UPDATE: Well-known conservative commentator Erick Ericsson throws his hat in the ring for Glenn as well.
El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn certainly appears to have the momentum in the Republican U.S. Senate race as we enter the final weekend before the Primary Election.
Glenn already has the support of the staunch right-wing conservative group Senate Conservatives Fund — an organization that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell regularly trashes — and today FreedomWorks PAC announced that they are jumping aboard the Glenn bandwagon. From a press release:
“Darryl Glenn will fight for economic freedom and constitutionally limited government. He has the enthusiastic support of the grassroots in Colorado because they can count on him to stand on principle,” said FreedomWorks PAC Chairman Adam Brandon. “We need more people in Washington willing to boldly take on the establishment and fight for limited government. That’s what Darryl Glenn will do, and we encourage Colorado primary voters to support him.”
The FreedomWorks PAC endorsement of Glenn comes pretty late in the game, but nevertheless with enough time to potentially make a difference in a five-way Republican Primary. Ballot return numbers are sitting at 20% as of this morning, which means plenty of potential GOP voters are still making up their mind about the field hoping to challenge incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet in November.
