Radio, May 21: Crunch time for Republicans

Join us on radio every Sunday, 5-8pm on 710 KNUS, DenverTo listen online from anywhere, click ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our show this Sunday will look at the sea of troubles currently facing the Republican Party, and how the GOP can take up arms against them for a winning strategy this fall.

Coming off their test of strength at the Republican nominating assembly on Saturday, Colorado gubernatorial candidates Marc Holtzman and Bob Beauprez (represented by his campaign manager, John Marshall) will preview the August primary.

Coming off a very disappointing (to most conservatives) immigration speech by the President last Monday, with basement poll numbers for both Bush and the GOP Congress, State Rep. Dave Schultheis will outline ideas from the conservative legislators caucus he chairs, for better policies on illegal aliens and other issues.

The May 21 show will be "Backbone Radio without John Andrews," as I'll be on a TABOR trip to Pennsylvania, where conservatives won big against liberal incumbents in this week's Republican primary. So your capable hosts will be my friends Joshua Sharf and Krista Kafer.

Joshua and Krista will also be interviewing Tom Tillapaugh about the Denver Street School, which rescues kids others have given up on... Connie Pratt of Colorado Right to Life... and Carl Lundblad of the Christian Legal Society.

Please listen from 5-8pm this Sunday, May 21, on 710 KNUS in Denver and around the world. Call in with your two-cents at 303-696-1971. Or comment by email at
