Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora wrote a long apology published in Thursday's Denver Post. Coffman says his comments earlier this month were "boneheaded" and that he should not have questioned Obama's patriotism. Coffman wrote, "I should never have questioned the president's devotion to our country."
Coffman has come under heavy criticism after the comment was released to the media. Coffman faces a re-election in a suburban district that is much more competitive than his current one.
