‘Dems tried to meddle in R primary in CO. The result?’: NOT GOOD!


On Tuesday, many primary races took place across the country, including in Colorado, where Democrats made news for meddling in Republican primaries, a move in violation of state and federal law, which backfired terribly. Overall, Democrats looked to have spent what looks to be $14 million, including an estimated $10 million in the Senate race.

Through several different channels, Democrats attempted to meddle in races for governor, as well as U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Each one of the candidates that they attempted to prop up lost.

Despite efforts from Democrats to meddle, Heidi Ganahl beat Greg Lopez to become the Republican gubernatorial nominee, winning 53.83 percent of the vote compared to Lopez’s 46.17 percent. When it comes to the Senate, Joe O’Dea beat Ron Hanks by nearly nine percentage points, 54.46 percent to Hanks’ 45.54 percent. As of Friday, an estimated 91 percent of the vote has been reported.

In the 8th Congressional District, Barbara Kirkmeyer won with 40.9 percent of the vote. Lori Saine, who was boosted by Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC, came in third out of four candidates, with 19.9 percent of the vote.

Particularly newsworthy is how Democrats broke state law by sending mailers to meddle in the Senate race. As Colorado GOP Chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown explained to Townhall, fake mailers claimed that the Colorado Republican Party endorsed a particular primary candidate, which it does not. Further, the mailers did not disclose where they came from, which is in violation of federal law. The mailers even had a logo that made it look as if they were coming from the Colorado Republican Party. It’s a violation of state law to deceive voters about where mailers are coming from.

The Democratic Governor’s Association took credit for meddling in the governor’s race, and the Colorado Democratic Party was also involved in meddling. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) also spoke about spending money.
