Frazier Statement on Republican Primary Win

Wheat Ridge, CO – Ryan Frazier, the Republican nominee for the 7th Congressional District, released the following statement on his primary win. Lang Sias called Frazier earlier tonight to concede the election. He will take on incumbent Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Golden) in November.

“Our campaign has the best supporters and volunteers in Colorado. There is no way I would be the Republican nominee for the 7th Congressional District without their tireless support. Now, we embrace the hard work required to win in November, by earning the confidence of the people throughout our district."

“My fellow veteran and primary opponent, Lang Sias, ran a strong and principled campaign. His dedication to our great nation will ensure he continues to serve. Lang and I share common beliefs in limited government, lower taxes, a strong national defense, and the goal of defeating Ed Perlmutter in November. I hope Lang, and his supporters, will continue their commitment to conservative values and help us carry forward our message of a strong economy and fiscal responsibility to a win in the general election."

“The people have spoken tonight. I'm asking Americans of all backgrounds to Believe Again. They no longer want Washington insiders burdening future generations with mountains of debt. They don’t believe we can tax and spend our way to economic prosperity. They don’t believe new government powers and regulations create jobs and wealth. Instead, they want a fresh voice and a new way forward. They want to believe our children and grandchildren will have more opportunities and a better quality of life than previous generations. We must believe again so that together we can build a better future."

“Colorado needs a real representative of the people – not a congressman that’s out of touch with his constituents. Free markets, less spending, lower taxes, and investing in innovation will create jobs and get our economy back on track. In Congress, I will fight for common-sense policies that tighten Washington's belt and restore long-term fiscal discipline to our budget. Our families need representatives who will put America first.”
