Curiously, the morning he announced his candidacy on the radio, the program host (Peter Boyles) was silenced within moments and fired soon thereafter. Tancredo has been persona non grata in the RNC for many years, but he remains wildly popular with the grassroots. The GOP establishment in Colorado is a dysfunctional and self-defeating organization, as we know, but the Liberty Movement has been gaining popularity. Tancredo has great appeal to the grassroots Liberty Movement voters, and also to those Republicans who spend more time at work than at the country clubs.
If the GOP convinces some big-name statist like Elway or Beauprez to seek the Governor’s office, IMHO Colorado will only get more chicken poop.
Good news. The CO recall groups are joining forces to repeal the gun control laws.
