Two years ago this week, Colorado progressives watched in horror as a minority of American voters elected Donald Trump to be our next President.
In the last week, we’ve witnessed horrible acts of political violence and intimidation across the nation. Bombs mailed to former Presidents and other critics of Donald Trump, a racially-motivated random shooting in Kentucky, and then the unthinkable killing of 11 people attending services at a Pittsburgh synagogue this past weekend. My grandparents survived the holocaust. They told me it wasn’t a matter of “if” anti-Semitism reared its ugly head in America once again, but when. They were unfortunately right.
After nearly two years of resistance to the disastrous takeover of the federal government by Donald Trump and his disreputable enablers in the Republican Party, the time has finally come to strike back at the polls. In 2016, we saw what happens when progressives fail to take an election seriously, and let the perfect become the enemy of the good.
After almost two years of organizing to fight back against President Trump and the far right from Washington, D.C. to Denver, the 2018 midterms are finally here! Mail ballots go out to Colorado voters this week, and the whole world is watching to see how our state and nation will take action to reverse the damage done by Trump and his enablers since the unthinkable happened in 2016. This is the moment we’ve been working toward.
This past weekend was another terrible lesson that elections matter.
It’s a familiar sight after almost two years of Trump: crowds of protesters in front of Sen. Cory Gardner’s office. It’s happening almost every day now, as the battle over the nomination of accused rapist Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court grinds on.
Once again, Colorado is ground zero in a U.S. Supreme Court confirmation battle.
A new poll from the New York Times confirms what many of you already know: this year, Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora is in serious trouble.  After years of running away from his far-right record, reality may finally be catching up with “Teflon Mike.”
