The Colorado Republican Party is just days away from finalizing the ballot of candidates who will compete against each another in the June 28 primary for the chance to take on Democrat Gov. Jarod Polis in the November election. 

Heidi Ganahl is the only Republican candidate going through both the party assembly process and petitioning onto the ballot.

Ganahl’s petition was approved this week. Now she needs at least 10% of the party’s support at the state assembly and convention on Saturday in Colorado Springs. 

As an at-large member of the University of Colorado Board of Regents, Ganahl is the only candidate in this race who has won political office statewide as a Republican, since Democrats began infiltrating every nook and cranny of elected office.

We expect Ganahl should easily earn the required 10%, if not more to make the ballot.

Also expected to make a run for the gubernatorial ballot at the state assembly: Zachariah Burck, Laurie Clark, Jack Dillender, Jeff Fry, Darryl Gibbs, Jon Gray-Ginsburg, Greg Lopez, Danielle Neuschwanger and Jason Wilkat.

Burck is a Christian millennial and Colorado native who serves in the Air Force reserves.

Clark currently serves as a Monument Trustee, having been elected in 2018.

Dillender recently moved to Colorado, and is a self-described healer from Crestone.

Fry is a gas consultant from Hayden.

Gibbs is a truck driver from Aurora and in the Air Force Reserves.

Gray-Ginsberg is an engineer from Frisco.

Lopez is a former mayor of Parker and small business owner.

Neuschwanger is an Elbert County rancher. 

Wilkat is a small business owner in Weld County.

The candidates most likely to qualify for the ballot in addition to Ganahl on Saturday are Lopez and Neuschwanger, whom the Colorado media have been bashing of late because of past arrest records.

Not ironic at all but rather commonplace, is the failure of the same media to ever report on Polis’s own police report.

PeakNation™ will recall the police report describing the incident in his office in 1999, in which Polis basically assaulted his 46-year old secretary after she quit.

Here’s a rundown on what happened:

“In an incident at his office in 1999, Jared Polis who was then Jared Schutz, refused to let his assistant leave the office because he believed she had sensitive files. She felt threatened, but Polis would not let her dial 911 she claims. Then in the altercation, Polis ultimately shoved her and caused her to fall back into a filing cabinet where she sustained bruises on her arms and leg. The bruises she sustained were inconsistent with Polis’ statement that he just blocked her from leaving the office, according to uncovered Boulder police reports. The woman then filed for a temporary restraining order because she felt she was at risk for ‘serious bodily harm.’”

Good luck to the Republican candidates on Saturday, and in the June primary.

Colorado is in desperate need of a new leader, and this group of folks is our only hope.
