► Republican Senate candidate Darryl Glenn is losing the last of his marbles. As Peter Marcus writes for the Durango Herald, Glenn really has no idea what’s going on in Colorado:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn says national GOP interests have largely passed him over this election because he’s guaranteed a win.
His comments have Democrats literally laughing out loud.
The comment from Glenn came last week in an interview with The Durango Herald, when Glenn was asked about his lackluster fundraising and dismal polling. He is down by double digits against Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet in several polls.
“I look at it as a compliment,” Glenn said of the lack of national interest. “They know I can beat Michael Bennet on my own.”
A spokesman for Bennet’s campaign could hardly contain himself.
“Can you quote me laughing?” asked Bennet spokesman Andrew Zucker.
Glenn’s comments were reported by the Herald just a few days after he also told the newspaper, “I am the human equivalent of a unicorn.”
► Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson is ignoring repeated requests from Donald Trump to write some big checks to the campaign:
Mr. Adelson had once dangled the possibility of giving as much as $100 million to pro-Trump “super PACs,” an infusion that with a stroke would have given Mr. Trump a financially competitive network of outside groups to back his presidential campaign.
But with less than two months remaining in the campaign, the mercurial casino magnate — who entertained but ultimately rebuffed pitches from an array of Republican candidates during the party’s nominating contest this election cycle — appears to be focusing instead on Republicans in the House and Senate.
► Democrat Morgan Carroll is out with a new television ad that takes a huge swing at Republican Rep. Mike Coffman over his wishy-washy attitude about Donald Trump.
