Fourth, in case you've politely overlooked it, like I have, Bill Ritter is pro-life, pro-gun, and vetoed the best thing organized labor's passed out of the legislature in years. I'm quite happy Udall isn't as conservative, but I don't think the rest of Colorado shares that feeling.
And for the record, Bill Ritter isn't a conservative, and doesn't come close. He is the epitome of a well packaged liberal time bomb with a smile, a slogan, and a song.
That bomb will go off this upcoming year in the form of more taxes, a nanny state health care system that will cost billions, out of control lawyers, and, oh yes, he will sign a HB 1272 the second time around. Pro Gun? Not based on the bills he signed this year. Where are the shooting ranges he promised during the campaign?
If Ritter is the standard, and Udall is to the left of him, that makes Mark Udall left wing. We don't have that category, but we do have "reliably left wing."
The Mark Udall is not a moderate scoreboard:
