True, CO went for Biden, but I was expecting that AND expected the vote for the POS/nobody to be HUGE (the cliche "landslide" comes to mind, if you will) compared to the number of votes for Trump.
But it WASN'T any landslide, far from it...was a lot closer than I expected, which I found encouraging for CO, as it suggests there are still a whole lot of "red people" here, in the city where I am (Colorado Springs) and most fo the counties in CO. Not to mention the huge number of pro-gun people here (citizens AND most county sheriffs have been that way for years).
And the "close" vote was also surprising given COS is regularly out-numbered/out-voted by the huge number of liberals infesting the other 3 major cities of CO -- Boulder, Denver and Pueblo.
The main disappointment for me -- looking at how Colorado Springs voted even though it clearly went Trump (as expected) -- was the more-than-expected votes for POS Biden as I had guessed COS was about 60% conservative & 40% liberals ("as it "leans" Republican), so I expected to see way LESS votes for the fool.
Whatever, given all that, I don't know what to predict re: where CO is headed (blue/red or a purple stalemate) in the near future.
At least "we" got Lauren Bobert
Lauren Boebert, a Colorado gun owner who garnered national attention when she challenged former 2020 candidate Beto O'Rourke on his controversial gun buyback plan, is running for U.S. Congress.
She owns the "Shooters Grill" in Rifle, CO...where all the servers (all female?) OC and OCers/CCers are welcomed, even encouraged.
Shooters Grill of Rifle, famous for it's armed waitresses and great food welcomes you. We have all kinds of items for sale online. Take a look around and show your love of the First and 2nd amendment with a T-shirt!
And she doesn't like "Beto" O'Rourke (of El Paso, TX).
Good for her...may she be another Suzanna Gratia Hupp that we had in the TX State Legislature back in 1996 (inspired to run for office by the 1991 Killeen, TX Luby's "massacre")...
So I'm not ready to give up on CO yet. ;-)
As for Hickenpooper, yes, he also is a POS, and did plenty of liberal/Democrat damage to CO when he was Governor. And now with his latest election win, he's got a "popular mandate" to do more of the same as a Senator in Washington DC. But what can you do when SO MANY fools continue to vote for these people? I don't know...
