Was it foreshadowing that an article about U.S. Rep. Jared Polis’s campaign event lead with a reminder “that Pueblo often gets overlooked and left behind the rest of the state?”
Because it appears that even in heavily Democratic Pueblo, Polis was overlooked and left behind by his party’s own voters.
Only 20 people showed up at a pizza restaurant to hear Polis’s vision of Pueblo’s future, which wasn’t very awe-inspiring.
The future, he declared, is not the past of a half-century ago.
The reason why Trump carried the Democratic stronghold in the last election, is because Hillary Clinton didn’t “do well enough” in promising a future instead of focusing on the past, the Gazette reported.
So what is Pueblo’s future? It’s bright, but it’s not the same as the past, Polis revealed.
No wonder only 20 people showed up.
Polis is living in the past if he thinks that Pueblo Democrats won’t cross party lines when their party produces a weak candidate like it did with Hillary, and like it does with congressional candidates.
