Whoa! Heidi Ganahl Won't Host Election Night Party

  • 12 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE: Somehow Hiedi Heidi Ganahl found a way to make this all even weirder:

—–
Republican gubernatorial candidate Hiedi Heidi Ganahl is not exactly projecting confidence ahead of Tuesday’s Primary Election showdown with Greg Lopez:

Heidi Ganahl will spend Election Night singing into an unplugged microphone.

This is a pretty amazing declaration by ANY campaign, let alone one that was supposed to be the frontrunner for the Republican nomination for Governor. It is very uncommon for high-profile campaigns to refuse to host an Election Night party to gather and thank supporters. The only other example of this we can think of occurred in 2016, when then-Senate hopeful Jon Keyser made it known that he planned to watch his own defeat in private. Here’s what Republican pundit Kelly Maher said at the time about Keyser’s announcement:

“That’s a really bad sign. The only reason to not have an event is if you have some information that doesn’t point to a favorable outcome.”

As we wrote in 2016, even Scott McInnis held an Election Night party in 2010 when he knew he was going to lose the GOP Primary for Governor.

This is a terrible look for the Colorado Republican Party even if Ganahl ends up winning the nomination tomorrow. That the real action for Republicans on Tuesday will be at some place called “Deep Space” is a joke that writes itself.

  1. Smart move. Maybe her first since the doggie daycare venture.

    Why waste money on a victory party when defeat is imminent. 

  2. Her campaign staff should probably further stipulate that she'll still do interviews, but only with news outlets that don't challenge her on her bullshit.

      1. Let's face it. A big chunk of the current GOP base is not opposed to wife-beating per se provided she did something to provoke it.

        After all, a truly righteous and Christian wife will be submissive (Ephesians 5:22-24) and not upset her man.

        Under His eye.

    1. “Her campaign staff should probably further stipulate that she’ll still do interviews, but only with news outlets that don’t challenge her on her bullshit”

      I hope her staff got paid in advance.

  3. I've never seen this before; certainly not for as high profile a primary as governor. It's as good as a concession. The closest I can remember was Musgrave not showing up at her own party, and slinking off to pout alone.

    1. "The closest I can remember was Musgrave not showing up at her own party, and slinking off to pout alone"

      Wasn't Musty reportedly holed up in a Super Eight motel in Fort Morgan, refusing to concede? She's probably still there.

  4. This is a good indication of the kind of leader should be.  Win or lose she owes the people who worked on her campaign a final hurrah.  This shows an utter lack of appreciation for her staff and cowardice and selfishness that she can't be gracious to people who had the misfortune to believe in her.

  5. heidiforgovernor.com/event/heidiparty22/ is the RSVP site.  Media RSVP is a separate page with a few additional "required" elements.  https://www.heidiforgovernor.com/media-rsvp/
