From Tom Wiens
Just a few days ago I filed the papers for the Tom Wiens for U.S. Senate Exploratory Committee, Inc. I’m emailing you because I want to know if I can count on you to help me bring Washington back in line with Main Street Colorado. As a small businessman/rancher and former Colorado State Senator, I have the experience to take on Washington insiders and deliver results, not excuses. I am asking you to right now, go to www.tomwiens2010.com and give me your thoughts and show your support by making a contribution.
Why, you are probably asking, would I think about running for the U. S. Senate?
I’ll tell you exactly why: I love my country and Colorado and I am fed up with the direction the politicians in Washington are taking our nation.
I’ve been having conversations with people all over the state and I am hearing the same issues surfacing over and over again:
Coloradans are angry, and they have a right to be. They are working twice as hard for half the opportunity, and are worried more than ever about losing their jobs.
People across American, and especially in Colorado, feel like the politicians in Washington aren’t listening anymore. Many feel the politicians actually know what the average person wants, and they simply do not care. Right now there is a monopoly of power in Washington and they are going to do what they want and forget about the rest of us.
The site is short on anything but a plea for cash.
But it looks like he’s serious.
I guess we’ll know for sure if he does Caplis & Silverman next week, which is when I’d guess Norton officially announces. Or perhaps if he agrees to show up in Keystone and get straw polled. Or maybe if he insults Dick W. and the straw poll.
