Who knew our meeting with Marc Holtzman would create such a stir among political insiders? First, the honest observations of Mike, Joshua, and myself get quoted in the latest release from the Holtzman campaign. Then the Dead Governors feature us as the leading topic of weekend chatter.
(I haven’t always seen eye to eye with the anonymous, center-left proprietors of ColoradoPols, but I am grateful to them for providing a link to my site.)
As for my comments? They’re all real, folks. Take them for what they’re worth. No detriment to Congressman Beauprez, just my genuinely positive impressions of his opponent’s campaign.
The three of us who met with Holtzman don’t speak for the entire Rocky Mountain Alliance, but we represent a highly informed element of Colorado’s center-right Republican community. And we share our honest opinions and assessments. That’s all.
Be sure that I will post more on this topic as the race unfolds, including an endorsement announcement that is becoming increasingly imminent. (For whatever an endorsement from this Web site is worth.)
And a final note to my fellow Colorado Republicans – let’s learn a lesson from last year’s Schaffer-Coors campaign. Whether it’s Ref C and D or the governor’s race, we can disagree with the party but let’s emerge united in the end.
Gov. Owens has let us down, but we need to support him and our legislative leaders to make sure they fight vigorously to protect taxpayers’ interests. Let’s conduct a vigorous and persuasive primary campaign for the gubernatorial candidate of your personal choice, but let’s all rally behind the winner next year.
