holtzman takes another shot at owens today in the rocky over ref c & d. where's beauprez on this issue? seems to me he's the slippery snake who won't be pinned down until the polling data comes back.

Anybody else notice that Holtzman's increasing aggressiveness, and new penchant for taking shots at fellow republicans, has directly coincided with him hiring Laura Teal?

Jane Norton running for CD3?

I have to say I am in agreement. I have seen that she prefers to use the smear attack in place of solid campaigning.
After he latest escapades in the Post and News, one has to wonder how many volunteers she can attract with a reputation of throwing them to the wolves at the first sign of a problem.

Jane Norton is running for CD-3. Interesting and will make for a great primary against Walcher.

Jane Norton for DC-3? Interesting....
From the Desk of... has an interesting take on Holtzman's attack of Owens in the Rocky.

A coalition opposed to Social Security changes brought waffles to its news conference Wednesday, accusing U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez, R-Colo., of "waffling" on privatization.
"Mr. Beauprez has spoken vaguely against privatization and in favor of privatization," Bill Vandenberg, who heads Coloradans United to Protect Social Security, said at the state Capitol. "He wants his waffles and wants to eat them, too."
If he intends to actually run for governor - I expect him actually articulate his opinions on issues like these.

Has the Lt. Gov put out anything actually saying she is running?
July 07, 2005 at 10:17 AM
That is what I am wondering but if she is kudos to her.

I think Holtzman is smart to go after Owens. He needs to separate himself from Beauprez and Owens.

I think its much more likely that Jane Norton run for CD 6 if Tancredo makes the leap and runs for Prez...

"I think Holtzman is smart to go after Owens. He needs to separate himself from Beauprez and Owens."
exactly. as someone pointed out on here yesterday Holtzman is going to play the anti-establishment role in this primary.
July 07, 2005 at 11:19 AM
Wow, that would be an interesting primary of Jane Norton v. John Andrews if it turned out to be true in CD 6. I definitely would root for Jane in that one.
I don't know though.. my guess is that Tom will pull more of Dennis Kucinich type scenario to where he will run for Pres. for the sole purpose of trying to shape the debate while simultaneously holding on to his congressional seat. Rationale for doing so: without Rep. before his name he loses a lot of legitamacy, power and publicity in pushing his agenda. Who knows...it should be interesting to see!

Does Tancredo have any legitimacy left to lose...?

Conservative - What you saw in the Rocky this morning was Mark Holtzman's desperate attempt to portray the Gov.'s endorsement of BB as being tied to Mark's opposition to Ref. C. For a more complete and accurate take on the endorsement, see the Denver Post coverage. Susan Greene points out that Owens' endorsement of BB came despite BB's own opposition to Ref. C.
Here's how Beauprez responded to John Andrews' "Backbone America" survey on the issue of Ref. C.
"The citizens of Colorado should be thankful for TABOR for several reasons. First of all, TABOR not only didn’t cause our current budget problem, the fiscal discipline it forced upon state government during times of economic prosperity helped prevent a budget catastrophe during recent recessionary times. Secondly, TABOR gives the citizens the authority to determine whether or not they will allow the state to take more or keep more of their taxes. We aren’t at the mercy of politicians to determine how much of our hard earned money the state should be allowed to spend.
As I spend time talking with experts on the state budget, I am increasingly concerned that Referendum C is to our budget problems what a chain saw would be to brain surgery –a blunt instrument for a delicate job."
Notice that unlike Holtzman, Beauprez didn't resort to personal attacks against anyone with a different opinion. This is yet another example of the fact that Beauprez is a seasoned, mature leader and Holtzman simply isn't. I believe that is the real reason for the Governor's endorsement.

Tancredo doesn't need to give up his seat to run for President. He'll be long out of the running before he has to make that decision in 2008.

Now Holtzman says he was against Ref A...since when?
I don't remember him leading that charge. In addition to attacking Republicans he seems intent on saying anything to garner votes in 3rd CD.
July 07, 2005 at 02:22 PM
Glad to see the governor's folks posting here...
July 07, 2005 at 02:25 PM
The fact that Holtzman now claims he "opposed Ref. A" is beside the BIG point...Holtzman has a bad habit of rewriting history to suit the moment, stretching the truth, and outright lying...it will catch him much sooner than later.
Really, like John Elway and George Forman and Nancy Reagan are going to campaign with him. Right!
July 07, 2005 at 02:41 PM
So if you vote for Holtzman you will recieve a football, a grill and a copy of "Hellcats of the Navy." Way to go Holtzman.
July 07, 2005 at 04:19 PM
Just got the word. No way is Norton running for 3rd. She's got big contracts/money coming her way.
July 07, 2005 at 06:14 PM
Aaron Tucson (Durango Mayor) is a better chioce than Norton, anyway.
