Yesterday, Jefferson County Democrats held a “potluck” meet-and-greet for candidate Brittany Pettersen, who is running for House District 28 against Republican Amy Attwood. A Denver Post article noted that the event drew Democratic superstars, including U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter, state Senate hopeful Andy Kerr, CU regent candidate Stephen Ludwig, and others.
Oddly enough, despite being a volunteer with several “Brittany Stars” (according to the Denver Post picture), we cannot find any evidence that Kerr has publicly endorsed Brittany Pettersen’s bid for the state House. And, neither has Perlmutter. And, neither has Ludwig.
Do these candidates know something about Brittany Pettersen that we don’t? Why won’t these Democratic leaders publicly endorse Pettersen? With her fundraising lagging behind Attwood’s fundraising, she’d probably appreciate it.
What gives, gentlemen?
