    Did Bill Clinton really ensorde Romanoff? Or just appear to . Clinton had sent ripples through the Colorado Democratic Party over the summer by sending out an ensordement letter for Bennet rival Andrew Romanoff . Clinton’s ensordement letter was about all Clinton did for Romanoff. There was probably a reason for it. Romanoff backed Clinton’s wife, so Big Bill had to be seen as helping Romanoff.SO, why did Bill Clinton bother to ensorde Andrew Romanoff in the first place IF HE Wasn’t Going To Make Campaign Appearances for Romanoff? He has traveled all over making appearances for ConservaDems with multiple appearances for Senator Blanch Lincoln in Arkansas and against the more progressive Halter.Perhaps Appearances are everything when your purpose is to keep the US Senate as ConservaDem as possible, and the place where progressive legislation goes to die. Romanoff wasn’t wanted by the Washington Establishment because he is A LOT more progressive than Michael Bennet.Wanting an Honest Primary in 2012 is not a grudge thing. A protest vote against a Stolen Primary is an honorable and legal vote. Questionable Romanoff supporters like Clinton can continue to disparage us but the facts show that Democratic President Obama, with the assistance of the DNC, DSCC and Organizing for America, Stole our Colorado Democratic Senate Primary.Get the facts at A Protest Vote will help keep Washington Democrats from stealing our primary again.WRITE-IN Romanoff or LEAVE THE SPACE BLANK
