Colorado Independent columnist, longtime state political observer and wry wit Mike Littwin talks with DemocracyNow! host Amy Goodman on the state’s U.S. Senate and gubernatorial races.
The races are tight, he notes; the money pouring in from all sides is horrific, as are the ads the money pays for and that litter the airwaves; and Republican candidates are running away from their Tea Party brand even while showing no signs at all of letting go Tea Party policy positions. In sum, Colorado politics is U.S. politics in miniature, and not at all pleasant.
Yet! Littwin and Goodman manage to make the state of affairs interesting and entertaining.
Note: The interview will also broadcast on KGNU, Friday at 3:30.
