Breitbart should state that Woods likes Trump, making her involvement in pro-Cruz shenanigans unlikely

Breitbart’s Julie Hahn reports that four Colorado lawmakers, who are members of Ted Cruz’s “Colorado Leadership Team, voted against a 2015 bill that would have created a presidential primary in Colorado.

Trump has said the absence of a primary or caucus vote helped Cruz trounce Trump in the race for Colorado delegates. And Hahn’s story implies that Cruz supporters in Colorado’s legislature might have been working to squash Trump as early as last year, when they voted against a bill establishing open primary that might have benefited Trump.

“Social media posts, along with Cruz’s campaign website, reveal that Sen. Ted Cruz supporters in the Colorado Republican Party were responsible for crushing an effort to give Colorado the ability to vote in a state primary…The four Republicans who voted against the initiative were Sen. Kevin Grantham, Sen. Kent Lambert, Sen. Laura Woods, and Sen. Jerry Sonnenberg.”

The trouble with this conspiracy theory is that Woods is actually factually on record as saying Trump is one of her top two favorite presidential candidates. As such, Woods is the only elected official in the state to affirmatively say she likes Trump.

Woods “narrowed the field” after watching the GOP prez debate in Boulder, and she concluded that her “favorites are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump” (here at 25 min, 50 seconds).

Later, Woods “liked” a Facebook post by The Conservative Update, which stated:

‘Like’ if you would vote for Donald Trump if he were the 2016 GOP nominee.

So if Woods was secretly in the tank for Cruz last year, when she voted against the presidential-primary bill, she, at a minimum, had a change of heart after being wowed by Trump at the Boulder GOP debate. But, more likely, she voted against the prez-primary bill for other reasons.

In any case, Hahn should update her post with the fact that Woods praised Trump and said he was one of her favorite candidaates along with Cruz, before she jumped on the Cruz boat.

        1.  I think what he means to say is that Pols must think that she is a formidable political force, and, therefore, is trying to weaken her by running attack stories…is that about right, Moldy? Do you realize just how stupid that sounds? 

        1. Whatever makes you feel better. Lord knows things have been very tough for you for many months now. The whole Call coup/failed House counter coup (the latter by the same people responsible for the former, an interesting twist) fiasco. Your party's serial melt downs at state and national level. Your first, second and third choice presidential candidates going poof. Trump being your party's front runner, sure to blow up your party one way or the other. Damned if he's their nominee, damned if he's not. A clown car load of potential opponents for Bennet, none of them likely to give him too much trouble, one with less name rec than the next, and Bennet with that huge war chest of his. He's already got a really nicely done ad up and enough money to keep them coming. 

          Do yourself a favor, take a week off, head for a beach and kick back with a cooler full of adult beverages. And, yes, tell yourself that Laura has Dems shaking in their boots. Perhaps a litle yoga, some meditation…. recreational drugs?

          1. Hush, dammnit.   Stick to the line:   YOU'RE RIGHT MODDY, WE CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT WE'RE SO SCARED OF WOODSIE.  Please,please, don't run her for governor.   We'd lose so bad…
