  • Coors, Shanahan to host Donald Trump fundraiser in Colorado

    Pete Coors and Mike Shanahan, a pair of giants in Colorado beer and football, are two of several boldfaced names planning a Friday fundraiser for Donald Trump to coincide with the Republican candidate’s visit to the state that day for the Western Conservative Summit. While the names on the host committee may suggest a Sunday-tailgate kind of affair — Coors is a longtime beer executive and Shanahan used to coach the Denver Broncos — the entry fee to the presidential fundraiser is decidedly more expensive than what one would find in the parking lot of Mile High stadium. It’s at...

    DENVER (AP) - Beer baron Peter Coors' driver's license has been revoked by a hearing officer who ruled the executive had been driving under the influence of alcohol, officials said. Hearing officer Scott Garber ruled Friday that Coors did not stop at a stop sign on May 28 and was driving intoxicated.

    Beer magnate and former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pete Coors was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and is due to appear in court on the charges next Thursday. A Colorado State Patrol trooper pulled Coors over after he saw him run a stop sign around the corner from his home in Golden about 11:25 p.m. on May 28. Coors stopped in his driveway and consented to take a Breathalyzer test. He registered a .088, which is slightly above the .08 legal blood-alcohol limit in Colorado. He was driving a 2004 green Jaguar, court records show. Coors spokeswoman...
  • Is Ken Salazar Colorado's Charlie Rangel?

    Well, it's become quite apparent that U.S. Senator Ken Salazar (D-CO) is quickly making a name for himself among the ranks of the slandering, sensationalizing far left. Since I live in Colorado, covered the primaries and election that put Salazar into office, and know some of the principals personally, I thought my take might shed some light onto the underpinnings of this bizarre phenomenon. First, on April 25, 2005, Senator Ken Salazar (affectionately known as "Gollum" by Colorado conservatives) commented that Focus on the Family (FOTF), the organization founded by Dr. James Dobson, has relentlessly and unfairly attacked him. In...

    Democratic senatorial candidate Ken Salazar would significantly boost his "moderate" credentials by easing up on the class warfare rhetoric and focusing on issues. Sure, we all feel safer knowing that Salazar is fighting for Colorado's land, water and (last of all) people. But the economy isn't as simplistic as a slogan, and calling on the rich to pay for it all is not a practical solution. Cody Wertz, Salazar's press secretary, posits that Republicans and President Bush are the ones ruining the economy by "not being up front about the cost of Iraq" and by wanting "to cut taxes and...

    The premiere election to watch today is the GOP US Senate primary in Colorado. The two major contestants are Pete Coors and former US Rep Bob Schaffer. By most accounts, it has been a hard-fought race and it appears as though it will go down to the wire. The winner will face state Atty Genl Ken Salazar. In CD-3, there is a multi-candidate GOP primary for the seat being vacated by Rep Scott McInnis. In Georgia, there are two run-off elections, one for the seat being vacated by Johnny Isakson and the other being vacated by Mac Collins. In the...

    Pete Coors, who is aggressively courting conservative Republicans in his Senate bid, says the brewery he ran for years is changing its health plans so they no longer cover abortion. Coors last week told a conservative activist who questioned him on his company's coverage of abortion that he was surprised to learn his company covered abortions and that it is now being stopped. "We're revising our health care plans right now for the fall when people have to sign up again. It will not be in there," Coors said in a tape- recorded exchange with the activist. Attempts to reach...

    U.S. Senate hopeful Bob Schaffer charged opponent Pete Coors, the brewery titan who has contributed to hundreds of campaigns during the years, with supporting congressional candidates who opposed gun rights. Schaffer, a former congressman from Larimer County, and Coors are vying for the GOP nod to replace Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell, who is stepping down after two terms for health reasons. The attack on Coors came Thursday at a candidates forum hosted by the Pikes Peak Firearms Coalition at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4051 on Pikes Peak Avenue. The forum mostly focused on gun issues, an area on...

    Two years ago, back when Pete Coors was just another Colorado Republican, he attacked the Democratic Party in an exchange of e-mails. Now he's a U.S. Senate candidate who's talking about bringing people together. A Democratic organization is posting those missives online under the headline "Peter Coors - Bitter Beer Man" in an attempt to show that the brewery heir is more conservative than he or his supporters would have Colorado believe. The e-mails were written by Coors and Jim Gibson, director of the Colorado Democratic Leadership Council, after Gibson posted what he believes was a nonpartisan message on the...

    DENVER (AP) - Democrats are furious about a statement by Republicans saying that comparing one of their candidates to presidential candidate John Kerry would be worse than comparing someone to the Ku Klux Klan. The dispute started when The New York Times inadvertently published a photo of Republican Senate candidate Pete Coors above a story about a KKK member who murdered a black sharecropper. The Times published a correction Saturday. Cinamon Watson, spokeswoman for Coors, said the error was "so outrageous it's kind of funny. It could have been worse. Pete could have been identified as John Kerry." Chris Gates,...

    Pete Coors has never held public office, but he and his family have influenced Colorado and national politics for decades - with money. The clan of brewing barons has gained a reputation as one of America's strongest supporters of conservative causes. A Rocky Mountain News analysis of Coors political contributions through time shows that status is well-earned. Millions of family dollars have flowed to Republican candidates and conservative groups in the past 30 years, starting with the formation of the Heritage Foundation think tank in 1973. Included are $1.8 million in federal donations since 1979 and another $625,000 in Colorado...
