In Colorado, Controversial Secretary of State Candidate Suddenly Bows Out to Be Trump's 2024 Running Mate

Colorado elects its election officials, usually a sleeper, but since Donald Trump easily took over what used to be the Republican Party, things have never been the same.


Mesa County, which borders Utah, is almost totally red, and ever since Tina Peters got herself elected as Clerk and Recorder there, she has entertained the entire Colorado media, all the in the process of making her campaign the most closely watched in the nation.


In her intrepid bid to become the nation’s most egregiously unqualified local elections official, she managed to get herself indicted for various counts of fraud and other criminal activities.


After being indicted, she announced her bid to unseat the Centennial State’s rising electoral star, Jena Griswold. And tomorrow, she faces off against a well-qualified Republican opponent, former Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder Pam Anderson.


A darling of the Trumpian wing of the Colorado Republican Party, Peters has been raising small donations for months now, and she has a huge war chest.


Assuming that she wins tomorrow, all this guarantees an enormous slugfest in Colorado, that will grab most of the headlines among the races for the constitutional offices in the Centennial State, dwarfing the contests for Governor, Attorney General, and State Treasurer.


Capping her maximalist drive for Total Notoriety, Peters stunned even your solitary reporter by announcing that she’s quit the race in favor of accepting Trump’s offer to make her his running mate in 2024.


“It’ll be my Dream Job,” she told associate solitary reporter Keith Coleman.


After the polls close tomorrow, we’ll post a follow-up.
