Arapahoe County DA George Brauchler.

Asked by Associated Press reporter Nicholas Riccardi in September to answer questions about Colorado political issues, Brauchler said: “I’d be happy to answer those things if I got into the Senate” contest.

But over the weekend, Brauchler jumped on conservative talk radio and openly talked about Colorado politics, attacking Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet repeatedly on multiple issues.

Appearing on KNUS 710-AM’s Jimmy Sengenberger show Sept. 19, Brauchler said it was “infuriating” that Bennet supported the “ridiculous” Iran nuclear deal. On the radio, Brauchler equated peopole who urged him to accept a plea deal with Holmes to those who favored  the Iran deal.

Brauchler criticized Obamacare as hurting small business, and he also said the Dodd-Frank law was an “horrific compromise that took place during the economic downturn.”

Calling himself a “simple kid from Lakewood” and sounding like a candidate, Brauchler said the federal government has gotten to big too fast during the years that Bennet has been in office.

The lessen for reporters: when Brauchler says he’ll talk politics later, ask him the questions again, but do it on conservative talk radio.

    I've never understood why this doesn't piss off legit reporters more. It's like Brauchler is lying to them, then laughing at them by going on rightie radio.

    I would call them on it myself, but then again I'm not the Stockholm Syndrome media.

      Why don't they just run the audio clips the way MSNBC used to run Limbaugh clips before his audience started dying off and everybody stopped caring what that blowhard said? They could introduce them by saying "When we asked Brauchler about (whatever) he refused to answer, saying he'd talk about those things if he gets into the Senate race, but he was happy to talk about it on KNUS radio.
