“On the birth certificate, I don’t know,” Beauprez said, responding to Solomon’s claim that there “is no birth certificate.”"I've heard both sides." On the one hand, a shortform birth certificate and a newspaper birth announcement; on the other hand, unfounded accusations. But hey, birth certificate aside, "he's a different kind of an American than virtually any that I know." Nudge nudge, ifyouknowwhatImean.

“My dad and mother taught me a long time ago that you’re known by the company you keep. We should have figured out a lot, and some of us did. When this guy’s friends are Bill Ayers, Bernadine Dohrn, Rev. Jeremiah Wright — his mentor, again, is Saul Alinsky — what do you think you’re going to get?”
Beauprez is in a crowded Republican primary to face Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper in November.
