  • Colorado Poll Has Cory Gardner Trailing By Double Digits In Senate Race

    The hopeful caveat comes right up front: This is a Democratic poll and there’s fully a year to go before Coloradans vote. But the caveat comes with its own caveat. An independent poll of the state conducted by Emerson in August found Gardner trailing John Hickenlooper by a similar margin. Emerson had it 53/40. Today’s Democratic poll has it 53/42. Normally it’d be implausible for any incumbent senator to trail by double digits in a swing state, but … Colorado’s not much of a swing state anymore. It’s blue enough that Hillary managed to win it in 2016 when virtually...

    AURORA, Colorado (CNN) - A Colorado police officer is on administrative leave after shooting an armed man in the buttocks though the window of the man's house, according to the Aurora Police Department. Police went on the night of October 10 to a home to talk with a suspect in an aggravated physical assault case, according to Aurora Police and a probable cause affidavit obtained by CNN affiliate KDVR. When the officers arrived, they say they encountered Andrew Huff, 22, standing next to a truck outside. As officers in uniform approached the house, Huff fled indoors. He then looked out...

    San Francisco expanded its city-funded travel and contracting bans to 22 states with pro-life laws. The 22 states include Texas, Massachusetts, and Florida. The move marks the expansion of an ordinance enacted in August that prohibited city-funded travel "to states that have enacted laws that prohibit abortion prior to the viability of the fetus" and contracting with companies headquartered in those states. The ban initially covered eight states, according to Courthouse News, but that list has now expanded to cover nearly half the country. City supervisor Vallie Brown denounced pro-life reforms, such as late term abortion limits, as "an assault...

    Students on the Auraria campus in Denver say they are concerned about their safety due to a large number of homeless people camping out in buildings on campus, defecating in public areas and sleeping in elevators. The campus -- located immediately southwest of downtown -- is home to the Community College of Denver, the University of Colorado Denver and Metropolitan State University of Denver. Cameron Malby is a senior at CU Denver. He says he's seen arrests and confrontations involving homeless people on campus. "He was just looking for a place to sleep.

    Whites tend to vote Republican, while nonwhites tend to vote Democrat. This proved true in the 2016 election, when Trump carried white voters by 20 percent, while Hillary Clinton won 74 percent of nonwhite voters. With the number of Latinos living in the United States nearly doubling since 2000, it is not difficult to see why Texas could soon follow California, Colorado, and Nevada into the Democratic camp in the next 20 years. Using the 2000 census and the 2010 census along with 2018 data, the electoral reality becomes more clear. The population of those under 18 will be majority...

    President Trump is barreling toward a showdown with Congress over his decision to pull back U.S. troops in northern Syria despite widespread opposition. The announcement, which caught leadership and traditional GOP allies flatfooted, sparked a wave of condemnation, with Republicans calling it a “disaster in the making,” a “catastrophic mistake” and a “terrible decision.” Lawmakers are already weighing how to respond to Trump’s decision, setting the stage for a high-profile clash with Trump as soon as Congress returns from a two-week break on Monday. “Congress must and will act to limit the catastrophic impact of this decision,” said Rep. Liz...

    AURORA • Leading Colorado Republicans and supporters of President Donald Trump braved sub-freezing temperatures Thursday to demand that U.S. Rep. Jason Crow and his fellow House Democrats drop the escalating impeachment inquiry targeting the GOP president. "We know the Republicans are the party of fighters, we are the party that's going to pay attention to the facts — the roaring economy in our nation and here in Colorado," said Kristi Burton Brown, the Colorado Republican Party's vice chair, at a news conference held outside a building that houses Crow's congressional office in Aurora. "We're going to support the president." Burton...

    This November, Proposition CC will ask Colorado voters to permanently lift the spending limits in the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights, but the political stakes embedded in the question are even more consequential. The ballot question represents the most significant overhaul to TABOR since voters approved the constitutional provision in 1992, and serves as a test case for a broader Democratic effort to overhaul how the state levies taxes and spends money. If voters approve Prop. CC, Democratic leaders and their allies believe it would give them momentum for a broader agenda to revamp property tax rates, increase taxes for key...

