TUESDAY UPDATE: This episode of the Get More Smarter Show makes some local news, via Ernest Luning:
Republican gubernatorial candiate Victor Mitchell says he’s often called the “nice Donald Trump” in a video interview posted online Monday, but also says he’ll decline to campaign with Trump in Colorado if he wins the GOP nomination next year.
“No,” Mitchell tells host Jason Bane of the Colorado Pols political website. “No thanks. Donald Trump and I agree on many issues, but his style and temperament are different than mine. At the end of the day, I really love Colorado, and I think it would be insincere to have him come out and campaign for me. I’d want to put Colorado first on everything I do.”
Earlier in the episode of the website’s “Get More Smarter Show,” Mitchell acknowledges it could be an issue for some GOP primary voters that he voted for independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin last year instead of casting a ballot for Trump but suggests it won’t be consequential.
“The Republican primary voters still like Donald Trump,” Mitchell says about 15 minutes into the 25-minute interview. “I get called all the time a ‘nice Donald Trump.’”
Today on the Get More Smarter Show: HISTORY IS MADE with our first-ever interview with a Republican gubernatorial candidate, entrepreneur and former state Rep. Victor Mitchell! Jason Bane and Mitchell talk about Mitchell’s background, why he’s running for governor, and why people call him a “nice Donald Trump“–even though he says he won’t campaign with Trump as the GOP nominee.
We apologize for the overexposed video, it was our first use of a new camera and…well, we’re a blog, not CNN.
