The Rocky Mountain Right straw poll for the Colorado GOP’s 2010 U.S. Senate primary has concluded, and Aurora city councilman Ryan Frazier came out of nowhere to notch a narrow victory over former state legislative leader and current national committeeman Mark Hillman. (Bob Beauprez finished a distant third.) Either Frazier or Hillman would be an excellent candidate to represent the Republican Party next November.
Speaking of Frazier, fellow RMA blogger Joshua Sharf reports on (and reprints) a letter the councilman wrote to Cherry Creek Schools superintendent Mary Chesley today, arguing for more lenient (and reasonable) treatment of Cherokee Trail High School senior Marie Morrow over the recent “zero-tolerance” expulsion outrage.
Joshua notes that Frazier used “far more diplomatic and statesmanlike language than I could have mustered”. Perhaps that’s why we’re bloggers, and not being touted among the leading contenders for the U.S. Senate.
I’m not sure where Ryan Frazier is more ubiquitous these days: making the rounds to speak to conservative and Republican grassroots events, or here on Mount Virtus. Taking these facts together, it’s hard to see what he could be doing if not paving the way for a run at higher office.

Ryan Frazier spoke at the Adams County GOP meeting today. He’s one heck of a speaker, very dynamic, with a great message. I’m certain we’ll be seeing more of him. If you get a chance to see him speak, I’d encourage you to do so.
Kevin Priola also spoke. He really comes across as genuine, honest, sincere, and trustworthy. He’s another one to watch.
There were other speakers, but these two really stood out to me. I’m really glad we’ve got some excellent up-and-coming GOP politicians.

Ryan had my support, he will give the dems a run for their money in 2010
