  1. Bernie Sanders endorses Democrat Emily Sirota in primary challenge against Paul Rosenthal

    Sanders’ backing could translate into grassroots support and a fundraising boost for Sirota, although her campaign said Thursday she’s already raised more than $24,000 in the six days since announcing her bid — twice what Rosenthal, the incumbent, reported raising during the most recent three-month reporting period.

    In a statement, Sirota called Sanders “one of America’s strongest and most powerful voices for social and economic justice” and said she’s running for the legislative seat because she agrees with him that “the status quo is completely unacceptable.”

    “Right now, Colorado’s economy is booming — but we are not ensuring that this growth is benefiting working families,” Sirota said. “Many here in southeast Denver are struggling to afford basic necessities such as healthcare, housing, college, and retirement, all while our public education and infrastructure is underfunded. That must change. I am thrilled to receive Senator Sanders’ endorsement in this campaign — and I am excited to work with him, his supporters and everyone here in southeast Denver to make sure we have a representative who is standing up to the special interests and fighting for this community every single day.”

    1. In a reliably Democratic district, we will apparently have a 3-way contest for the primary. A 6-year incumbent with dismissed (on jurisdiction) harassment charges, an activist who lost her previous race for a school board seat, and a first-time candidate who works for Planned Parenthood's political arm.

      Ought to be interesting.

    2. I'm psyched. Women get shit done, and tend not to be all gropey mit der colleagues.  And, of course, I love it that Sanders is straight-up backing Sirota.

    1. “Somehow.”  Imagine that??? . . .

      . . . Seeing today how much the markets are liking the Orange-faced Shitgibbon’s stable genius and steady leadership . . . 

      . . . release the flying monkeys!

    2. What's more interesting to me is whether Trump will claim credit for the (as of this moment) about 515 580 675 point dump in the Dow.  My bet is someone else will take the hit.

      __ Deep State

      __ Congressional Democrats

      __ Congressional Republicans

      __ Other

  2. Ashley Wheeland deserves the respect she’s earned in Colorado for her strong support of reproductive justice for all women as the Policy and Legislative Director for Planned Parenthood.  She worked as a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community as an ally and Policy Director for One Colorado.   She has also provided life long support of people with disabilities (her Mom has a traumatic brain injury and her Dad who is visually impaired).  Aa member of the Civil Rights Clinic at the DU Sturm College of Law Ashley was among those recognized as Attorney of the Year for their efforts in a successful suit brought forth to address administrative segregation of an inmate in need of mental health support.  Ashley was the Policy Director at Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and she helped to set up the Colorado Medicaid Health Exchange.   And she was a Legislative Director for Secretary Ken Salazar when he was in the US Senate. She is eminently qualified to serve the folks in this district and in Colorado.
