"If we lose Beauprez's House seat, we'll also hold only a minority (!) of the House seats in CO, 4 'Rats to 3 GOP. That will be the first time we held fewer seats since 1975-1983."

Well, when Beauprez was state GOP Chairman we lost control of the State Senate for the first time in four decades.

I'm going to root for whoever wins the nomination, but I'll admit that I'm pretty unhappy with Beauprez putting his own ambition before the good of the party. Though I'm a lot more unhappy with Bill Owens for backstabbing everyone.

I don't know how much of that was Beauprez's fault. I'll tell you what turned out to be the biggest disaster for the legislative GOP in Colorado -- term limits. As soon as they kicked in, we lost tons of members, and it clearly benefitted the Democrats (in stark contrast to a lot of other states that implemented it -- except maybe California, where it hasn't helped the GOP at all, except immediately after it was in place, from about 1995-97), whereas before the Democrats weren't particularly competitive except in disastrous national years for the GOP (such as 1974).
