BREAKING: Ted Harvey New Exec. Director of Colorado GOP

  • by: Colorado Pols
Former Sen. Ted Harvey (R).
Former Sen. Ted Harvey (R-Douglas County) will be the new Executive Director of the State Republican Party.

Colorado Republicans today selected former Adams County Republican Party Chair Steve House to replace Ryan Call as State Republican Party Chair (this outcome was first predicted by Colorado Pols on Thursday).

As part of the State Party reorganization, Republicans intend to change their bylaws so that Party Chair is no longer a full-time salaried position (which was how the GOP used to operate before making the Dick Wadhams exception last decade). This means that the top full-time job with the Republican Party will revert back to the role of Executive Director…which is apparently going to be filled by former State Sen. Ted Harvey.

Harvey has been telling folks at today’s Republican reorganization meeting that he will assume the role of Executive Director as soon as Monday. Harvey is an interesting choice, to say the least; he is a somewhat polarizing figure among Republicans who has been recently working to raise money for the controversial “Scam PAC” Stop Hillary PAC. We’ll have more to say about that in the coming days.

We’ll update as we learn more, but as always, you heard it here first.

        1. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “the inmates are running the asylum.”  Having Harvey as the ED is like taking the guy about whom even all the crazy people say,”damn, that dude’s nuts” and putting him in charge.

    1. Absolutely. Isn’t this the guy who finished 3rd or 4th (in a four-person race) against Mike Coffman for the GOP nod in CD 6?

      Why can’t they get Wadhams to come back and run the show?

  1. Looking in from outside, this seems like a pragmatic decision. They chose the guy who’s really good at raising money (even if he keeps most of it), by any means necessary, over the ideologically pure guy.

    Personally, I think the any-means-necessary guy may cost the GOP more in legal fees than they would gain in revenues, but hey. there’s plenty of popcorn for all.

  2. Breaking news?  Breaking news is that michael bennet sign on with bob corker to require senate approval of any Iran deal. 

    I cannot describe how angry this makes me.   I’ll say this: I will vote for a republican before I vote for any ticket that has Bennet’s name on it.  At least the republicans have the guts to stand up for what they believe.  And I guess Bennet does too now that I think about it, but I he’s on the wrong side of the aisle.

      1. Not that.  This thing.

        Even if the deal isn’t formalized into a treaty, which the Senate must advise and consent to, the Senate (including these rebellious Dems) wants to be able to scuttle it.  Senator Bennet felt signing on wasn’t enough and became a cosponsor.  Because that’s how he do, I guess.

        It will be interesting to see what Congress does when every other country lifts sanctions on Iran and ours become relatively meaningless.

        1. So Congress refuses to debate whether to grant the President War Powers. Won’t touch it with a 10-foot pole – putting specific war powers in writing would limit the grandstanding and chickenhawk parade opportunities, as well as allow them to keep squawking about “overreach”, while they resolutely fail to grasp what is offered to them within their own reach.

          Yet they want to have review powers over any nuclear deal, and keep sanctions on Iran. Why? Distrust of Obama? Do they imagine that they understand the energy and military poltics of Iran better than the negotiators? Actual genuine support for the pro-Democracy movement in Iran?

          They should just allow the negotiations to continue. If a deal is reached, then is the time to critique that deal, refuse to advise and consent, etc.

          I’m baffled by this.

          Someone please explain to me WTF is in this for Bennet.

    1. CDW – Bennet blows on a lot of issues but he is fine on a lot of others.  I would think that since the Senate has to ratify any treaty so it seems like a no brainer that they be involved in any final deal with Iran and the other nations (Germany, France, Russia and China). 

      1. Actually not so. The deal itself is a UN Nuclear Anti-proliferation agreement – it’s with the UN, not with the US.

        The US Congress obviously has a part to play, in that we have Congressionally passed sanctions. But as I understand it, the President has enough authority to fulfil our end of a deal for a number of years before requiring Congressional action to loosen the sanctions.

      1. He launched his re-election campaign as a Democrat so I would tend to say probably not.  Republicans should be licking their chops at having a go at him.  Will be interesting to see who they end up running against him.
