Yesterday Republican state senator Dave Schultheis announced he would be retiring from office in 2010. This evening a press release went out from (and about) one of my Leadership Program of the Rockies classmates:
Representative Kent Lambert, House District 14, will make a short public political announcement on Thursday, November 5, at 12:00 at the El Paso County Republican Headquarters, 205 Sutton Road, Colorado Springs, CO, 80907. An opportunity for media Q&A will follow. [link added]
Connection between the announcements of Schultheis and Lambert? It would be hard to speculate as anything else. You didn’t think Tom McDowell would go unchallenged in his quest for Senate District 9, did you?
No one has a stronger 2009 rating from the Colorado Union of Taxpayers than Kent Lambert.
