Lynn-
What do you think Coffman will run for now? nothing, SOS or the 7th?
and do you think O'Donnell's campaign for the 7th is going to be hurting without Matt M. this time around?

Ter Ducken

I'd like to ask one more question if I may. Having covered the 7th CD, do you think the registration, geography, lifestyle, etc. of the district gives a natural advantage to a Democrat or Republican candidate?

And part two, if you could create the perfect candidate for the 7th CD, from appearance/age/demographic to issues, background, and resume, what would that candidate look like. In other words, what type of candidate is ideally suited to that district in your mind?

Sorry so long-winded and thanks again.

I have the same opinion of Chris Frates as as his colleagues at the Denver Post.


Lynn Bartels

Sorry guys I have to back to the Senate floor. I shall return - and with shorter answers. Kelley Harp called me a windbag!

Alva Adams

If you have any more questions for Lynn Bartels, get them in quickly.

1. Cuteness aside how good a Speaker is Romanoff -- do not rank on glibness but effectiveness please
2. Spradly -- how good a Speaker? Does she have either the talent or ambition to seek and win another major office
Thank you

Vlad:
I know this sounds crazy as the Senate and the House are only yards from each other at the Capitol, but I'm not in the House much at all. You live in different worlds here. I'm in the Senate or Senate committees all day.
The press office is across from the women's room, where you tend to hear a lot of bitching if there is a problem. I haven't heard complaints there.
And I haven't heard it in the hall either.

As for Lola Spradley, although I wasn't down here then, I did hear complaints, not so much at her but at the Lola Spradley-Keith King team. A Republican told me they just weren't a lot of fun, and part of the job needs to have some fun to it.

That said, Spradley got the energy thing passed in November. I don't know if she has statewide appeal. It would depend on the rest.

my office is across

Dear bloggers:
Sorry I'm so behind. Blame Mark Hillman. He introduced a tenure amendment on the floor this afternoon!

Anyhow, to the questions:
Lynn-

and do you think O'Donnell's campaign for the 7th is going to be hurting without Matt M. this time around?

I keep hearing that Coffman will run for SOS but who knows.
And Rick may not have Matt this time around but he has two people who weren't on his side last time: Bill Owens and Bob Beauprez.

John Sapien

Everybody knows Dick Wadhams ran Rick's campaign last time. Is Matt M. coming back to run Rick's campaign? Does it really matter?

Dear Ter:
Whew. What a question. I'm partial to the 7th having covered it in 2002. I still love our primary picture of all the candidates under the sign in Golden.
There's such an irony to that district.
Democrat Mike Feeley basically engineers their party doing the unthinkable and taking over the state Senate in 2000. He said he felt if Democrats didn't have a shot in redistricting, the party was a goner.
Beauprez was the GOP chair at the time. Turns out he lost the battle, but won the war.
Politicos had assumed the new 7th district would be in the Arapahoe County area and would be Mike Coffman's.
It turns out to be a horseshoe around Denver. Feeley and Beauprez run and Bob wins in a squeaker.

Actually, those two candidates are pretty hard to top. Feeley, a Marine, a moderate Democrat and everyone's favorite Irishman. Bob, a dairy banker turned successful banker with that Tom Bodet, leave the light on for you voice.

The voters in that district went for Gore in 2000, so it's definitely a see-saw CD.

I think of the district as working families so Rick's bachelor status could be an issue. Bob brought it up in 2002.

If voters are looking for a woman, that might give Peggy Lamm an edge.

John:
It's news to me that Dick ran the campaign. I bet it's even bigger news to Matt.
I don't think he's coming back -- he's in Washington keeing us informed of beige alerts -- and I don't think it matters.
Should Rick win, I wouldn't be surprised if he offered Matt chief of staff.

Dear political junkies:

I've been here since 7 and am about to head out. I appreciate your questions, comments and personal e-mails to me.

Sorry I couldn't respond quickly. I had to run back and forth to the Senate.

Thanks Lynn, I really enjoyed it.

Brian

Another thanks, Lynn. I definately enjoyed it, and learned a few things in the process. Please encourage your coworkers to consider similar Q&A's (preferably here on Colorado Pols.) We political junkies are always hungry.

Lynn
Governor Ritter has passed several new laws recently that will go in effect as of July of 2007. Could you give me a list of them?
I appreciate your time,thanks. Carol
