Two quick updates from the Republican primary campaign trail in Colorado’s increasingly competitive 7th Congressional District. First, an unsurprising big-name endorsement for newcomer Lang Sias from U.S. Senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain. I’m not sure how much that excites the Republican base locally.
“Congressman Perlmutter owes it to the citizens of the 7th Congressional District to repudiate the incredibly hurtful statements made by Democrat Harry Reid and his intentional distortion of history.
“Let me be clear: When Harry Reid compares Republicans to slaveholders, he insults me and every other African American who has spent so many years attempting to put the horrors of slavery behind us….
Democrats must be so proud to have Harry Reid as a leader of their party.
Also, Don Johnson reports that this morning, to a crowd of over 100 at the Arapahoe County Republican Men’s Club, Frazier went after Ed Perlmutter for “voting with the San Francisco liberal Speaker Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time.”
