Not all Coloradans were impressed by Sen. Mark Udalls invitation to liberal billionaire Tom Steyers exclusive Democratic Party fund-raiser.
Mr. Udalls critics turned up the heat after it came to light that the Democrat was among those invited to hobnob Wednesday with the billionaire at his home in San Francisco for a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) fundraiser.
A former hedge-fund manager, Mr. Steyer made a political splash earlier this week by announcing plans to spend $100 million on promoting candidates in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections who will promise to combat climate change.
It just reaffirms that the senator seems more interested in promoting radical environmental causes than defending the economic interests of Coloradans, many of whom could lose their livelihoods, or see their energy bills soar, if environmental extremists like Tom Steyer get their way, said AFP state director Dustin Zvonek.

Well, he’s a commie so ...
Wouldn’t that be a badge of honor?
If he could slip me a million or two I'd be glad to spend 4 or 5 hours a day yelling at the sun and saying "Cool It!".
Anybody got his e-mail address?
Democrat specimen Sen. Mark Udall, facing a tough reelection this year, was nailed on tape echoing the "keep your plan" Big Lie, b/c some 330,000 Coloradans received the cancelation notices he promised they wouldnt.
Specimen Udalls crazed response was to lean on state insurance regulators to change their numbers by changing their vocabulary. He argued plans shouldnt be counted as canceled if a person was eligible to buy a pricier ACA compliant plan.
The insurance regulator resisted Udalls psychotic arguments.
Then things got interesting. CompleteColorado.com obtained and reported on internal state emails of insurance official, Jo Donlin, stating the deranged Udall wanted to trash the states numbers....
Fearing he'd lose his seat, vote-crazed Udall contacted her repeatedly, and when she refused to bend, she received a very hostile call from Udalls chief of staff (maybe more like a "threat"?).
Udalls obsessed interference prompted demands for more information and for an investigation into his twisted conduct.
Almost instantly, Colorados Department of Regulatory Affairs, which oversees the Division of Insurance, issued a statement claiming a "neutral and objective panel" investigated the matter and determined "Udalls office did nothing improper and there was no intimidation."
(waiting for hysterical laughter to die down)
NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS Absolving deranged Senator Udall of culpability is the exact same MO used right before NJ Sen Torricell was forced out of office.
