Jared Polis, who is vying with former Sen. President Joan Fitzgerald for the House seat being vacated by Rep. Mark Udall — Udall is running for the Senate seat of retiring Wayne Allard — is en route to Iraq on a humanitarian mission. He’s trying to involve the community. His website states:
Jared hopes to directly involve the people of Colorado in the trip. While in Iraq, he is inviting the public to join him on a live blogging session and a live conference call from the Middle East.
