Beauprez Does Well With GOP Caucus-Goers on Tuesday

Confused by the caucus results?

Interesting stuff from Lynn Bartels at "The Spot" late last night:

Secretary of State is the winner of a straw poll for gubernatorial candidates conducted during Tuesday night’s GOP precinct caucuses, although results are incomplete and not every county asked for a show of hands.

Former Congressman only entered the race Monday, but he came in second behind Gessler in several counties, including Adams, Broomfield, Douglas and Larimer.

These results should, of course, be taken with a grain of salt considering that the three most important counties for a statewide candidate — Arapahoe, Denver, and Jefferson — did not take straw polls. Still, we're surprised to see such a strong showing from Beauprez, who filed his campaign paperwork on Monday and announced his bid for Governor Tuesday morning.

Also noteworthy: Sen. Greg Brophy had very little support in the counties that held straw polls. We would think such an outspoken conservative as Brophy would have had a bit more support among GOP caucus-goers.

    Beauprez isn't the perfect candidate, but measured against Scott Gessler, he takes on statesmanlike qualities!   For that matter, so does my toilet seat.
