(DENVER) – Yesterday, Denver attorney and combat veteran Jason Crow admitted his membership in a new training program created by the left’s congressional king-making organization, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
During a discussion with the Aurora Sentinel, Crow attempted to sidestep his ties to Nancy Pelosi and the DCCC.
“For his part, Crow said he wasn’t recruited by Pelosi or anyone else in the party to run against Coffman. “As a matter of fact I’ve never met (Pelosi) and I’ve never spoken with her. I’m nobody’s candidate expect (sic) for voters of the 6th Congressional District.”
But this “too-cute-by-half” response started to unwind as the Crow campaign was pressed by additional reporters. In an interview with Ernest Luning of the Colorado Statesman, a Crow campaign spokeswoman finally acknowledged Crow had attended a special “boot camp” for candidates identified as fitting the DCCC’s ideal mold:
“‘In fact, this trend is so prevalent, four veteran Democrats declared their candidacy against Republican incumbents just today after attending the DCCC’s ‘boot camp’ this weekend to prepare them for the rigors of a campaign,” Maher said, listing candidates in California, Pennsylvania and Virginia in addition to Crow. (A Crow spokeswoman acknowledged that Crow had attended the DCCC session, although she said it was Crow who reached out to the DCCC, not the other way around.)’”
