Darryl Glenn tells a Pennsylvania radio audience that Colorado’s Senate contest is a “national-level” race

“We want people out there to be concerned because the issues we are talking about are national-level issues.”

Darryl Glenn is running for senator of Colorado, but this morning he was making his case to the good people of Pennsylvania.

Glenn ostensibly was on News Talk 103.7 FM in another swing state, far, far away, to discuss the changes in Trump’s campaign, this much awaited “pivot,” but Glenn did what all good politicians do and answered the questions he wished he were asked instead.

Asked what he thought about the staffing changes in Trump’s campaign, Glenn said Trump is “committed” to doing what is necessary to win. Then he quickly made his own pivot to talk about his Senate race.

“What I want people to really focus in on is the fact that media and some of these other outlets are trying to get people distracted away from the critical issues that we’re facing,” he said. “I’m running against somebody, Michael Bennet, and I’m talking about the Obama-Clinton-Bennet agenda, and they are responsible for the Iran nuclear deal, for Obamacare, and that’s why our race is a national-level race, and we’ve captured that at electdarrylglenn.com.”

Glenn rattled off his website several times, with the hosts making explicit toward the end of the segment that listeners who liked what they heard had “options” (that is, money) to help Glenn.

“We want people out there to be concerned because the issues we are talking about are national-level issues,” Glenn said. “… While you might not be able to vote for me, you can certainly help me hold him accountable.”

Recent polling has Glenn trailing Bennet 38 percent to the Democrat’s 53.

Colorado progressives wasted no time in asking what Glenn was doing on a Pennsylvania radio show.

And this guy had something to say about it too.

That’s Kenny Rodeo, “conservative candidate for president,” of Colorado Springs. He is not on the ballot in Colorado at this time, but he has until Sept. 9.
