“Polis stands out from many other Democratic politicians — but it’s a strategy that’s only made him more popular. While other Democratic governors were enacting strict COVID-19 regulations, Polis lifted mask mandates. While other Democrats scoffed at school choice, Polis, the founded of two charter schools, praised polices that increase educational choice. While other Democrats called for wealth taxes, Polis called on an end to Colorado’s income tax. … While the Democratic party — not to mention American politics as a whole — is trending towards embracing government control, Jared Polis offers a rare story of a politician that wants to reduce state power.” (11/10/22)
