Meet Sen. Ted Harvey, The Face of “Stop Hillary PAC”

Sen. Ted Harvey (R-Highlands Ranch).

FOX 31's Eli Stokols:

The ‘Stop Hillary PAC’, a group that was quietly incorporated in May, announced its leadership team on Monday.

[Sen. Ted] Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, is serving as the group’s “honorary chairman”, he told FOX31 Denver on Monday.

“My role is to talk to the media and help the entity as much as I possibly can,” he said. “It’s a very organic group of political campaign activists that have come together from across the country to help steer this entity to raise money and confront a potential Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Sen. Ted Harvey of Highlands Ranch seems like an odd choice as the public face to "confront a potential Hillary Clinton campaign," being a relatively obscure state senator whose newsworthiness tends to consist of his embrace of chain-letter conspiracy theories, and speculation over whether he carries a gun during legislative hearings (answer: usually). It's possible his job is strictly to respond in Colorado? Either way, Stokols makes sure to note that this is not the big-ticket anti-Hillary PAC being organized by former Mitt Romney 2012 campaign operatives. The "Stop Hillary PAC" is more, interpret this however you want, grass-rootsy, and according to Stokols "plans to attack Clinton with web ads, online videos and, perhaps, by confronting her at public appearances."

So maybe it will be Harvey "confronting" Hillary Clinton personally? We would honestly like to see how that ends.

    I'm sure "have Colorado GOP official head group dedicated to personally attacking a woman well over a year before she declares her candidacy," was at the top of the party's outreach strategy for women. First fundraiser to be hosted by the Colorado Women's Alliance, no doubt.

      Not only that, but they picked the ugliest, baldest, most pasty faced male Senator in our legislature to do it. I don't know who Ted Harvey is hoping to win over but it's not gonna be women…

    Boy, if he's packing heat and tries to get within 6 feet of her, the Secret Service takedown of dear old Ted would be worth the price of admission.

    That the Collaborationist Party might actually nominate Hillary Clinton is a measure of its incompetence and ideological bankruptcy — we cannot afford another Clinton any more than we could another Bush.  It is long past time for Americans to choose alternatives to the two criminal political organizations which over the past thirty years turned the supposed "land of the free" into the world's leading jailer and now conspire to subvert the Constitution.

    • Curmudgeon says:

      Show me an alternative that's not batshit crazy, racist, or a phony third party working for one of the other two, and you have a deal.

      Ummm, I can afford another Clinton.  Our small business has never again made as much as it did during the Clinton years.  I'd love to be paying Clinton era tax rates as long as they came with our Clinton era income. Since then our biggest tax cut has come from being a whole lot poorer so … not as much fun as tax cuts are supposed to be. We went from using at least half a dozen subcontrators regularly and more at the busiest times to using between one and three part of the time and none some of the time.  So much for tax cuts leading to jobs, jobs, jobs and terrific economic growth.

      As for the country as a whole, the deficit disappeared. We were engaged in no major, long lasting military adventures.  On the adminstration's way out they quite emphatically tried to warn the Cheney/Bush folks about imminent threats but were brushed off. True, all the continuing financial deregulation of the Clinton era led to pretty awful consequences but the GOP just wants more of that, the Clintons are kind of chastened on that score and we aren't going to be electing anybodu but Rs and Ds to anything major any time soon.

      I'm more than willing to give HRC a go.  Of course she won't have the relatively sane GOP congressional opposition that Bill had.  In between stuff like the blue dress nonsense they did make some deals and get some stuff done. Now we have a GOP that we can only hope will destroy itself ASAP and make room for a better version.  As for the other stuff you mention, you just go ahead and vote third party spoiler and see where that gets you.

      Is this the new flavor of concern troll or what?

      • BlueCat says:

        Probably just another grimly humorless member of one of those self righteous parties with words like "constitutional" or "libertarian" or "patriot" or 'tea" in the name.

        • bullshit! says:

          I would like to know who he thinks Dems are "collaborating" with.

          • langelomisterioso says:

            That might be mildly interesting,but I suspect it's just another of those words like Communist, Socialist,Marxist wingers throw outthere because it sounds bad and might frighten someone. I've yet to meet a winger who actually knows what Communist, Socialist, or Marxist actually means. Probably an attempt to Chamberlinize the discussion preemptively ultimately to Godwinize conversation .Sounds Luntzish to me.
