Referendum C and D update (8/30/05).

Over the last week the Referendum C and D campaign entered a new phase. The Pro-C side shifted its tactics. They transformed their campaign from a single pronged attack that focused on introducing and selling the referenda to the voters, into a multi-front campaign. The new tactic was introduced on the 23rd by a series of Lynn Bartels articles in the Rocky Mountain News. One focuses on the attack against the Independence Institute. A link to it can be found here. The other focuses on the attack on the Colorado Club for Growth and Colorado Freedom Works. A link to it can be found here.

On the 25th a Bill Scanlon article revealed that two liberal groups, The League of Women Voters and Colorado Common Cause, were joining the Vote Yes on C&D campaign in calling for the Independence Institute, Colorado Freedom Works and the Colorado Club for Growth (all identified as conservative) to reveal their donors. A link to that article is available here.

In another Bill Scanlon article, this one from today, it became obvious that the Anti-C side was determined to repeal the attacks from the Pro-C side. House Minority Leader Joe Stengal (R) filed a complaint against Buffie McFadyen (D) saying that she was promoting C and D on taxpayer financed time.

The guys over at Coloradopols.com posted on this story on the 25th. If you don't already know, Coloradopols.com is THE place where political fanatics and insiders go in Colorado. A link to their post is available here. It is interesting not only for the body of the post, but the discussion in the comments section is also a wealth of information. They also have a poll that asks if you think C and D will pass. A link to that poll is available here.
