Votes by U.S. Rep. John Salazar. D-Colo., on health care and the stimulus bill will get plenty of attention in the coming weeks from a squad of Grand Valley activists backed up by advertising critical of Salazar’s record.

Americans for Prosperity, a non-partisan, free-enterprise, free-market organization, organized the meeting of about 80 people in the Museum of Western Colorado’s Whitman Educational Center to show them how to conduct phone banks and walk precincts in the coming weeks.

The idea, Colorado Americans for Prosperity head Jeff Crank said, “is to simply educate people about John Salazar and show how he’s voted on these spending issues. John Salazar has voted to bankrupt America.”

Americans For Prosperity is working to replicate the 2008 success of President Barack Obama in recruiting and rallying a corps of volunteers in his campaign for the presidency, Crank said.

“We want to replace the Obama model” with a free-market corps of volunteers that will remain active after the election is over.

I had hoped that Jeff Crank would be Congressman, but it didn’t work out that way.

Crank didn’t run against Salazar. He had that nasty grudge match going against Doug Lamborn that might’ve cost us a 6th House seat in the state.
