As you may know, Mike Coffman’s not running in the same exact district that he ran in two years ago. The new District 6 is split between Independents, Democrats and Republicans, and now includes Aurora. That means Mike can’t just cater to the wealthy and the right-wing fringe of the GOP — he needs to represent people from all backgrounds, colors, and creeds.
As it turns out, Mike once knew Aurora pretty well. “Coming from Aurora certainly helps,” Coffman said about his chances in an interview recently.
So, by the way he tells it, Aurora is just like home. But if there’s no place like home, why doesn’t Mike swing by for a visit? The election is only 54 days away, and with a dance card quickly filling with fundraisers, it’s only going to get harder and harder for him to find the time. But we’ll be here, because for us this is home.
