    Mike Coffman's got some friends who think he's worth investing in.

    TPM: GOP Group Makes $48M Bet To Protect House Majority With Early Ad Reservations

    Great article by Corey Hutchins over at the Colorado Independent updating the twists and turns in the slow-rolling petition counting by the SoS

    Robinson, Mitchell, and Lynne biting their nails.

    Recent events, however, should give Lynne some breathing room, and leave Robinson breathing into a paper bag.

    The deadline is just next week, and this nail-biter for the candidates could even go longer if protests and/or legal actions are filed on the GOP side.

    The attitude towards marijuana is turning around rapidly in the Senate

    Chuck Schumer Will Unveil a Marijuana Decriminalization Bill on Friday—Which, Yes, Is 4/20

    Last week, former (Republican) Speaker of the House John Boehner announced that he supports decriminalization and had joined the board of a legal-marijuana investment firm. 

    While it seems passage could be a slam dunk in the Senate, hard to predict what Ryan and the House might have to say.  But if not this year, then surely by 2020 when 18 to 40 year olds will be a significant voting block adding to the pro-legalization crowd.

      It’s time to end Jim Crow…

      Boehner is Benefitting From Marijuana; Blacks are in Prison For Using it. 

      If you want to see an example of staggering hypocrisy in the criminal justice system, consider the contrast between Fate Vincent Winslow, a prisoner in Louisiana, and John Boehner, the Ohio Republican who is a former speaker of the House of Representatives.

      A decade ago, an undercover police officer approached Mr. Winslow, a homeless black man, and asked for help buying marijuana. Mr. Winslow desperately needed the money, so he helped the officer buy two dime bags for a $5 profit. For that, he is serving life without parole for distribution of marijuana in the infamous Angola prison.
