Casper Stockham, Republican candidate for Colorado’s First Congressional District, isn’t getting any love from twenty-year incumbent Democrat Dianna DeGette. In fact, she won’t agree to even face him in a debate.
Team Casper has reached out to DeGette numerous times and proposed no fewer than six possible debate times between now and the end of September, but they have been met with silence from the DeGette camp.
So Stockham is upping his game with a campaign tactic never seen before in Colorado: a catered sit in at DeGette’s Denver office. Supporters are urged to bring lawn chairs and a hearty appetite. According to the candidate’s Facebook page, there will be a wide ranging menu, including bagels, sushi, pizza, and Chick-fil-A.
The event will happen this today, August 12, at DeGette’s 6th and Grant office, from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. Be there or be nowhere, PeakNation™.
