El Presidente has some potentially earth-shaking news (for active lovers of liberty and the handful of Colorado political insiders who are paying attention at this point, that is): Despite the weak and transparent efforts of the liberal Dead Governors to marginalize his campaign with ridicule, Aurora city councilman Ryan Frazier not only won but dominated the competition in a U.S. Senate straw poll among the conservative Douglas County GOP faithful (complete with video of Frazier’s Saturday speech at the Douglas County Lincoln Day dinner).
Other names in the straw poll included former Congressman Bob Beauprez, popular radio talk show host Dan Caplis, Weld County district attorney Ken Buck, and businessman Cleve Tidwell.
This result follows on the heels of Rocky Mountain Right’s February straw poll in which Ryan Frazier edged Mark Hillman (now officially a non-candidate) as Colorado Republican insiders’ favorite for the U.S. Senate nomination.
How do you spell Momentum?
As national pundits look to 2010 and one of the hottest U.S. Senate races on the political radar, it will become difficult from now on to talk about the race against selected Senator Michael Bennet without prominently mentioning the name Ryan Frazier.
