Way out of the box -- Jane Norton for Governor???
I was inspired toward this idea by reader Brian. Not sure if this is what he meant or if I just inferred it from his words…
How about Jane Norton becoming the replacement candidate for Governor? She’s the best qualified, and getting out of Buck’s way in a race that she seems likely to lose anyway would then allow Buck to support her.
Or, what about the other way around? Buck becomes the candidate for Governor. That would be fine, too, especially as Buck’s experience is also managerial. Either Buck or Norton is better qualified than either McInnis or Maes, and they’re both more electable.
It’s a win-win for Colorado’s two best canidates for the two biggest elections.
I know it’s an extreme longshot, but I think it’s a GREAT idea. I think it would require either Dan Maes getting out of the way now, along with McInnis, so a vacancy committee could fill the blank with Norton or Buck, or it would require going through the primary and then having the winner get out, again a longshot given the egos of those involved.
