“It’s time to stop censoring”: Senate candidates frustrated with Colorado Democratic Party rules
Candidates are not allowed to talk about each other, livestream or record at forums organized by the state party
"In interviews this week, six of the eight candidates who attended the Pueblo forum criticized those rules. Michelle Ferrigno Warren defended them. John Hickenlooper sent a brief statement through a spokesperson and declined to be interviewed.

“It’s a very pleasant fiction to suggest we’re not running against each other. Clearly one of us will emerge from this contest and take on Cory Gardner,” said Andrew Romanoff, adding, “The rules are silly and largely unenforceable.”

“I strongly prefer debates!” Trish Zornio emailed.

“I think (the rules) are a bit stringent,” said state Sen. Angela Williams, “because we don’t have the opportunity to compare and contrast our views and our policies so that the audience and the people of Colorado can get to know the candidates.”

Hickenlooper moves to solidify his position in the democrat primary. Control of the rules by which the others can campaign.

"PARTY OF RICH OLD WHITE MEN: Williams Drops out of Democrat’s Senate Primary
Nov 29, 2019
Angela Williams has dropped out of the donkey herd seeking to overthrow John Hickenlooper to become the Democrat’s U.S. Senate nominee.
That’s five candidates down, and seven left to choose from to take on Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner.
Williams will instead seek reelection to her state Senate seat representing northeast Denver’s District 33.
But now she’ll have to take on another Democrat, state Rep. James Coleman, to keep that seat.
It’s a tough gig getting elected in today’s Democratic Party that hates rich, old white men, unless you’re a rich, old white man.
Williams blasted her own party in her departing statement for pushing aside women and minorities in their pursuit of the elusive, white male Democrat.
“Fighting to give women, people of color, and the underserved a voice isn’t always easy, especially when faced with strong headwinds from Washington D.C.,” Williams said.
“As you know, Colorado has never sent a woman or a person of color to the U.S. Senate. I remain firm in my belief that that needs to change. Regardless of who wins the nomination, we must have someone who will fight and be a progressive voice for women, people of color and the underserved,” Williams wrote.

"Only Here For The Beer"?

Surprised the DNC is showing such favoritism to the old white guy candidate in a state with many powerful woman politicians and such a long tradition of Hispanic history.

Not much action on this topic, until:
You have a new candidate who jumped in the race this week with a background in international relations and homeland security — David Goldfischer, University of Denver professor.
