New Colorado Group Forms to Counter Tim Gill Political Machine

 

The Denver Post:

A new conservative political group formed to highlight economic issues has unveiled its first endeavor — automated calls ripping an education tax measure on the Nov. 1 ballot.

Compass Colorado was formed to blunt liberal group ProgressNow and similar efforts in the state, said Compass president Tyler Houlton.

"The days of conservatives putting up a haphazard front against the liberals' well-oiled Colorado machine are officially over," he said.

After an initial blitz against Proposition 103, the group expects to be very involved in state and federal economic issues, Houlton said.
Compass Colorado is the latest conservative group formed to counter the liberal movement that includes ProgressNow Colorado and wealthy donors such as Pat Stryker and Tim Gill.
