Rancher Steve Wells is hoping to defeat Democrats in November by spending a portion of the fortune grown from allowing oil and gas drilling on his 40,000-acre spread in Weld County.
By Sam Metz and Brady McCombs, Associated Press SALT LAKE CITY — The state of Utah and two Republican-leaning rural counties sued the Biden administration on Wednesday over the president’s decision last year to restore two sprawling national monuments on rugged lands sacred to Native Americans that former President Donald Trump had downsized. The lawsuit over Bears […]
More than three weeks before Liz Cheney’s shellacking in the Wyoming primary, it was clear across our neighboring state to the north that her campaign was kaput. As we drove through Saratoga, Rock Springs, Jackson, Alta and beyond in late July, I counted three “Cheney for Wyoming” signs and dozens of “Hageman for Congress” billboards […]
As it turns out, I was apparently wrong that Donald Trump’s docunapping of White House papers would likely be related to the January 6 assault on the Capitol. For once, I seem to have underestimated the man. What we’ve learned from the FBI search at Mar-o-Lago is clearly worse than that, far worse, a worse-than-Nixon […]

I was going to write today about the spread of the potentially deadly omicron variant of COVID-19, but I’m afraid there’s another dangerous virus making its rounds — threatening Colorado, threatening America, threatening to normalize bigotry, threatening democracy itself — that also must be addressed. This virus, sadly, has no vaccine. No cure. I’m pretty […]
Even as results poured in across Colorado and the country on Tuesday night, pundits tripped over themselves to interpret what lessons should be drawn from the election. On the Democratic side, progressives called for even more liberal policies. Their moderate colleagues advocated a more restrained approach. Republicans claimed their message broke through and illuminated the […]
Top Colorado Republicans will vote next month on whether to abandon their party’s statewide primaries in 2022, a move that some in the GOP warn could alienate unaffiliated voters, who make up 43% of the electorate, and solidify Democratic control. Under the proposal, a fraction of registered Republicans would select general election candidates for U.S. […]
