Labor Day, Indeed
Political observers are itching for the release of August fundraising figures next week. It will be a crucial barometer for Beauprez, whose contribution tallies have been lagging behind Ritter since the start of the year. Some blame the congressman's sluggish fundraising on his opposition to Referendum C, which Colorado voters passed in November to allow the cash-strapped state to keep millions in revenue that otherwise would have been returned to taxpayers. Many Republican business leaders backed the initiative -- as did Ritter. But Beauprez's camp points out that the congressman -- unlike Ritter -- faced a bruising primary battle.The warm-up is over, and now it's time for the big show. Your television will soon be deluged with political ads, and registered voters will see more mail in the next two months than they've seen in the last year. For political candidates Labor Day isn't a day of rest at all -- it's a day that means it's time to start working twice as hard.
