Colorado Democrats held their annual fundraising event Saturday for supporters who contributed up to $10,000 for the privilege of
attending the formal gala and rubbing elbows with their elected officials watching a bunch of boring speeches on their cell phone.
It was every bit as exciting as a late-night PBS fundraising pitch, or the Oscars.
The two hour infomercial featured a pre-recorded video of Vice President Harris reminiscing about the pandemic, and a host of Democrats parroting the party’s mantra for the last century — more must be done.
U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter, who has been a congressman for 14 years, pledged to finally start doing some actual work.
“Enjoy tonight, celebrate — we have a lot of work to do starting tomorrow.”
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet bragged about his measure he claims will slash poverty among children nationwide.
His big idea is the child tax credit allowing taxpayers to keep $5 (per child) of the money they earn at work everyday, which is just enough to buy the kids a drink, some chips and a candy bar at the gas station.
Gov. Polis and U.S. Rep. Jason Crow tied for Democrats of the year.
For what achievement is anyone’s guess.
Democrats aren’t exactly bragging about how many donors actually watched the Zoom event. Contributions as little as $100 earned an invite.
The list of speakers was a veritable list of Who’s Who in Democrat circles, plus a whole new host of Who the Hell is That?
Noticeably missing was U.S. Sen. John Hickenlooper.
From Colorado Politics:
Speakers included U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Jon Ossoff of Georgia, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Maggie Hassan of New Jersey, Chris Coons of Delaware and Alex Padilla of California; New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham; and U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff of California, who headlined the 2019 Obama Dinner.
Other Coloradans who appeared included party chairwoman Morgan Carroll, Gov. Jared Polis, U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette and Jason Crow, Secretary of State Jena Griswold, State Treasurer Dave Young, Senate President Leroy Garcia and House Speaker Alec Garnett.
