PICTURE RELEASE: Feel the Staple-thusiasm!
Stapleton Momentum on Display…Turning Out 2 People
Walker Stapleton’s enthusiasm gap can be summed up in one photo. When he visited Sterling, Colorado, on Monday, he drew in a whopping two people—an elected Republican official and a Republican candidate—to hear his ideas for Colorado.
Despite not doing his job and missing from work for weeks at a time while campaigning with fringe right-wing figures like Tom Tancredo, Stapleton isn’t getting his voters all that excited. Likely because his real base consists of his special interest donors.
“If Walker Stapleton hasn’t realized he’s in trouble by now, this photo should make things crystal clear,” said Democratic Governors Association Deputy Communications Director David Turner. “Everyday Coloradans aren’t buying what Walker Stapleton is selling them. He’s probably a bit more comfortable when he’s surrounded by the likes of Tom Tancredo or his special interest donors.”
