Since, traditionally, no sane conservative runs in Colorado’s CD2 District, which includes liberal Boulder, Colorado, Jared Polis‘ victory in the Primary over environmental leader Will Shafroth and State Senate President Joan-Fitzgerald means he’s…going to Washington! Having known Jared a bit for years, it’s a funny feeling to see him having made it truly big-time (an internet mogul, he’d already made it big-time in business—but Congress means you matter, and have a real chance to ‘be of benefit.’)

Here’s our debate with the three worthy candidates a few months back, for old times’ sake.

And way back, when I was still wet behind the ears at the whole interviewing thing, here’s my interview of Jared in the backstage backyard of the Trident Cafe.
