Norma Anderson quits State Senate

Just in case you rely solely on me for news - a scary thought! - I thought I'd better mention this. As reported by the Rocky Mountain News, Republican Norma Anderson has vacated her State Senate seat. Some good commentary at Colorado Luis.

UPDATE: The Boulder Daily Camera has a news story on why Republicans like Rep. Mark Larson, Sen. Norma Anderson, and former U.S. Senator Ben Campbell are not happy with their party's demands for "absolute obedience." You may have to register to read the article.

UPDATE: Former Colorado Republican Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell's disgust with his own party has made CNN. Check it out.

UPDATE: Republican Fort Collins State Sen. Steve Johnson has joined the chorus of Republicans disgusted with their party's rigid politics and unrelenting partisanship.

UPDATE: This story just won't quit. Check out this story in the Durango Herald, which I first noticed at coloradopols. Larson says his party is out to purge moderates, even if it means losing races. Who would have thought a whole party could melt down this completely?
