Republicans "are not American," should "stay away from our country," and could be "more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia," said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

At a packed Democratic fundraiser in Colorado on Tuesday night, the 2004 presidential candidate also accused conservatives of propagating the politics of "anger," "hate," and "division," and said the GOP is trying to suppress voting because of their support of voter ID laws, the Colorado Statesman reported.

"This country has been sold down the river by the right wing for their own purposes," Dean told an enthusiastic crowd of 750 supporters of Democratic congressional candidate Andrew Romanoff, a former speaker of the Colorado House.

Story continues below video.



"This is a Republican Party that has decided they like power so much that they think it's OK to win by taking away the right to vote. They are not American. They could be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia. But stay away from our country, this is based on the right to vote."

Dean characterized Romanoff's opponent, GOP Rep. Mike Coffman, as "right wing," adding, "We have had enough of the extreme right wing. We have had enough of the politics of anger, we have had enough of the politics of hate, we have had enough of the politics of division."

The House race for Colorado's 6th Congressional District is expected to be one of the country's most hard-fought and expensive campaigns in the 2014 cycle, and PACs on both sides of the political spectrum have identified the race as one of two dozen that will receive millions of dollars in advertising in the run-up to November.
