Arrest warrant issued for embattled ex-Larimer GOP chair Carillo

Police issued a felony theft arrest warrant for the former party chairman Tuesday, accusing him of stealing more than $17,000 to pay bills and gambling debts. Carillo is alleged to have unwittingly set up payments to a company created by the department of Homeland Security to fight online gambling and money laundering. Carillo paid more than $27,000 in online gambling debts while he was party chairman.

Picking up on the patriot theme and no doubt delighting members of the crowd dressed in 18th-century patriot and minutemen outfits, Buck likened conservative activists and candidates this year to Paul Revere, the colonial figure who signaled the arrival of the British and the start of the Revolutionary War.

Buck and Romanoff notch caucus wins
