Donald Trump will reach out to “all candidates who were with [Trump] early” Colorado Trump campaign director Patrick Davis told radio listeners Wednesday.

“It’s a brave thing to be a Trump supporter early in Colorado,” Davis told KNUS 710-AM’s Peter Boyles.

One of the first candidates in Colorado to support Trump was State Sen. Laura Woods (R-Westminster/Arvada), who in January called the mogul one of her two favorite presidential picks.

Woods: “My favorites are Ted Cruz and Donald Trump.”

So, based on Davis’ interview, you’d expect the Trump campaign to be reaching out to Woods soon.

Asked by KNUS host Peter Boyles whether Trump would reach out specifically to George Athanasopoulos, who’s challenging U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, Davis said, “Trump and his people will reach out to all candidates like George, who were with him early.”

Athanasopoulos’ positions on a number of issues, as listed on his website, reflect Trump’s to some degree.

On foreign policy, for example, he told me he differs from Trump in that “I would like to see specific objectives, like addressing the threat of ultra-orthodox Islamic terrorist groups.”

But some or the congressional candidate’s positions are even more unorthodox than Trump’s.

He once tweeted, for example, that a father has legal rights to stop an abortion because “that child is of him. It’s part of him.”

“Correct me if I’m wrong,” Athanasopoulos tweeted from his “George for Colorado” Twitter handle, “but men are involved in conceiving children. Therefore, we have rights as fathers.”

    Republicans support Republicans? Scandalous!

      Republicans supporting a conman they all know would be a disastrous President? Fine!

      • FrankUnderwood says:

        Some Republicans supporting the con man, but not all. Another member of the Bush clan has come out in favor of someone other than Drumpf. This time, it's JEB!'s little brother, Marvin, who today endorsed Gary Johnson. Any word on where Walker Stapleton stands?

      . . . guess the GOPers must think about as highly of you, Fluffy, as the rest of us here?!?

    I just thought I'd share this ad from a not-ready-for-prime-time Colorado for Trump website by Jim Sutter, an early supporter with more "passion" than tech savvy.

    The Theodore Roosevelt of our time? Seriously?  The guy who wants to extract energy from  public lands to pay down the debt, leave "a little bit" of the environment for future generations, the guy who tweeted that global warming is a Chinese hoax?

    is like the "Conservation President "who expanded our National Parks System?

    -Uhhh, I thought you self-congratulatory Christians believed in the Virgin birth.
