Calls for Unity, Reminds Importance of This Year’s Election
GOLDEN – Republican Congressional candidate Joe Coors accepted the party’s designation to the ballot this evening at the 7th Congressional District Assembly held at the JeffersonCounty Fairgrounds.
“I’m running for Congress because the wasteful federal deficit spending that is bankrupting our future must stop now,” Coors said in his nomination speech. Coors also highlighted his job creating experience, as well as his priority to put the wishes of the voters first, as reasons for running for office.
Surrounded by his family and campaign supporters, Coors called for unity and reminded assembly attendees of the importance of this year’s election.
“I want to offer everyone in this room a challenge,” said Coors. “We all know that this race is too important to get caught up in the splinters that divide us. I want to challenge everyone to unite and focus on keeping our eyes on the prize: Getting tax-and-spend Democrats like Ed Perlmutter out of office this year.”
Nominators for Coors were Colorado Republican Party Vice Chair and Jefferson County Republican County Chairman Don Ytterberg and State Representative for House District 27 Libby Szabo (R-Arvada).
With tonight’s assembly results, the Colorado Republican Party will designate Coors onto to the primary ballot on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at the Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention. The state primary is on June 26, 2012.
