True, but that was hype. Bill Ritter is openly pro-life, and hasn't backed down from that stance in spite of pressure to do so by liberal interest groups. And as Denver County District Attorney, it's not as if he represented a conservative constituancy.
I'm not endorsing his candidacy, but better him than a more liberal Democrat.
The question is, just how "Conservative" is Ritter on everything else ? It seems like the Democrats are very tepid about his candidacy because of his pro-life stance and would prefer Hickenlooper.