    The press office for Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, a Democrat, has been trying to get media outlets within the state to remove two stories posted online because they object to the source. Earlier this month, writer Derek Draplin reported that Polis had established a new office—the Office of the Future of Work—to research the state's changing economy and workforce and make policy recommendations to the governor's office. Draplin published the article in The Center Square, a nonprofit media outlet. The factually accurate story (read it here) quotes Polis praising the creation of the office, as well as a Colorado GOP...

    A drag show held for children in Denver on Sunday reportedly attracted dozens of participants despite opposition from “Colorado Proud Boys” members and other protesters. According to The Denver Post, more 100 people attended the “Drag For All Ages” show at the Mile High Comics store as roughly 60 protesters from different groups gathered outside. Some unidentified protesters who said they were aligned with “Antifa” told the newspaper that they decided to demonstrate “because the Proud Boys and Nazis are here.” Others, including an unidentified protester identifying as a Catholic who demonstrated next to a group of Colorado Proud Boys...

    Colorado Democrats want to close the “God gap.” It’s the theory in political science that calling yourself religious and regularly attending services are strong predictors of your political party affiliation, and for the past three decades those voters have largely called themselves Republicans. “We are here today to dispel a myth that somehow right-wing conservatives have a monopoly on faith,” Colorado Democratic Party Chair Morgan Carroll said from behind a podium in Civic Center Park last week. “They do not. Many, many, many Democrats — many people who have been in the party for a long time or who are...
  • This Woman Just Slapped Down Soy Boy Beto's Gun Confiscation Proposal Right Right To His Face

    Not all heroes wear capes. That’s a saying that’s tossed around a lot for feel-good moments. In Colorado, one woman flatly rejected Bob O’Rourke’s proposal to confiscate firearms, telling him to his face that she’s an AR-15 owner and there was no way the government was taking it away from her. The funny thing about Bob is that he thinks his proposal will be successful because Americans would just comply. And this also circles back into the notion that liberals have zero sense of history other than saying that the Founders were evil racists whose statues should be removed and...

    Police had been “working with (Colorado Parks and Wildlife) to track down this fella all morning in the 23500 block of E. Briarwood Dr.,” Aurora police said in a tweet about 10 a.m. Tuesday. As of 11 a.m. the bear had been tracked to the area of Arapahoe Road and E-470. Officer Anthony Camacho, spokesman with the Aurora Police Department, said police stopped monitoring the bear’s location at about 1:30 p.m. “He didn’t commit any crimes, he didn’t steal any picnic baskets or anything so we didn’t apprehend him,” Camacho said. “We decided to just leave it be.” Camacho said...

    DENVER– On July 8, the group “Dismiss Polis” began collecting signatures to recall Colorado Governor Jared Polis. That recall effort officially failed on Friday when the group was unable to come up with enough signatures to force a special election. Governor Polis released the following statement Friday morning: “After all that fuss, I was pleasantly surprised that they didn’t turn in a single signature on the recall. I hope the remaining misguided efforts against others see the same results as Tom Sullivan’s did before. Recalls should not be used for partisan gamesmanship. He also added an update on his upcoming...

    Former governor requested two extensions while running for president John Hickenlooper's exit from the presidential race came on the same day he would have had to file his financial disclosure forms with the Office of Government Ethics. By entering the Colorado U.S. Senate race instead—a job he repeatedly said he did not want and would not be well suited for—the former governor will not have to provide a financial disclosure with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics until May 15, 2020. After formally becoming a presidential candidate on March 4, 2019, Hickenlooper requested two extensions that were granted by the...

    Colorado's experiment with marijuana legalization has been an epic disaster, according to one doctor seeing its effects on the front lines. Dr. Karen Randall, an emergency room physician certified in "cannabis science and medicine," said the legalization of marijuana has damaged, rather than helped, her home state. Randall, who spoke alongside former White House drug czar John Walters at the right-leaning Hudson Institute on Friday, said the public is being misled about the effects of recreational marijuana. "I think the public needs to know that we are not okay," Randall said. "The grand experiment is not going so well. I...
