Potential U.S. Senate Candidate Says He “Feels” Like a Conservative

PolitiChicks.comThe Colorado Republican field of U.S. Senatorial candidates vying for the party’s nomination to unseat incumbent Michael Bennett may grow larger with the possible addition of District Attorney George Brauchler.

Five individuals declared their candidacy so far, but no high profile candidates have emerged. Brauchler received notoriety from the massive media attention as the prosecuting attorney in the Aurora theater shooting case.

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

When asked about his political ideology in an interview with Politico, Brauchler said, “I feel like Im a conservative.

Brauchler’s name has been tossed around as early as January when Roll Call cited him as a possible challenger: “Republicans describe him as smart, articulate and ambitious, but several GOP operatives said he might prefer to run for governor instead in 2018.”

Colorado’s Republican Senator Cory Gardner expressed enthusiasm on the potential Brauchler candidacy. He told Politico, “I think if he ran for the Senate, he’d be someone who a lot of Republicans could get behind — including myself,”

Gardner, once considered a “tea party hero,” ran for the U.S. Senate in 2016 positioned as a conservative—and has since trended liberal in his voting record.

A September 1, 2015 analysis of the Conservative Review’s Senate scorecard showed Gardner earned an “F” with a 20% rating. In comparison, the self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for president received a 16% rating.

Now that Brauchler admitted to feeling like a conservative, the real question is if he would vote like one—or would he instead join Gardner and Sanders in their liberal, progressive voting patterns?

Kathryn Porter is a political watchdog who has served as an elected member of the Colorado GOP State Central Committee and the El Paso County Republican Party Executive Committee. As an illuminator of truth, she was banned as a guest of the 2016 Republican National Convention by then Colorado State Chairman. Following her banishment, she contested the entire 2016 delegation to hold the state party accountable for balloting errors, the disregard of bylaws, and numerous irregularities at the state convention. The 2016 RNC Credentials Committee granted her a convention pass, overruling the former chair's pronouncement. In an RNC report responding to the case she brought before the Committee on Contests, the Colorado Republican Committee was chastized for its "embarassing incompetentence."
