Jeff Crank’s campaign in Colorado’s 5th receives word that people are disgusted with the slanders directed at him, and they are blaming his opponent, Doug Lamborn. When your supporters denounce your tactics, it is news. Read “Confession of a former Lamborn supporter.” The first and last graphs:
Based on a recent mailing from none other than the Christian Coalition of Colorado, which I was somewhat embarrassed to have my teenage son carry in from the mailbox, I feel I must make a public confession of a poor choice, a bad decision and yes, poor judgment. You see, for more than a decade I have supported and voted for Doug Lamborn, but as of this week all that will change.
While I would not presume to tell you who to vote for, I would ask you to not reward the gutter politics of the Lamborn campaign and vote for one of the other candidates in this race. As for me and my wife, we have chosen Jeff Crank, a man who is well qualified, highly experienced and we believe has the character and temperament to serve our community well in Congress. In addition to our vote, we have sent a donation to help him respond to the vile and unfounded accusations that have been leveled against him. Please pick a candidate that you can support and do the same.
Candidates can’t get away with unfounded slimings of their opponents anymore thanks largely to the blogs. Watch for more negative reactions to Lamborn and the “Christian Coalition of Colorado.”
