For what it’s worth, one week before a heated primary election in Colorado’s 5th Congressional District, I’m supporting – and urging all my readers to support – common sense conservative Jeff Crank. At first, I paid little attention to this race, in part because it’s outside my district and keeping up with a six-way Republican primary seemed like too much. I thought that two of the three frontrunner candidates looked like good solid conservatives, and I have more knowledgeable friends on both sides, so I let it go.
But reading about recent developments has convinced me that Doug Lamborn’s campaign tactics are a sign that he is less fit for office, and that Jeff Crank would be a much preferable choice for Republicans in Colorado Springs.
The fact that Hugh Hewitt of all people is bringing national attention to the primary with his support of Crank could be enough to tip the scales in his favor. But he can’t adequately respond to the unfair attacks without sufficient campaign funds. Please read Hugh’s latest post on the dishonest CD-5 primary mudslinging, and support the Crank campaign if you are able.
