Colo. Republicans run from Steele

Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele showed up in Colorado last Thursday but the GOP’s top statewide candidates didn’t exactly roll out the welcome wagon.

Their absence suggested the degree of Steele’s isolation, a week after he made comments questioning the Obama administration’s approach to the war in Afghanistan.
