Wadhams Named Chief Political Advisor to Hickenlooper

  • 13 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Former State Republican Party Chair Dick Wadhams wasn’t unemployed for long. According to a stunning press release sent out this morning, Wadhams has been named Deputy Political Advisor to Governor John Hickenlooper. A press conference has been scheduled for this afternoon, but as the release explains:

The office of Gov. John Hickenlooper today announced that former Republican Party Chair Dick Wadhams has been appointed as Deputy Political Advisor to the Governor.

“The Governor feels strongly about his bipartisan credentials,” said Alan Salazar, the Governor’s chief policy and political director. “There’s no better way to show that you don’t favor one political party over the other than to hire someone who is truly disliked by both political parties.”

Earlier this year Wadhams announced that he would not run for re-election to a third term as State Republican Party Chair. Last Saturday he was formally replaced when Republicans elected Ryan Call to become their new Party Chair.

“I think the Governor was concerned that too many people looked at him as a Democrat,” said Wadhams. “He’s not a Republican by any means, but my job is about making sure that nobody ever really understands which political party the Governor favors. The Governor has already done a good job of making that unclear, and I’m confident that I can continue to keep those waters murky.”

More after the jump…

April Fool’s, Polsters!

    1. These are tough. It’s a fine line between trying to convince people this might be real for just a moment…but not actually making someone believe it is real.  

  1. Appointing Michael Scott to serve as the new Director of Paper Distribution for the Department of Natural Resources.

    “Scott’s success in selling paper will help Colorado effectively and efficiently move the large amount of bark beetle lumber from the forest and into the marketplace, creating tons of jobs and making lots of money,” Hickenlooper said. “This is a unique opportunity to resolve Colorado’s forest health and budget issues.”

  2. to check out the VeloNews website; thsy’ve been doing it for years:

    Alberto Contador lands new personal sponsorship

    Alberto Contador – the beleaguered Tour de France champion fighting back doping charges – has signed a deal to become the new corporate spokesman for the Chick-Fil-A fast-food restaurant chain in its European expansion plans.

    The company says Contador is a natural fit for plans to expand into Spain.

    Contador, who claims he tested positive for clenbuterol during last year’s Tour after eating contaminated Spanish beef, will take a prominent role in the company’s already popular “Eat Mor Chikin” campaign that graces billboards across America.

  3. was that you wouldn’t be surprised if Hickenlooper did make such an appointment.  

    Saying the guy is murky about his political affiliations is an understatement.
