BREAKING: Darryl Glenn In “Virtual Tie” With Michael Bennet*

Darryl Glenn.

Darryl Glenn.

That’s in a fundraising email from GOP U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn’s campaign this afternoon–and as you all know, fundraising emails never lie:

My liberal opponent, Senator Michael Bennet, thinks he’s too good for you. Typical Washington insider.

That’s why he spends a lot of his time in DC, not Colorado. That’s why he’s pulled out of or declined at least SIX invitations to appear with me, one-on-one, in the last month alone.

What he doesn’t understand is that this election is for the people- not for himself. Like I said: Typical Washington insider.

But the thing is I can’t really blame the guy. Because with less than 29 DAYS to go before Election 2016, I’m polling in a virtual tie with Michael Bennet. And right now, he’s scared. [Pols emphasis]

A “virtual tie!” That is shocking news for this race–so shocking that we resisted checking the facts to make sure it’s right. But after a few minutes of telling everyone who would listen about this dramatic turn in the Colorado U.S. Senate race, we figured it would be a good idea to make sure there’s some truth to it.


That’s odd–Real Clear Politics’ average of polls has Michael Bennet leading Darryl Glenn by an average of 11.3%? In fact, according to RCP there has only been one poll of this race inside the margin of error since July?

We were really excited for Glenn for a moment there, but unless his campaign can produce a poll that actually shows him in a “virtual tie,” or for that matter anything other than polls showing him getting his ass kicked by a lopsided margin, we’re going to have to conclude, as much as we want to believe it, that this claim from Darryl Glenn to be in a “virtual tie” with Michael Bennet is factually deficient. Or, perhaps Glenn misspoke and meant to say that he and Bennet both “wear ties” sometimes.

*Never mind, we can’t do this with a straight face. It’s a goddamn joke.

    Who the hell did Glenn send this to? Obviously no one who has ever reason about this race.

    What a headline on the thread. Probably the only time you'll ever get smiles on the faces of Zappatero and Moderatus at the same time.

    You guys, and Bennet, should all be kicking Mitch McConnell's ass while you're at it, that is, unless you want to be all Bipartisanshippy and stuff after the election.

    I thought Glenn was a Christian. Isn't there something in their book about telling lies?
