Minority Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in House leadership, encouraged Democrat Levi Tillemann to end his primary campaign in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District during a December meeting at a Denver hotel, saying that state and national congressional and party leaders had decided “very early on” to consolidate their resources behind another Democrat, Jason Crow, to run against Republican incumbent Mike Coffman, according to detailed notes Tillemann wrote immediately after the meeting.

Jason Crow, one of three Democrats running for the chance to take on Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in the 6th Congressional District, was one of 11 candidates nationwide named this week to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s "Red to Blue" program, which provides fundraising and organizational support in districts the party organization hopes to flip in next year's midterm election.

End Citizens United, a group dedicated to overturning the decision that opened the floodgates to campaign cash, endorsed Democratic congressional candidate Jason Crow on Thursday. At the same time, Crow pledged he won't accept corporate PAC money in his bid to unseat five-term Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman in the 6th Congressional District.

They're calling it the Stronger States PAC, and when it launches Monday it will be the only national organization of its kind, Palacio told Colorado Politics.

“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.” This, as you may recall, was the slogan of the totalitarian state imagined by George Orwell in 1984, his classic novel. Today, various groups of Islamists — which we can define as those committed to Islamic supremacism — are operationalizing this concept, attempting to alter the historical record in support of their totalitarian ambitions. Six months before the attack of 9/11/01, Taliban leader Mullah Omar ordered the destruction of Afghanistan’s ancient Buddhas of Bamiyan. Why? Because those monumental statues were reminders of a time when the country was not Islamic.
