Over the past few days, the Trump-Pence campaign has been hard at work in Colorado with the appointment of leaders for various coalitions. The list features familiar names from Colorado’s business and political community with a few second generation politicos thrown in the mix.
While detractors have long criticized a perceived lack of ground game for Trump in Colorado, the fact of the matter is that most voters (you people reading this blog are not most voters, btw) do not really tune into the election until after Labor Day weekend. His unorthodox “just-in-time” delivery of coalition leaders could be a winning strategy for Trump. A lot of the other practical business strategies that the candidate has used thus far seem to have worked.
Some of the names leading Trump-Pence coalitions in Colorado include:
- Jerry Natividad and Floyd Trujillo – Hispanics for Trump
- Bentley Rayburn – military coalition
- Rachel Blaha Keane and Joel Crank – Millennials for Trump (yes, those are Robert Blaha and Jeff Crank’s kids)
- Derrik Wilburn – African Americans for Trump
- John Andrews – faith coalition
- Ken Witt and Jim Geddes – education and school choice
- Greg Brophy – agriculture
