“Mr. Nelson, veterans in Aurora ask for your resignation,” Barry, who is a retired Major General in the U.S. Air Force, said before the Aug. 16 meeting.
Coffman is the only Republican to say Trump doesn’t smell very good, but missed making the list in The Hill of those who insist Trump actually reeks.
“Payments like this will only serve to put a target on the backs of our soldiers, as terrorist organizations and rogue states everywhere will seek similar windfalls,” Coffman’s email read. Associated Press fact checks of Trump’s claim have found no concrete evidence to support it.
It’s the Republican candidates who pose the real threat to Coffman. For him to win in November, Coffman will probably have to rely on voters splitting their tickets not just once, but repeatedly, in an era when ticket-splitting is as out of fashion as taxi-hailing.
“People ask me, ‘What do you think about Trump?’” Coffman says in the ad. “Honestly, I don’t care for him much — and I certainly don’t trust Hillary.”

Mike Coffman, R-Aurora, waded into the wild and tangled saga surrounding embattled Aurora Public Schools Board of Education director Eric Nelson Tuesday, Aug. 2, urging U.S. Attorney John Walsh to investigate whether Nelson had violated federal law.

In addition to Aurora Congressman Mike Coffman, other Republicans scheduled to appear included Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Texas Sen. John Cornyn, South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah.

“For months I have made it clear when, where, and how I disagree with Donald Trump,” Coffman said in his statement. “He has no apparent plan to balance the budget, his immigration policy is cruel and absurd, and his divisive campaign is further dividing America.
“From humble beginnings, Aurora has grown to be the third most-populous city in Colorado with a rich and ethnically diverse population. I have lived in Aurora since I was 6 years old and have watched with amazement the city’s transformation from a modest Denver suburb into the thriving city it is today,” Coffman said.
