    Declaring that he wants to “remake the Republican Party into a strong, conservative organization” that can start winning elections again, election law attorney Scott Gessler, a former Colorado secretary of state and gubernatorial candidate, announced Monday that he’s running to chair the state GOP.

    “Success will not be handed to us,” Gessler said in email launching his campaign, which has been anticipated for months.

    “Doing the same thing over and over won’t make what’s happening go away. To win again, the Colorado Republican Party requires a new direction. It needs to be fearless. Unapologetic. Effective. Defeating the left-wing political/media/big tech matrix will be hard work. But we can do it — and put Colorado back on the path of freedom, prosperity, and justice.”

    The 55-year-old Army veteran served one term as secretary of state from 2011-2015 and mound an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2014, when he finished third in a four-way primary.

    The state GOP elects officers to two-year terms at its central committee meeting in late March, following country reorganization meetings that take place in February.

    State Republican Party Chairman U.S. Rep. Ken Buck said in December that he won’t seek a second term.
