Second Congressional District is seeking a moderate Republican to run for the U.S. House of Representatives. Republican must have high name ID to be competitive for a seat where Republicans lost by 40% in 2006 election to Democrat incumbent despite only having a 6% voter registration disadvantage. Long walks on the beach, er I mean long precinct walks are a must have for applicant. Republican must bear a resemblance to Milton Friedman in ideology with strong tree hugging tendencies in a district where Unaffiliated, Green and Libertarian party registration numbers are the highest of any Congressional District in Colorado. Self funder is preferred as potential Democrat nominee will be billionaire Jared Polis, Union funded Joan Fitz-Gerald or environmental funded Will Shafroth. Strong message of being fiscally conservative and small government minded from beginning to end is a must as the Dem challengers will almost certianlly take themselves off the spectrum of liberal idiocy in a brutal primary of who can "out left" the others. If Republican can meet this criteria, a seat in Congress is potential reward. Former 7th Congressional candidate Rick O’Donnell would be a great role model for applicant to have. Applicants should contact Dick Wadhams for more details.
