Given the repellent effect Trump has toward election-deciding independent voters in Colorado, and failed U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman’s post-election declaration that Trump caused him to lose his swing district last year, you’d expect more Colorado Republicans to start jumping off the Trump ship, at least here in Colorado.

Maybe they think it won’t help, and they’re probably right, if you look at how hard Coffman tried (and failed) to make people believe he was the anti-Trump Republican.

But conservative KOA 850-AM radio host Mandy Connell might be leading the way on her show, which airs from noon till 3 p.m.

“There, I said it.”

On her blog yesterday, she wrote, “Could Mitt Romney be considering a primary run at Trump? I would consider voting for him. There, I said it.”

But will other Colorado conservatives start saying it? My guess is the dam won’t break until/if the blue-wave round-two strikes next year here.
