Heidi Ganahl, You're No Russell Wilson

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

A fundraising email sent out by Republican gubernatorial candidate Hiedi Heidi Ganahl yesterday is being rewarded with some attention, unfortunately not the good kind:

New Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson.

As you can see, Ganahl is hoping to tap into the buzz over the hire of Super Bowl champion quarterback Russell Wilson by the Denver Broncos. Nothing about this empty appeal needs to make sense, which is good because nothing about it makes any sense whatsoever. Here’s the name of a cool football player, now give Heidi Ganahl money? They could have just as well sent a fundraising email about the weather asking to buy Heidi Ganahl a raincoat.

But since Ganahl has gone ahead and invoked the name of the Broncos’ new star quarterback, gushing about how Wilson is “tough, a winner, and always clutch” just like Heidi herself, let’s ask the next logical question: do you suppose the feeling is mutual?

Wilson hasn’t been in town long enough to comment on the Colorado governor’s race, but there is some evidence that Wilson might not approve of a hard-right Republican gubernatorial candidate dropping his name in a fundraising pitch:

This is why it’s generally a good idea to ask famous people first if you’d like to use their name! We don’t know how much umbrage Wilson will take with this, but he’s certainly entitled to some if he wants.

And depending on how politically active the Broncos’ new QB wants to be (here’s looking at you, John Elway), Wilson could make some big and lasting waves.

  1. Not another Hiedi post.  Are we doomed to read about losers for the entire 2022 election cycle?  Ugh!  That could be the number 1 political story in Colorado in 2022.

  2. Heidi, Hiedi Ho may have been misled by seeing a photo from last year:

    "Photo of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Wife Worshipping in Church Goes Viral"

    "The Instagram post shows Wilson on his knees while Ciara stands behind him, holding her hands up in praise."

    Perhaps in her world, everyone who goes to worship is a Republican. 

    1. ^^^THIS^^^

      They read somewhere in 1 Fossilonians that you can’t be a liberal and a Christian (ya know, like that brown-skinned Jesus fella)
