Calling him a "climate champion," the Sierra Club Colorado on Tuesday announced its support for Jason Crow, a Democrat running against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in Colorado's 6th Congressional District — but one of Crow's primary opponents blasted the endorsement as an example of a "rigged system" favoring party insiders.

THEY GRABBED A CLIPBOARD ... It looks like a lot of Coloradans took the advice of a certain soon-to-be-former president. In his farewell address, delivered just over a week before leaving office, President Barack Obama said an oft-quoted line — "If you're disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clipboard, get some signatures, and run for office yourself" — that might have launched a thousand candidacies, including quite a few here in Colorado.

My poor and long-suffering editor here at Colorado Politics is Diligent, Awesome, and Nice, so I call him “Dan.” And poor Dan often has to remind me that the name of the site is “Colorado Politics” and not “DC Politics.” And I really, really do try to write about Colorado. After all, there is lots to write about here in the West. I even got a nice note from a former Colorado governor, telling me he liked one of my columns that talked about, well, Colorado stuff. I should write more about Colorado to make both Dan and any other governors out there, happy.
