One again there is more proof that this election is going to be played by Tea Party rules. America has adopted the Tea party Contract for America and seems to be running with it. Tea Party candidate Ken Buck a Weld County prosecutor has defeated former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton to clinch Colorado’s Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate. The Tuesday vote proves that politicians with close connections to Washington are an endangered species. Lt. Gov. Jane Norton had been endorsed by GOP leaders and she co-chaired John McCain’s presidential campaign in Colorado. We are not sure calling her a Washington insider is fair as she has never been in Washington. The bottom line is this is guilt by association. On the democrat side, they clearly did not get the memo from the nation as they sent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet even though his primary challengers tried a relentless anti-establishment assault. In fairness to Bennet he was only appointed last year after predecessor Ken Salazar became Interior Secretary. This is the match up and it appears to be a good one as Weld County prosecutor Republican Tea Party candidate Ken Buck versus former superintendent of Denver Public Schools appointed Senator Michael Bennet in November.
