And they're off!

There's a reason Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg did what he did: "Quite honestly, because as my son would say, 'Cuz.'"
Sonnenberg presented his horse racing bill to the House Ag Committee Wednesday night. Rep. Judy Solano, D-Brighton, asked why a portion of the proceeds was earmarked for community colleges instead of, say, roads.
That's when Sonnenberg said "Cuz," to the delight of the committee.
"You must have a 14-year-old," Rep. Kathleen Curry, D-Gunnison, said.
"13!" Sonnenberg said, with a big laugh.
Former Nuggets coach Dan Issel was among those who testified on behalf of HB 1152 by Sonnenberg, R-Sterling. The measure passed 8-3 and now is going to the Finance Committee.
