    Frazier is not at a 40-1 chance to win. He creams the competition so he at least should be the top republican

    • Colorado Pols says:

      But winning the Denver and Douglas straw poll, and a straw poll on a little-read website, means absolutely nothing. Can Frazier raise $1 million in the next 12 months? We think not.

      • Colorado Pols says:

        The voters in these polls aren’t the savviest bunch, because Hillman has said PUBLICLY that he’s not running for office in 2010.  

      • A-bob says:

        We don’t know if he can raise money, but he’ll have a large volunteer team and already has made a base of support. And he also doesn’t have a bad past in elections like Beauprez, known to be a freak on an issue that voters only somethimes care about like Tom and he isn’t Ken Buck.

      In other words, so small, that all this proves is Frazier supporters care more about these silly straw polls.  If this were a completely unbiased, purely random sample of likely primary voters, then it would still have a pretty crappy margin of error.

       IIRC he voted for the Aurora ordinance allowing domestic partners of city employees to get benefits.  I seem to recall that he supports civil unions (a/k/a marriage lite).

      I realize that when it comes to labor issues, only Libertad outdoes Frazier in shilling for Jonathan Coors so he should satisfy the economic conservatives, but the right wingers in El Paso and Mesa Counties will do to hatched job on Frazier just the same.

    • Libertad says:

      There for I said it just for LB.

      If Bennet refuses to shill for Union Bosses by allowing the debate on EFCA to start then they will be really conflicted on what to do with those political contributions generated from forced union dues ….

      How will Unions Bosses financially support someone who is against EFCA and crushes the CEA at the bargaining table?

      • redstateblues says:

        Colorado voters said no on 47. You, Jonathan, Jonathan’s dog that you walk, and Ryan Frazier, all lost on that measure.

        Give it a rest already.

        • Libertad says:

          As to Bennet … like I said before, how will unions financially support someone who is against EFCA and crushed the CEA at the bargaining table?

          • redstateblues says:

            but I guess in Elmos’s Libertad’s World, everyone is a corrupt union boss or business-government coalition or whatever.

            And Bennet hasn’t stated a position on EFCA, so you can’t really say he’s against it. Not that it matters since it’s dead until next year.

            You really should take a vacation or something, you’re running out of legislation to support/oppose.
