The political mud slinging in the governor’s race started well before Bill Ritter made the decision to not seek reelection because he knew he was going to have to make some very unpopular decisions in the next year…especially in this time of fiscal crisis. Candidates from the Right and Left are willing to say anything to get Your vote.
The same goes for candidates seeking to represent Colorado in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.
As a writer for The Watch Newspaper, my email in-box is inundated with political press releases from all candidates seeking victories next November. Some of these press releases are informative and some are really dumb. Some will make you laugh and some will have you shaking your head in disbelief.
Being a small regional newspaper, The Watch has never had the space to run each and every one of these political press releases and this blog is my attempt to get those press releases out to the public in their original form, complete with spelling errors, false statements and the like.
It is my hope that you will read these press releases (as blog posts here) and will become a part of the political conversation in this upcoming election. I will post political releases when I get them and as often as I can.
What candidates say in front of TV cameras and microphones may not always be the same thing their press people are saying. Feel free to leave comments and keep me posted on any suggestions for improving this blog. Without anything further, I will begin the posting.
