State GOP chairman Dick Wadhams sits down and opens up
on a wide range of political topics in an illuminating interview with The Colorado Statesman editor Jody Hope Strogoff and reporter Jason Kosena, who was The Colorado Independent's chief political reporter
through the 2008 election.
Unlike his ubiquitous -- sometimes vulgar
-- sound bites issued during the heat of the campaign, Wadhams sounds positively relaxed and introspective as he discusses the future of the Republican Party in Colorado, prospects for retaking the legislature and statewide seats, and even whether Marilyn Musgrave should have called to concede to Betsy Markey
after losing her 4th District seat in Congress (short answer: yes).
