Capitol Conversation: What Santorum’s Caucus Wins Means for Colorado Republicans

Creative Commons

Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum upended Colorado’s political establishment by winning last week’s Republican caucus, beating front-runner Mitt Romney. It was a move that most never saw coming. KUNC’s state capitol reporter Bente Birkeland spoke with fellow state house reporters about the outcome and what it means for state Republicans.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
