Republicans on Saturday elected an all female slate for Colorado’s party leadership — an historic first for the state — with Kristi Burton Brown at the helm as chair, followed by Priscilla Rahn as vice chair, and Marilyn Harris as secretary.
The final ballot count came down to 226 votes for Brown and 154 votes for Scott Gessler, former Secretary of State.
Also running in the first two rounds of voting were Casper Stockham and Rich Mancuso, both former congressional candidates, and communications consultant Jonathan Lockwood.
I am grateful for the votes & trust of the @cologop State Central Committee and thrilled to be our first woman chairman since the 1970s. Our all-woman officer team is a first! Thanks to all who participated today…it will be my honor to serve you as Chairman. #copolitics pic.twitter.com/miH6DkkgQP

Brown pledged leadership that would focus on defeating Democrats instead of divisions among Republican Party members.
“They are the enemy, not each other,” Brown said.
Good luck to the new team in their battle to reclaim the state from King Polis and his Democrat court of state lawmakers.
