I didn't know which CD I was in until my ballot told me. Had re-registered recently to test 1) how the parties would react to a "new" independent voter (Sheesh, the Post didn't even call me for their Super-Duper Undecided Voter Confab and EEG test), and 2) how our Super-Awesome, Freedom-Defending, Election-Saving, Idiot-Savant Secretary of State would do.
The Parties get a "C": Mailers didn't start 'til late and I had no idea which CD I was in despite various searches, though the idea of being "represented" by Mike Coffman was always in the back of my mind.
The SecState gets a "B": I was allowed to vote despite all the incredible bullshit this guy created, but was duly unimpressed by the faux-official voting volunteer who confirmed that I am truly, despite some conflicting evidence, me.
The Koch Brothers Profit and Lie Machine gets a "D" pending outcome of the election: I sure am glad they wasted their money sending me lie-filled mailers of every type.
Rumor has it CO Senator Brandon Shaffer, current candidate for CD4, will be deciding this week whether or not to jump into the CD6 race, abandoning his campaign in CD4. My guess is, he's waiting for CO Representative Joe Miklosi's numbers to come out from the last quarter. For those who have not been paying close attention, Colorado's CD4 became less easily winnable as a result of recent Congressional redistricting.
I respect and admire Brandon Shaffer; he is literally one of my political heroes. Not just that - I am indebted to him. I've even made calls for his race in CD4 very recently.
Loyal readers on Colorado Pols may remember Senator Shaffer's unwavering support of Michael Bennet in the 2010 Senate Race. Not only was Senator Shaffer one of just a few legislators who believed in Michael Bennet from the beginning (add State Representatives Karen Middleton and Daniel Kagan, as well as Congressman Jared Polis to that list), but he also took a lot of grief for Bennet at the Boulder Convention and Assembly. I stood by Senator Shaffer then, and always will.
