Darryl Glenn may be the next political rock star in conservative circles after the popular Air Force Vet appears to be headed for a major win in tonight’s Colorado’s Republican Senate primary.
Glenn has nearly 40% in a 5 way race, with his closest competitor at 22%.
Glenn’s campaign, which unexpectedly beat a State Senator just to receive a spot on the ballot, has defied expectations since the beginning.
According to the Denver Post:
“Winning support from constitutional conservatives and Tea Party supporters, the 13-year local elected official and retired Air Force lieutenant colonel remains the clear favorite among the GOP faithful after he secured his slot on the ballot with a surprising upset at the state party convention.
This week, he received the support of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the highest-profile endorsement in the race to date.
“Glenn is the most qualified and most experienced,” said Brad Tutor, the Gunnison County GOP chairman and a supporter. “He’s a constitutional, Christian, conservative person.”
Glenn has repeatedly been described as the true conservative in the race, according to reports.
“If conservatives wonder who they should support in Colorado’s Republican Senate primary, they should stop wondering and support Darryl Glenn…
Darryl Glenn… is a rock solid conservative. He will oppose liberal judges. He will not cave on the second amendment. He will not falter on the issue of life.
It is not a surprise then that much of the Washington Republican establishment is rooting againstDarryl Glenn and backing his liberal rival, Graham. Washington lobbyists hate Darryl Glenn because they fear he might cut short their gravy train. They are attacking him for daring to be a principled conservative.
