And the icing on the cake? The keynote speaker was Congressman Ken Buck, co-author of Drain the Swamp: How Washington Is Worse Than You Think.

Nevertheless, news stations like CBS Denver still covered the publicity stunt as if it were a large grassroots event. Given how much time they got on the local nightly news, AFP is probably raving the event was a success. They may not be wrong. Apparently all AFP has to do is throw burgers on the grill, bring out two dozen staffers and supporters, roll out their bought and paid for Republican representatives for a quick speech and primetime nightly news is happy to amplify their message to the masses.
