    Brewer Coors Confirms He'll Run for U.S. Senate
    By Judith Crosson and Keith Coffman

    DENVER (Reuters) - Conservative brewing magnate Peter Coors officially launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate on Tuesday to replace retiring fellow Republican Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell in Colorado, a key state in the party's efforts to maintain control of Congress.

    Surrounded by family members from the well-known and politically conservative Coors clan and introduced by Campbell as his worthy successor, Peter Coors promised to help the jobless get back to work and to cut taxes.

    "So, what's first on my agenda? -- jobs and a stronger economy," the 57-year-old father of six told about 75 supporters on the steps of the state capitol.

    "I'm a tax cutter," he said, "because I believe Coloradans know best how to spend their own money."

    Coors. Watery beer, weak conservatism. I spit it all out.
