The National Debt
Bits and Pieces
Some of the beautiful Republicans at our April 17th meeting!
Many members of Longmont Republican Women were honored to be elected as Delegates to represent their precincts at the CD2 or CD4 Assemblies, held in Broomfield on April 11th, and to represent Boulder County at the Colorado State Assembly, held on April 12th on the CU campus in Boulder.
At the assemblies, the candidates were nominated by their friends, families and/or constituents, and often had groups of supporters with them on the stage. While most of the delegates had decided prior to the assembly which candidate they would support, sometimes that decision was verified as much by who was standing with the candidates as by the speeches they gave.
In order to have their name on the primary ballot for the GOP, candidates needed to receive at least 30% of the votes cast by the delegates for their particular race. The results of the elections held at the Assemblies are as follows, and in bold are the people that will be on the primary ballots for the Republican Party in June.
Candidate for United States Representative to Colorado's 2nd Congressional District:
George Leing (74% of the vote)
Candidates for United States Representative to Colorado's 4th Congressional District:
Scott Renfroe (53.8%)
Candidate for United States Senate
Cory Gardner (73.62%)
Candidates for Governor of Colorado
Mike Kopp (33.6%)
Cynthia Coffman (69%)
It was exciting to be surrounded by so many wonderful Republican Patriots from all over the state and to hear from such qualified candidates for all positions. Naturally, not all candidates were able to be elected to the primary ballot, but there were no losers this weekend. Some have had their paths changed, and their newly enriched leadership skills will be used in another capacity. We all will be the richer if we act upon the the concerns and conclusions brought forth by all of the candidates. Let's Roll!

Well, how 'bout that! The National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) selected our website as the Website of the Week for June 12, 2011, citing our overall tone and content, and in particular Prez Peg Cage's articles in Cage's Corner, the Events Page, the Precint Tools, and our Members-Only Section (Peg Cage gave them quick, temporary access to it.) They gave kudos to us (the prez and the webmaster) and we give kudos to our FABULOUS MEMBERS for their inspiration! Read all about it on the NFRW site here.
