Also here is a recent story i did on Betsy Markey that got the guys on Fox radio a little up in arms....
"What a desperate Republican incumbent acts like (Musgrave CO-4)"
"This week I had CO-4 Candidate Betsy Markey back on my radio show to talk about her vision for the district and for Colorado. The interview is great on its own, because, well, Betsy Markey is hands down a better candidate Marilyn Musgrave. The interesting part of the story is that Marilyn Musgrave went on the local Fox affiliate KCOL of Ft.Collins earlier in the day with their show's host, John Clarke, where they went on to smear Betsy Markey for 'making up a scheduling conflict' to 'avoid a debate on KCOL' and accusing her of being 'afraid to debate' (just like Mark Udall and Barack Obama are 'afraid to debate')
Not only that, they called me a 'liberal talk show host' and even my station 'some liberal station in Denver.'
Well aside from being flattered that Mr. Clarke would mention us, you have to wonder how desperate Musgrave is to be demanding debates from her challenger - as the 6 year incumbent. more below... "
believe or not they accused Markey of
making up a scheduling conflict
But Marter told PolitickerCO.com Friday afternoon that Markey can't debate Musgrave on KCOL-AM Saturday morning, as she'll be on a different radio show - "Ultimate Politics" on KCKK-AM 1510 and KSXT-AM 1570.
Musgrave manager Jason Thielman responded
"That (other radio show booking) is conveniently appeared, I believe," Thielman said.
Da Nerve! Make sure you bring the change from your couch cushions so we can put Musgrave and her campaign manager on vacation.
