The top candidates for Colorado's Seventh Congressional District are facing off on energy policy and jobs, the debate breaking along predictable lines. Democratic Congressman Ed Perlmutter is a longtime advocate for renewable energy development, which he sees as an essential part of the drive toward national energy independence. He has supported so-called cap-and-trade legislation that would tax carbon as a way to move the country toward cleaner renewable fuels. Perlmutter's main GOP rival, Aurora City Councilman Ryan Frazier, calls Perlmutter's stance limiting and told the Colorado Independent that he is for an "all of the above" national energy policy that includes opposition to cap and trade and an embrace of oil and coal as well as alternative nuclear and renewable power.
And then there was none. Sen. Judd Gregg withdrew his name Thursday from the apparently haunted cabinet position at the Commerce Dept. See the state ethics probe that derailed his predecessor nominee Bill Richardson. Gregg cited the coming decennial U.S. Census, as one example, of irreconcilable disagreement with President Barack Obama. The census? Huh? The brewing oversight fight on the 2010 national head count promises high political drama. You think Dick Wadhams is just sticking around here for the fresh mountain air?
