    BOULDER — State Treasurer Walker Stapleton and businessman Greg Lopez, a former mayor of Parker, won spots in Colorado’s Republican gubernatorial primary Saturday at the GOP’s state assembly.

    Stapleton took top line on the June primary ballot, with 44 percent of the delegate vote — just four days after asking state officials to reject petitions that had already qualified him for the primary, citing concerns that some of his signatures had been gathered fraudulently.

    “I am a common sense Colorado conservative who wants to be your next governor,” Stapleton said to the thousands of Republicans inside the Coors Event Center on the University of Colorado campus.

    Lopez received 33 percent of the vote — more than the 30 percent needed to qualify for the ballot.

    But Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, one of five other Republicans asking delegates for votes, received just 5 percent, keeping her from the ballot — a stunning reversal from the state assembly four years ago in the same arena, when she took top line in the attorney general race with nearly 70 percent of the vote.

    Colorado Republican Caucus Frequently Asked Questions

    What is the caucus?

    Caucuses are precinct-level gatherings of voters that take place across Colorado. In 2018, the Republican caucuses will take place on Tuesday, March 6, at 7 pm.

    What happens at the caucus?

    Caucus-goers elect delegates and alternates to various assemblies. These can include county, state house, state senate, county ommission, state, congressional, and judicial assemblies. In some counties, caucus-goers elect delegates and alternates only to the county ssembly, and those delegates, in turn, elect delegates to the higher assemblies; in other counties, delegates to the higher assemblies are elected provisionally at the caucus and ratified at the county assembly. Read more …

  • As the caucus date of Tuesday, March 6 draws closer, the Colorado Republican Party will distribute information about how to find your precinct location, what happens at the caucus, and how it interacts with the primary.

    Today, we’re writing because, per state law, voters must be registered as Republicans by Monday, January 8 to participate in the caucus.

    Don’t discover a problem too late! Take two minutes right now and make sure you’re registered as a Republican at your correct address by visitingwww.GoVoteColorado.com.

     

  • “The caucus process in Colorado – the process that elected me as a National Delegate – is one of the most grassroots in the nation. I was elected as the youngest woman national delegate from Colorado. Our system empowers the average citizen and political outsiders. I’m a conservative, pro-life Christian attorney and journalist who is also a Ted Cruz supporter. When I go to Cleveland, I’ll take you with me and give you an inside view of the process.”- A young delegate in Colorado

  • In a recent online posting, Colorado Republican Chairman Steve House shared this message:

    “In reflecting over the weekend and reviewing all the stuff in the news last week that is negative about The Colorado Republican Party, most of it blatantly untrue, I got really upset about the harsh rhetoric regarding “insiders” in the party. So who are these “insiders” in Colorado? Almost all of them are people who volunteer countless hours as county chairman, county officers, PCP’s, District Captains, and other roles who just happen to have been doing it for years because they care so much about our country.

    They are also the people who went to caucus, just like they always do, who are also called activists because they work hard when they don’t have to, and many label them anti-establishment. They ran for delegate to county, congressional, and state assemblies. These activists don’t usually seek power they seek results, they believe in the principles of lower taxes, limited government, and greater freedom and they work to deliver that through volunteering their time, talent and resources. These aren’t people who work in the state capitol or Washington DC. They are people who live in places like Ouray, Otero, Phillips, and Moffat counties. They are people like Anil, our county chairman in Adams county who is always fighting uphill against a democrat machine with greater numbers and he does it while doing a full time job, raising a family and doing prison ministry as well. They are people like Janell Reid in Lincoln County who has given 36 years of her life to the county party as its leader not because she seeks to manipulate or control anyone, but because she cares and few if any will take on the responsibility.

    There are examples in every county and in every geography in our state of people like this who the outside world is calling “insiders” who they think manipulated or stole someone’s vote. All we did here is to follow the rules as they are written in state law and party bylaws and nothing makes me more angry then to see individuals who finally woke up and then decided to criticize the very people that have been keeping them from being a socialist nation in the first place just because they didn’t like the outcome or process of an election here.

    In conclusion: If you feel like you have the need to criticize any of us who donate our time to stop the liberal progressive machine from making America worse; then criticize, but you better be prepared to jump in and actually help solve the problem because the rest of us have been in the game fighting the battle for you too long for you to jump off your couch and scream at us just because you read some sensationalized story on Drudge that isn’t true and you aren’t interested in looking for the facts first. We need to do some things better but before you criticize these great people and push them out of the jobs they volunteer for you better be prepared to backfill them in those roles or we won’t win elections regardless of who our candidates are. Who will you blame then?

    I am proud of the county organizations we have across the state and the staff we have at the state party for what they do on a daily basis to try and get good people elected. Thank you to all our volunteers, county officers, PCP’s, District Captains, donors and supporters for what you do. We know the truth and we appreciate what you do and what you endure.”

    Setting the Record Straight about Colorado’s Republican Caucus

    “All Colorado Republicans [registered more than a month] could vote in precinct caucuses, which chose delegates to congressional and state conventions, who voted for national delegates.” That’s my (unabbreviated) Tweet summarizing the way that Colorado Republicans chose delegates to the national Republican Convention. I should know; as a Colorado Republican I participated in the caucuses.

    But apparently, for some Trump supporters, my experience participating in the caucus process is no match for a Drudge headline claiming it never happened. As of the evening of April 10, Drudge claimed on its main page, “Fury as Colorado has no primary or caucus; Cruz celebrates voterless victory.”

    So let’s set the facts straight, beginning with my own experiences with the caucus system.

    After long being an unaffiliated voter, I registered as a Republican voter late last year, in part so that I could participate in Colorado’s Republican caucus system this year. (I plan to remain a Republican, barring an unforeseen major shift in the political scene.) I looked up how to participate in my precinct caucus on March 1, showed up, participated in the meeting, and successfully ran as an alternate delegate to the county convention on March 19 and to the state convention on April 9.

    Interestingly, in my precinct, I’m pretty sure that not a single person had participated in the caucus system before. We were all “outsiders.” We even had to ask one of the party organizers to step in for a while to help us figure out the process. But we worked it out and got along fine. We even had a very civil discussion about the presidential candidates; one fellow was strongly for Trump, while several of us were strongly against him. (I only know the views of those who expressed them.)

    AURORA Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz took the first six national delegates awarded in Colorado, winning all the seats elected at two congressional district conventions Saturday.

    Of the six delegates and six alternates elected, 10 pledged support to the Texas senator and two is unpledged.

    Donald Trump supporters made loud noise at the conventions and John Kasich put formed a three-delegate slate — but both candidates were shut out.

    The overwhelming win showcased the Cruz campaign’s months-long efforts behind the scenes in Colorado, led by U.S. Rep. Ken Buck withhelp from grassroots organizations, Gun Owners of America and the Faith and Freedom Coalition.
