A review of campaign contributions made by the National Rifle Association (NRA) shows that the group has given more money to U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora than any other member of Colorado's congressional delegation since 2010. Over the four election cycles won by Coffman, the NRA gave him a total of $33,700.
Over the past few years, one question I have often heard in the 3rd District is: why are the federal departments that have jurisdiction over most Western lands headquartered in Washington, D.C. rather than in Western states? Particularly, why is the Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) headquartered in Washington, when 99 percent of the over 247.3 million acres of public land that the BLM manages is located in the West?
Family Research Council Action, which tracks pro-family and pro-life federal legislation, rated Cory Gardner, Ken Buck, Doug Lamborn, and Scott Tipton with a 100% pro-family rating for the first session of the 115th Congress.
We can build and modernize infrastructure while also keeping environment and public health protections in place. We don’t have to choose one or the other, and that is what @SEEC’s proposal is all about: https://t.co/HGVKmE6tHz
Where is your outrage for Michael Bennet, Jared Polis and Diana DeGette? Tell the entire congressional delegation to do its job — convince colleagues in Congress to change the law. Dems didn’t do it when they had control of Congress and WH. #copoliticshttps://t.co/5TqfIecKk3
Makes-you-wonder-department: Rep. Jim Wilson, Capitol M’s go-to for many things humorous, has struck again. He threatened recently to filibuster bills in the House until he got enough bids for three bags of flour donated by the Colorado Wheat Growers Association earlier in the week. The threat worked. Lawmakers, eager to get out for the […]
The head of Denver police union, Detective Nick Rogers, testified to Congress Thursday about law enforcement issues in a so-called sanctuary city of undocumented immigrants. He was one of a handful of Coloradans in the ring Thursday speaking about the contentious immigration issue, intensified by the Colorado’s purple, swing-state political status. Rep. Ken Buck, R-Windsor, […]
Yes, the winter sport that’s beloved everywhere north of the United States. Only, this time, it was played by two pols in a hallway of the Russell Senate Office Building in the nation’s capital.
We’ll resist the temptation to crack wise about this centuries-old Scottish pastime (or the latter-day Canadians who embrace it with a passion). We’ll just confess some of us at Hot Sheet are mystified by its appeal — even if it is an Olympic sport — and leave it at that.
Instead, let’s note how our two U.S. senators seem to have figured out the antidote to our nation’s acrimonious political climate — and maybe the key to survival in it — is a warm and chummy display of bipartisanship. Certainly, in perennially purple Colorado, where the largest voting bloc is unaffiliated.
The video is a tribute to the ongoing Winter Olympics and the fact that, “Colorado has the most athletes of any state competing in Pyeongchang.” There are plenty of smiles and even a high five between the two officeholders. It all should play well in a swingable bellwether like Jefferson County — even if most of the voters there don’t get curling any more than we do.
Colorado U.S. Sens. Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet introduced immigration legislation Wednesday that includes a path to citizenship for certain young immigrants and funding for President Donald Trump's border wall.
Blame Cory Gardner. Democrats have been doing that for a while, but now U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is down on the senator from Colorado, claiming the fellow Republican is using pot to trip up the Justice Department. On Tuesday Gardner wasn’t backing down. Gardner is blocking Trump nominees over Sessions’ decision in January to […]
