Who Would Pay to Hear Mike Pence? Not Many Republicans

❝ The Colorado Republican Party has slashed prices for Pence’s keynote address by 45 percent after failing to sell enough of the $275 tickets to the October 26 speech in Denver…

❝ The Party said…that the Vice President will still draw “our expected attendance of 400 supporters,” but spun the ticket price cut as a tip of the hat to low-level campaign workers.

❝ Colorado GOP officials maintain that Trump enjoys broad support in the state, but it is unclear if that’s the case. Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton beat the president 47 percent to 42 percent in the state in 2016. And Barack Obama crushed Mitt Romney in the state in 2012 in a 51 to 47 percent vote. The demographics of the state have been changing for decades; Hispanics now comprise 21.3 percent of population, up from 17 percent in 2000…

But, then, Republican statistics have depended for a long time on [1] declining voter turnout across the board to go along with their voter suppression efforts – and [2] Democratic Party unwillingness, inability to do a damned thing about [1].
