I’m encouraging my fellow Coloradoans to vote for Phil Weiser for Attorney General. Phil is far and away the best candidate running for this position. His record — of leading complex litigation to protect consumers at the U.S. Department of Justice, managing teams of dozens of lawyers to get rural broadband to first-responders, and serving as dean and chief executive of the University of Colorado law school — shows he’s got just the right kind of leadership experience.
The GOP candidate’s claim that Democratic candidate Phil Weiser lacks “courtroom experience” badly misses the boat. No sitting AG has tried a case since the late 1800s, and criminal justice is only a small part of the AG’s job. Claiming otherwise is misleading and disingenuous, and the GOP candidate knows better.
