This weekend, the Colorado Republican Party held their state rally in Colorado Springs.

For those of us who care about American democracy, this is not a good thing.

In the US Senate race, Ripa. Ron Hanks, a hard-core conservative candidate who believes the 2020 election was rigged and actually attended the January 6, 2021 rally in Washington that later turned violent in the U.S. Capitol, jumped into the Assembly and dropped five from the June 28 primary ballot. Other competitors. Ron Hanks is vying for the U.S. Senate on an unnecessary platform to rewrite the 2020 election history and restore Donald Trump to office by any means.

Every voter in Colorado knows who Ron Hanks is and what he stands for. Help us accomplish this with your grant at ProgressNow Colorado.

In the race for governor, Heidi suffered another humiliating defeat to “The Hippocrates” Ganahal, losing the assembly race to Greg Lopez.-Criminal-convicted candidate who won the legislature after promising to pardon has accused Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters of criminal charges against him for rigging election equipment in a failed attempt to prove Donald Trump should still be president.

And then Clark Tina Peters, who is running for Secretary of State despite her criminal allegations, won 60% of the vote in that race and is in the top line in the June 28 primary ballot. In the run-up to the Attorney General’s visit, a previously unknown candidate received 42% of the vote, backing only Clark Peters. District Attorney John Kellner, whom we requested last week for an ethical inquiry to refuse to prosecute the campaigner for misconduct, [1] The Republicans were now desperately trying to stay out of the race by a candidate who was almost the best.

The results of this weekend’s rally show once again how dangerous right-wingers remain in Colorado, even after losing elections at every level. The candidates we see from the right in 2022 are the worst in nearly two decades of Progressive New Colorado in this state, and if they are elected it will be an unparalleled disaster.

That’s why ProgressNow Colorado is preparing to hold every level of government accountable in this crucial year in protecting the transformational gains we’ve made. We know that the progressive victories of the last few years are not the result of hard work, but an election far from destroying everything we have created in this state. We were founded in 2003 to carry out this work and it is no less important today.

We would not have been able to do this without you. Help us hold the line for wisdom in 2022.
