Is Mike Coffman Running for the Senate in 2016? David Balmer thinks so.

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Republican 36

One of the questions that will undoubtedly be asked in 2015 is who will the Republicans nominate for the U.S. Senate nomination in 2016. Perhaps more precisely, who on the Republican bench has the knowledge, experience,fund raising ability and the "fire in their belly" to face office against U.S. Senator Michael Bennet? Many Republican names come to mind, including Congressman Mike Coffman who won an impressive victory in the 6th CD this past November but does the congressman intend to run for the Republican senate nomination? He hasn't said a word about it. No one knows, except perhaps St. Sen. David Balmer. Since the November election, Balmer has been contacting and meeting with business groups and individuals to raise money for his campaign that he hopes will finally launch his congressional career that stalled many years ago when he lost a Republican primary for the U.S. House in North Carolina. The other question is does Congressman Coffman know he is running for the U.S. Senate yet?

  1. Balmer obviously has serious self-interest in seeing Coffman move up the ladder.  But aside from that, Coffman will be pressured to run against Bennet if only out of necessity.  

    Who else could the CO GOP possibly run and make that race competitive?  Scott Tipton?  Buck?  Lamborn?  Wayne Williams?  Cynthia Coffman?  The only other possibility is the term-limited Walker Stapleton and his claim to fame is being a Bush cousin.
