Jim DeMint has a Picnic with Ken Buck

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) paid a visit to Colorado to support Senate Candidate Ken Buck in his effort to be the GOP Nominee. As part of the events surrounding DeMint's visit, a notice went out to 912 Project and Tea Party activists to come to a Downtown Denver City Park for hotdogs, potato salad and soft drinks. The invitation was somewhat selective and most required a logon to find the details of the picnic.


Ken Buck was among the first to throw his hat in the ring for the Senate race and over the past months he has visited with and spoken to virtually all GOP organizations in Colorado. His hard work has apparently paid off, garnering him endorsements from Eric Ericson at Redstate.com and Dick Army as well as DeMint.


In spite of the semi-private nature of the event, there were several TV crews crowding around DeMint and Buck as they made their rounds meeting and greeting the supporters. One interesting thing about the crowd was the high number of middle aged women. Sarah Palin has made a lot about the Mama Grizzlies, women who have raised children and know when to protect their young. You can see a great video made by the Sarah Pac here. Seeing these strong, sincere women come out forcefully for Ken Buck, you can't help but be impressed by what Ken Buck has accomplished already.


Mail-in ballots for the August Primary come out shortly. The senate race between Norton and Buck has become the most dramatic inter-party race for Colorado this cycle.
