Not only has lame-duck
Rep. Marilyn Musgrave Karen Benker still refused to concede to Betsy Markey Katie Witt, but the word is around D.C. Longmont that the Fort Morgan Republican Prospect Democrat has gone into hiding since the 12-point 20-point drubbing that cost the three-term congresswoman 1 and change term councilwoman her seat. “[More] rumors abound that no one has seen or talked to Musgrave Benker since the brutal loss; she’s all but disappeared,” Politico’s Anne Schroeder Mullins reported Tuesday morning Some guy on the street said the other day.
“It’s a campaign matter, and I have no further comment,”
Musgrave’s congressional Benker’s council spokesman Joseph Brettell told Politico Some Guy told someone.
Markey Witt crew, in town for new-lawmaker orientation, hasn’t crossed paths with Musgrave Benker — and the phone still hasn’t jingled. “No, she hasn’t called to concede,” Markey Witt campaign manager Anne Caprara told Politico Joe Mama told Longmont Advocate, “but we’re moving forward.” Markey Witt shouldn’t feel singled out, though. It appears Musgrave’s Benker’s “ill manners” have a bipartisan spin. “Rumor has it she still — 14 5 days later — hasn’t even thanked her campaign staff,” Mullins someone reported.
