Clinton Backs Romanoff
Former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday split from national Democratic leaders by throwing his support to former Colorado Speaker Andrew Romanoff, who is challenging appointed Sen. Michael Bennet in a primary.

The move wont come as welcome news to the top party officials who are firmly behind Bennets bid for a full term this fall. A spokesman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee declined to comment on Clintons endorsement.

Before Romanoff announced his campaign for Senate earlier this year, several of the partys top brass tried to discourage him from running and forcing the appointed Senator into a bruising primary ahead of what is expected to be a competitive general election. According to recently filed campaign finance reports, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee had already spent more than $71,000 in coordinated expenditures to help Bennet as of May 31.

Clinton sent out a fundraising pitch for Romanoff on Tuesday, one day before the end of the June fundraising quarter.

1. Bennett along with Bacus is one of the causes we don't have
single payer. If you remember he voted quite a few times with the republicans.
