Maybe this is a sign of just how bad things have gotten for Republicans: recent Colorado Senate candidate Bob Schaffer has become...(drum roll)...a margarita pitchman! For real. Specifically, he is hawking something called "Coyote Gold Premium Margarita Mix." (Which makes a lot of sense, because when people think "delicious margaritas" they naturally also think "Colorado.") Here's video to prove it. Look out Coors Light. You've got Rocky Mountain competition.
Colorado is now well into its first year as the first state to legalize recreational marijuana. How's it going? James Hamblin visits Aspen.
