Republican Congressman Mike Coffman has been in elected office for 30 years, but it’s looking more and more like his political career has reached the end of the line in 2018. Multiple public polls have shown Coffman trailing Democrat Jason Crow by significant margins (Coffman has even released internal polls that show him losing), and national Republican backers are pulling out of CO-6 — a clear sign that Coffman is considered to be a lost cause as the GOP scrambles to find some way to hold on to their House majority.
Coffman’s own desperation is palpable. Long known as a politician who will take every position on every issue, Coffman hammered the panic button recently when said that he would even consider supporting impeachment proceedings against President Trump (never mind the fact that Coffman has voted with Trump 96% of the time in Congress).
But Coffman and Colorado Republicans aren’t done yet. They managed to raise the ridiculous bar another few feet with this new mailer:

In case you can’t see the embedded image, we’re talking about a mail piece paid for by the Colorado Republican Party that talks about how Coffman stands up to the Republican Party. Of course, Coffman doesn’t actually “stand up” to the Republican Party, but the very idea that the State GOP is pushing this message is almost too absurd to believe.
Almost too absurd to believe.
