Colorado’s mega-rich liberals Tim Gill and Pat Stryker have it in for conservative Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, who has represented northeastern Colorado since 2003. They have spent countless amounts of money trying to unseat her in the past two election cycles, and are committed to doing it again. This time they believe they have a winning candidate in Democrat Betsy Markey, someone to fulfill their obsession.
But this video clip of Betsy Markey trying to explain her position on the poorly-named Employee Free Choice Act shows that Tim Gill and Pat Stryker still have some work to do with their out-of-touch candidate:
As the Labor Pains blog points out, this is the same Betsy Markey who has sought to woo small businesses but struggles to explain why she supports Big Labor legislation that is unpopular, would needlessly harm business owners – and take away workers’ secret ballots.
It looks like Betsy Markey has just handed Marilyn Musgrave an easy talking point for part of a winning message, thus making a bigger bill for Tim Gill and Pat Stryker to pay if they want to overcome it and somehow find a way to win. It will be hard for Markey to paint her incumbent opponent as out of touch when she is so out of touch on the Employee Free Choice Act.
The Lefties might need to cut back their expectations for their 4th Congressional district darling.
