Merlin on the Colorado Governor’s race……

Hello Dog!

Ritter’s Exit in Colorado coupled with Hickenlooper’s Official Entry makes the Colorado Governor Race a whole new Ball-Game a new Statewide Survey shows.

Rasmussen Survey

Colorado Governor 2010

Denver Mayor John W. Hickenlooper (D)  49 %
former U. S. Rep. Scott McInnis (R)  45 %
Others  1 %
Undecided  6 %

Merlin’s Observation:

I told everybody after Ritter’s Exit that Hickenlooper would be a formidable Opponent  (Yes you did) and that McInnis probably isn’t the best Candidate for Republicans. Hickenlooper can run as Outsider, McInnis can’t. I’d rather would have loved seeing Colorado Attorney General John Suthers (R-CO) to run.

Salazar will not go home to Colorado……..

Merlin is doing pretty darn good these days…..he called it!.…..

Statement from Interior Secretary Ken Salazar:

“Colorado needs a strong, experienced leader with optimism and new ideas for carrying our state forward. That is why I am endorsing John Hickenlooper for Governor of Colorado,” Salazar said.

“John Hickenlooper is a uniter. He transcends political and geographic divides to bring people together to develop solutions. If he decides to run, he will make an excellent Governor for the State of Colorado.”

Merlin on Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's next move……..Does he go?….Does he stay?

Well what do you know….ole’ Merlin’s working overtime today!…..Here’s his thoughts on Ken Salazar, and the Colorado Governor’s race……
If  the Democrats are smart…..  they should  let  Ken Salazar stay where he is and focus their Attention on democratic Denver Mayor John Hicklooper .

Salazar got elected to the Senate in 2004 with Obama…… in 2008,  Salazar probably thought……’ ok, I’m joining the Presidents Administration.’

Now…….. with one year in as Interior Secretary…… I’m going back to Colorado to run for Governor?

That doesn’t make an awful lot of sense to me.

Secondly…….

The Landscape in Colorado is different now then when Salazar ran for the Senate, in 2004.

Democrats are really stumbling in the Rocky Mountain West……

Heck…… even known Pollster PPP thinks Salazar is IFFY.

If I put my money on even…… that Salazar is seriously considering running…… he’ll opt against it.

Hickenlooper will clear the Primary Field, and he’ll be the next Governor of Colorado.

If Salazar does run ……it will be a very close Race and he could actually lose it.

Mark my words.
