CO Democrats Get Desperate

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Democrats thought that the retirement of Sen. Wayne Allard would hand them another Senate seat on a silver platter.  With recent polling telling a very different story, Colorado Democrats are now laughably trying to make a story out of Bob Schaffer calling Republicans in the state legislature “centrist” and “mainstream”.   Such attempts are ludicrous and scream […]

New Colorado Poll Extremely Promising

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

A second poll now shows that the Colorado Senate race in in a statistical dead head, with Rep. Mark Udall and former Rep. Bob Schaffer running  neck and neck.  Just a few months ago, Udall enjoyed a small but statistically significant lead.  That lead has since disappeared.  Though dismissed by some early in the race, […]

Field Cleared for Schaffer

Thursday, December 6th, 2007

Earlier this week, a poll showed former Rep. Bob Schaffer narrowly leading Rep. Mark Udall.  It’s been an especially good week for the Schaffer campaign as his primary opponent, Wayne Wolf, has decided to call it quits and run for Congress instead.  Although Wolf was never going to be a serious challenge for Schaffer, he could […]

Schaffer Leads Udall

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Okay, so it’s a statistically insignificant lead, but this is big news.  Democrats view the seat of retiring Senator Wayne Allard as one of their greatest pick-up opportunities of the 2008 cycle.  Previous polls had shown Rep. Mark Udall with narrow leads over former Rep. Bob Schaffer.  Schaffer’s numbers have pretty much held in the low-40s, […]

Peacenic Udall Targeted

Monday, December 3rd, 2007

An independent group launched the opening salvo in what is certain to be a highly contentious battle between former Rep. Bob Schaffer and Rep. Mark Udall.  The ads focus on two of Udall’s countless liberal positions and help Coloradans to realize just how far from them the sitting Commi Congressman is.  This will be just […]

Schaffer Off to Credible Start

Friday, July 13th, 2007

In an otherwise bad week for Republicans, some good news came in from Colorado.  Former Rep. Bob Schaffer posted a strong second quarter and raked in over $700,000 in less than three months.  This is big news in light of the fact that some Republicans expressed concern that he might not be able to post […]

Democrat Disharmony

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

The far left was elated when Rep. Mark Udall announced his Senate bid, thinking that it offered them a great chance to pick up an open Republican seat.  Now, though, they may be having buyer’s remorse.  Udall signed on to a war funding bill that would not set deadlines, thus turning on the Democrat base, with […]

Schaffer Makes It Official

Monday, May 14th, 2007

Former Rep. Bob Schaffer Saturday night announced that he will challenge Rep. Tom Udall to replace retiring Sen. Wayne Allard.  The announcement comes after a misstep with the Teller County GOP, many of whose members already said that Schaffer was running.  Now, though, that is behind him and he’s moving full speed ahead at the […]

Schaffer Gets In

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

Former Rep. Bob Schaffer has decided to enter the race for the seat of retiring Sen. Wayne Allard.  Schaffer gives Republicans a top-tier challenger for Rep. Mark Udall, the presumptive Democrat nominee, in the race to replace retiring Republican Sen. Wayne Allard.  Schaffer’s recruitment was critical after former Rep. Scott McInnis opted out of the race.
Now, […]

Opportunity Knocks for Conservatives in CO

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

Former Rep. Scott McInnis said in a press release yesterday that he would not be a candidate for Senate.  The decision is surprising in light of the fact that he had said early on that there was no question that he would run.  McInnis`s exit clears the way for conservatives, for whom he would have […]
