Interview with Bennet’s wife, environmental public interest attorney, Susan Daggett

They say all politics is local (well Tip O’Neil said that) so I thought I would take this post to talk about the governors race here is the great state of Colorado. For those of you who don’t live in the Centennial State we have a mildly interesting state of affairs. Our Democratic Governor decided this winter that he would not run for a second term. Colorado has term limits so this would have been his final term in any case but the polling did not look good for Gov. Ritter so he decided that he would not contest the election.
In one way this is good thing. He had made several decisions that had alienated him from his base; failing to side with unionized grocery workers; the nearly inexplicable appointment of political novice Michael Bennet to the United States Senate; these kinds of things were going to make for tough sledding in a state where you must carry your base if you have a prayer of living in the Governors Mansion.

In Colorado the Mayor of Denver John Hickenlooper narrowly leads former Rep. Scott McInnis in the new Rasmussen Reports poll. Hickenlooper has stepped up as the Democratic candidate after current Gov. Bill Ritter announced that he would not run for re-election.
