Left attacks CD-4 conservative; hopes to help Betsy Markey beat Cory Gardner
When conservatives in Colorado's 4th congressional district learn that the Left has been playing them for fools, there will be a backlash. Bob Moore reports that the Colorado Democratic Party and a secretive left-wing group have been running ads against an American Constitution Party candidate, Doug Aden. Their strategy is to raise Aden's profile among conservatives so that he can take votes away from Republican Cory Gardner. They hope to divide conservative voters so that their Nancy Pelosi Democrat, Besty Markey, can be re-elected. Some call this dirty politics. I call it dumb politics, because there is plenty of time for the word to get out and defeat the gambit. And I call it desperate politics, because even the National Democratic Congressional Committee has decided to not waste money on Markey. She's a sure loser. LINK: Democratic groups spend more than $300,000 attacking Doug Aden, by Bob Moore. He does some great reporting.
