|I know it's not likely that these bills will become law, with or without Joe Coors in Congress. But I've lost count of the unlikely things that have happened in American politics over the last two years.
So, given the seriousness of the bills, which would outlaw forms of contraception as well as abortion, they should be taken seriously.
Yet, no reporter has asked Coors if he'd co-sponsor these bills. It's obviously fair and important question.
Asked about Coors, Personhood USA legal analyst Gualberto Garcia-Jones told me via email, "Joe Coors did donate to the Personhood amendment in Colorado in the past. I have not personally met Joe Coors, but I have heard that he is supportive of Personhood as he is pro-life."
Garcia Jones wrote that he welcomes the continued support of Coors, just as he "would welcome all support, whether wealthy and powerful or poor and humble."
Coors is battling Matt Ball in the GOP primary, to be held in June, for the opportunity to challenge U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter. Ball is kicking off his campaign tomorrow at Front Range Community College.
