Wrong again! Ritter to announce Senate candidate tomorrow
I haven't been so wrong about a political pick since I predicted that then-Lieutenant Governor Joe Rogers would lead a crowded pack in the Republican primary for the congressional seat ultimately claimed by Democrat Ed Perlmutter.
Governor Bill Ritter just announced that he'll hold a news conference at 2 p.m. tomorrow (and not January 6, as I'd predicted this morning) to announce and introduce his appointee to the U.S. Senate.
And that appointee won't be Perlmutter, or Andrew Romanoff, or John Hickenlooper, or Gary Hart (my favorite) -- but reportedly current Denver Public Schools superintendent Michael Bennet, according to the scoop provided first by Lynn Bartels of the Rocky Mountain Newsf. -- Patricia Calhoun
