It's All About the Fish, Man

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

If Sen. Wayne Allard runs for re-election – and nobody really expects that he will – it will be all about the fish. As The Denver Post reports, Allard still isn’t saying if he’s going to give it another go:

U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard won’t yet answer the biggest question in Colorado politics: whether he ll seek a third term in 2008. But he offers an interesting hint of how he d campaign.

Asked what he has accomplished in a decade in the Senate, Allard doesn t talk first about how he led the attempt to ban same-sex marriage, or how he pushed for billions of dollars for research into a missile-defense system, or how he pressed to improve the U.S. Air Force Academy s handling of sex-assault accusations.

He wants people to know he protected endangered fish.

“When I first got into politics, I never knew that I would be in a position to get that much accomplished as far as improving the environment,” he said.

  1. the article was badly written, but the staffer scuttlebut on Wayne is pretty much right on.  very much like Gordon Smith (OR), who also does a little as he possibly can except for jumping on to other people’s bills.  nice guy, very nice to the other staffers even on the other side, but pretty empty.
