As the 1992 presidential campaign honed in on voter priorities, political consultant James Carville decided to simplify the message for his candidate. He told Bill Clinton, “It’s the economy, stupid.”
When the 67th Colorado General Assembly convenes this week, Carville’s message will be coming through loud and clear. Everyone’s agenda is the same. It doesn’t matter whether it is the executive branch or the legislative branch. It doesn’t matter whether they are Republicans or Democrats. It’s the economy, stupid.
