The Endorsements are Flying in CO-07

In the last week or so, Democrat Brittany Pettersen has announced a slew of high-profile endorsements in her campaign for Congress in CO-07, including retiring Rep. Ed Perlmutter, Sen. Michael Bennet, and Reps. Diana DeGette, Joe Neguse, and Jason Crow.

Perhaps in response, the campaign of Republican Laurel Imer countered with its own endorsement reveal on Wednesday:


That’s right — Laurel Imer has been endorsed by her son, Weston Imer!

This is both kinda sweet and pretty hilarious all at once. But it got us thinking…perhaps Pettersen could do the same with her own son, Davis Silverii:


Davis is only two years old, so he hasn’t yet had the chance to be a surrogate for a Presidential candidate. But he definitely has a solid head of lettuce working in his favor.

    Davis is a Toddler, not a baby. Show some respect.

    For the record, I’m pretty sure my mom’s too old to run? . . .

    (. . . and, I don’t think she’s interested anyway.)

    I for one think it admirable that family values have been maintained in the Imer family.

    I won't be running, but if I did, I think I would ask for the endorsement of my Great Dane — he'd probably be willing.  My cats?  Iffy.  And the service dog puppy would almost certainly decline, cautious about implying an endorsement of the organization that owns him.

    Is it just me, or does that Imer kid present a face that deserves a custard pie?
