JeffCo GOP Candidates Support Trump, Dem Candidates Run From Hillary

30 Oct

Update: I am scratching Todd Melkus off this list because, at the end of his spiel, he did state his support for his party’s nominee. My apologies.

This year, it its election guide, the Leader asked the candidates if they support their party’s nominee for president. I think this is a somewhat worthwhile question, unlike some of the other questions they ask (like “should county council seats be nonpartisan?”). The takeaway from this question is that all GOP candidates in the county were happy to state their support for Donald Trump, but that many Democrat candidates would not endorse Hillary Clinton. None of them outright said they would not support her, they merely ducked the question in various ways. Here is a list of county Democratic candidates who would not answer whether or not they support Hillary:

Unclear: Legislature candidate Karen Settlemoir-Berg gave an uncertain answer. One could read it as a Hillary endorsement or a dodge. Read her answer here and judge for yourself.

    Every one of them is supporting Clinton, otherwise they would release a statemnet saying “they do not support her”.

    Silence is support!

    Melkus made the best answer of all, regardless of party. Hit the nail on the head. Always vote for the best, regardless of party. Didn’t sacrifice his integrity and answered the question with a resounding “yes”. We need more like him.
