As Jason Salzman noted earlier this week, Colorado Pols was recently a topic of conversation on 710 KNUS radio with Julie Hayden and Chuck Bonniwell, and apparently this wasn’t the only time Pols came up for discussion last month.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo was a guest on The Peter Boyles Show on 710 KNUS radio on December 29, where he twice mentioned Colorado Pols and The Big Line’s odds for Governor in 2018.
At around the 13:00 mark, Boyles asks Tancredo about his campaign for Governor:
BOYLES: What are you going to do [in the 2018 race for Governor]:
TANCREDO: Well, of course I’m going to win. As a matter of fact, I saw yesterday…Colorado Pols, which is a liberal blog, listed all of the Republican candidates and gave their estimation of our chances of winning the General Election, and I had the best chance of winning. And it was 30% [laughing]. But I was ahead of everybody else – every other Republican.
Later in the interview, at around the 26:00 mark, The Big Line comes up again:
BOYLES: Who do you want to run against?
TANCREDO: Jared Polis. Oh, yeah. To tell you the truth, I think that’s my best chance. And according to Colorado Pols, they said he had a 50% chance of winning.
BOYLES: You always want to fight the best fighter.
TANCREDO: Yeah, I think he’d be the best.
What’s the moral of this story? Keep reading Colorado Pols, of course.
