The late Joe Coors was a member of Ronald Reagan's kitchen cabinet. Joe's son, Peter Coors, was the Colorado Republican Party's candidate for U.S. Senate in 2004. And Joe's grandson, 28-year-old Jonathan Coors, an exec with CoorsTek, is leading the charge (and pouring in the cash) for the right-to-work initiative headed for the state ballot in November.
So no way the Democrats could hold their biggest event ever at Coors Field. But at least they know that they've got the Republicans trumped: John McCain can't move his speech to the football stadium in the Twin Cities -- because it's the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.
