Eidsness Official Tomorrow

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

As the Fort Collins Coloradoan reports:

Former Republican-turned-Reformer-turned-Democrat Eric Eidsness said he will announce his congressional campaign to unseat U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave on Wednesday morning at the Greeley Democratic Party headquarters.

The long-expected announcement will pit Eidsness against fellow Fort Collins Democrats Betsy Markey and Angie Paccione in a three-way primary.

In 2006, Eidsness ran against Musgrave and Paccione as a Reform Party candidate, garnering 11 percent of the vote in an election in which incumbent Musgrave edged out Paccione by less than 3 percentage points.

“Fort Collins gets a great deal of attention because there are three candidates here,” Eidsness said. “I know, as well as other people around here, that it’s a big world out there and there certainly are different points of view (in Greeley) than there are here in Fort Collins. I can relate to those values and wanted to make my announcement there.”

Paccione’s campaign said it’s happy to see Eidsness, who many have blamed for her narrow loss to Musgrave in 2006, enter the race…

  1. Having Eidsness stick in the Democratic Party system means he (hopefully) won’t be running around outside of it throwing bombs.  Unless he pulls a Lieberman, anyway…

    If the debate remains civil, this could be the positive image-builder that each of the candidates needs to offset the Musgrave smear machine.

        1. Mostly because as a Democrat he’s resigned to obscurity.  Not because of Democrats, but he’s switched around so much that when he gets cold dissed by the Dems in the primary he won’t have any other place to go, and he’ll fade away….
