Clintons Want Colorado in 2016

From 1993 to 1996, Bill Clinton practically moved to California. He wanted to win it big in the 1996 race. He won it 51 percent to 38 percent against Bob Dole (four years earlier, Clinton won with 46% of the vote against Bush’s 33%, but Ross Perot took 21%).

The Clintons want Colorado for Hillary in 2016, and we can expect to see a lot of them.

Bill won the state in 1992 against George Bush Sr. with the help of Ross Perot (Clinton 40%, Bush 36%, Perot 23%), but he lost it in 1996 against Dole (Dole 46%, Clinton 44%). Hillary lost the caucus in 2008 against President Obama. The family doesn’t intend to lose again.

“If you come to California, it’s because you want money, as a Democrat,” said Floyd Ciruli, a Denver-based political analyst. “If you come to Colorado, it means you want votes.”
