Thumbs Up

Former Rep. Bob Schaeffer is getting a thumbs up from one of the most influential men in the state in his Senate bid: Focus on the Family founder, Dr. James Dobson.

Dobson said his support is his own personal endorsement and is not reflective of his ministry.

He calls Schaeffer an unrelenting foe of the secular left.

Gov. Owens and other leading Republicans have given their approval for opponent Peter Coors, saying he appeals to a broader base of voters.
