John Frank of the Denver Post takes a look at the gubernatorial candidacy of Republican Victor Mitchell, and the interview includes a very important answer to what will likely be the most-asked question of 2018:
His pitch may draw comparisons to President Donald Trump, but Mitchell didn’t vote for the Republican nominee. Instead, he voted for third-party candidate Evan Mcmullen. [Pols emphasis]
“I’ve been a lifelong Republican, but I couldn’t get there,” he said. “My son’s a West Point cadet. And the way (Trump) spoke about women was very concerning.”
Mark this down in your political notebooks, friends. With Mitchell on the record saying he didn’t vote for Trump, there is no place for any other 2018 candidate to hide when asked about their 2016 choice for President. “Did you vote for Donald Trump?” is an absolute no-brainer question for every candidate seeking public office in the next couple of years.
