No Surprise: Elway Rules Out Senate Run

  • 11 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

You already knew this, because Colorado Pols reported yesterday that former Broncos quarterback John Elway is being groomed to run for governor. Nevertheless, here’s the story:

Former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway has ruled out a run for the U.S. senate seat being vacated by Wayne Allard.
Elway spoke this morning with 850-AM KOA’s Steffan Tubbs and April Zesbaugh.

“I’m always surprised my name comes up every time,” Elway said. “I have no intention of running.”

Elway, a Republican, said he is flattered to be considered, but the “job is not my cup of tea.”

“I have no intention now, but it’s always intriguing when my name comes up,” he said.

Elway said he looked at the job and what it does to a candidate’s family and wants no part of it – for the time being.

  1. The much loved sports legend would be smeared into a corrupt/evil and/or brainless/joke politician with a (relatively) tiny paycheck to show for it.  Stay out John, stay out!

  2. Car dealerships, restaurants, state government?

    Running a disciplined offense and running the state ain’t the same thing.  Other celebrity politicians seem to have always been much more involved than Elway, though I don’t know much about what he does politically.

    Stick with the steakhouse and thanks for the memories.

  3. because he is a wife beater.  It is in his divorce records and he knows it.  I posted this earlier but my posting seems to have vanished…  didn’t realize pols had such a stack in protecting the Elway name.

    1. Its not about the Elway name.  It’s about smearing someone, ANYONE, without a shred of evidence.  Got any proof, show it. Otherwise keep it shut.

    2. but if it is in divorce papers, it’s an allegation, not a fact.  Unless his divorce records reflect he admitted to beating his wife, I’d say your evidence is scant.
