Election 2010: Colorado’s Tea Party Movement

Listen Now

As our Election 2010 coverage continues, we take the pulse of the Tea Party in the state. The percentage of people who identify with the movement in Colorado remains higher than the country as a whole. But support here has waned. According to a Rasmussen poll, 23-percent of Colorado voters now consider themselves “Tea Partiers.” That's down from 33 percent in April. Members are also split over who should be Colorado’s next governor. We hear from two Tea Party activists. Lana Fore publishes the American Constitutionalist Today. It's a Tea Party newspaper in Colorado Springs. Richard Schoenradt is treasurer of the Western Slope Conservative Alliance, based in Grand Junction. Both are registered Republicans.
