Right now, Democrat Jared Polis is the Colorado congressional leader when it comes to using new media, sometimes to excess; note that last week, Polis' staff uploaded more than twenty healthcare stories about his constituents to YouTube. But Republican Mike Coffman seems ready to give JP a run for his money. Coffman has launched his own YouTube channel, which he introduces in the welcome video above -- and it's not the only clip available. Also on view is footage from several U.S. House speeches, including one about tort reform embedded below. Coffman promises to keep the content fresh, and he's smart to do so. After all, technology is nonpartisan. Why should he let the Dems have all the fun?
