Rumors that Dan Maes may run for chair of Colorado Republican Party greeted with groans and laughter
When I told this morning's Arapahoe County Republican Men's (and women's) Club breakfast that I've heard rumors that Dan Maes may run for chair of the Colorado Republican Party, there were groans. Then the moderator sarcastically pointed out that the state GOP is responsible for complying with state and federal election laws. That drew laughter because Maes and his family have paid some $17,500 in fines for failing to comply with the state's campaign finance laws' reporting requirements. That Maes may be considering a run for chair was hinted in at the end of his "reflections" on the campaign, which he posted on Facebook this afternoon. If the self pity and nonsense expressed in that rant don't end Maes' political career, I don't know what will. What he and his uncomprehending supporters don't get is that on Nov. 2, some 80% or more of Colorado Republicans and Tea Party sympathizers voted against him.
