When Colorado Republicans gather on Friday for the GOP’s annual big fundraising event, dubbed the “2022 Century Dinner,” they will have the opportunity to eat, drink and enjoy the political songs of right-wing congressmen. Andy Biggs Arizona.
As Ernest Luning Report for a publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman:
“Congressman Biggs is a respected conservative who is fighting every day to stop the failed biden agenda imposed by Michael Bennett and Jared Police,” State Republican Party Chair Christy Burton Brown told the Democratic U.S. Senator and Governor of Colorado, respectively. , Who are running in this year’s elections …
মধ্যে One of the most vocal supporters of former President Donald Trump in Congress, Biggs is one of the top campaigners in the unproven controversy that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Trump. Last fall, after concluding a controversial, biased election review conducted in Arizona’s largest county, Biggs told a congressional hearing that despite conclusions from audits that Biden won Arizona, no one knows whether Trump or President Joe Biden ran the state.
Including “Andy Biggs” and “Respected Conservative” in the same sentence is a lot like making peanut butter sandwiches with mustard, but whatever.
What would Biggs tell his Colorado Republican audience? Luning reported in a subsequent tweet that it was a mystery:
It is possible RepAndyBiggsAZ Will explain Collagop Donors equate Soviet-style communism with how a privately owned company used its First Amendment rights when he delivered a keynote address at a centennial dinner on Friday, but it is closed to the press, so we will never know. https://t.co/vLkySENyQd

Arizona Republic Biggs and fellow Republicans recently announced the congressman Paul Gosser As the “proud Putin branch of the Arizona GOP.” Biggs and Gossar were just a few of the Republicans – a list that includes Colorado Republicans. Lauren “Q * Bert” Boebert – To vote against the bill banning the import of oil and gas from Russia. Biggs and Boebert also opposed recent legislation suspending normal trade relations with Russia.
Biggs is closely associated with the “Stop the Steel” rally that stormed the US Capitol on January 6, 2021; He publicly suggested that the rebellion was indeed an act of antipathy. Inviting Biggs to be the keynote speaker on the biggest night of the year is a strange choice for Republicans who are otherwise trying to avoid talking about “Big Lie” in 2022.
In fact, the more we think about it, the less strange it seems that Colorado Republicans are putting Andy Biggs at the top of their program. Remember again in March 2020 when Rep. Why talk (R-Greeley) Was one of only two Republicans to vote against the first big COVID-19 relief bill? Guess who else voted ‘no’?
Would it be a real surprise, then, if the state representative. Ron Hanks The Republicans make it to the early June ballot for the U.S. Senate a day after meeting for their state legislature? Hanks is a UG spokesman for “Big Lie” and even uses home-made rebel footage in his campaign ads. He’s the kind of candidate who would support someone like Biggs.
It will be interesting to see if any of Colorado’s top 2022 Republican candidates try to avoid meeting Biggs. It would be even more difficult to avoid the annual “centennial dinner” if the El Paso County Republican Party invited a Georgia representative last summer.
