CO Republicans will back Trump but still aren't endorsing him

Donald Trump.
Donald Trump.

I’ve been searching for a Colorado Republican candidate or elected official who’s endorsed billionaire Donald Trump.

I thought I found my guy in Gerald Eller, a Colorado native and disabled Army veteran, who’s one of the dozen or so Republicans seeking to unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet.

I noticed Eller liked a “Donald Trump Supporters” page on Facebook. But he told me he’s not endorsed Trump.

“I support all of them,” said Eller, when asked about Trump. “I like all the Republican presidential candidates, even the ones who aren’t running anymore.”

So, here in Colorado, the closest we apparently have to an elected Republican who’s endorsed Trump is State Sen. Laura Woods, of Westminster, who told a radio host that her two favorite candidates were Trump and Cruz.

But Woods later she tweeted that she’d decided, for “no specific reason,” that Cruz was her top presidential candidate. She hasn’t explained what made Trump one of her faves previously.

Other Republican candidates in high profile races told the Colorado Statesman last month that they’d back the GOP nominee, including Trump.

Included in the group is Rep. Mike Coffman, who brushed off questions about Trump in December with, “He’s not going to be the nominee.”

  1. Trump will not be the GOP nominee. The only purpose of this is to try and force Republicans to take a stand on Trump when they don't have to. There is exactly ZERO PERCENT chance that Trump comes out of the convention with the nomination.

    1. Did Governor Gessler or Governor Beauprez assure you of that?

      Are you going to try to win the lovely door prize Tim Neville is giving away to one lucky caucus attendee tonight?

    2. After the no-win Drumpfing that Marco Tiny Shiny Boots is taking tonight, don't be surprised to see him go full Fanboy (aka Christie) and beg to plant his lips squarely on His Littleness's pinky ring …

      1. You spoke too soon, Dio. Senator Tiny Shiny Boots was pulling out a win in Minnesota, the state that gave us Tim Pawlenty, Michelle Bachman, Jesse Ventura and the Mary Tyler Moore Show!

         

        1. Minnesota's not a real state …

          … it's just a PHC setting …
