Allard Honors Term-Limits Pledge

Posted: Jun 01, 2007 5:22 PM

Sen. Wayne Allard announced today he would honor his term- limits pledge, and not seek re-election to the United States Senate.

On the negative side, this will make it harder for Republicans to hold the seat.  But on the positive side, we ought to be happy to have an example of a Republican keeping his word. 

As the Rocky Mountain News reported:

Appearing with his wife, Joan, at a press conference at the state Capitol, Allard said, "The people of Colorado placed their trust in me based on a promise I made to them and I am honoring that promise. In an age when promises are cast away as quickly as yesterday’s newspaper, I believe a promise made should be a promise kept."
