Saxton outs himself on TABOR spending trap

Looks like Saxton ain't gonna play to the base on this one....

Saxton opposes spending limit measure

Republican canidate for governor Ron Saxton, defying some of his staunchest supporters, said Friday he opposes a proposed state spending limit that voters will decide in November.

After dodging questions on the issue for weeks, Saxton released a statement saying he “will not be supporting” the ballot measure.

“The best spending limit is a governor who himself acts as a spending limit,” Saxton said. “That is a responsibility I embrace.”

New Saxton campaign slogan:

Vote for Ron Saxton: the Goobernotorial Spending Trap.

I like it.
