- Well, the Democrat gubernatorial primary has gone negative. A new PAC, Teachers for Kennedy, has come out with a major ad buy ($1.1m) framing Kennedy as the pro-education candidate and portraying Johnston and Polis as opponents of public ed. The ad is of questionable truthiness.
- When asked specifically to renounce the ad, Kennedy refused.
- Governor Hickenlooper told the Denver Post (it’s a paid link – sorry I know you guys hate that) he’s disappointed with Kennedy and her approach and believes she may even be jeapordizing her victory.
- Bonus: The Colorado Springs Gazette Ed Board has weighed in on the issue, and they brought the FIRE. “Unlike Polis and Johnston, Kennedy has no teaching background. A professional politician, she opposes modern school reforms and warns against expanding school choice.”
