Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Joe O’Dea has officially qualified to appear on the June primary ballot through the petition process according to his campaign.
In a press release, the O’Dea campaign said, “This afternoon, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold confirmed that Republican candidate for United State Senate, Joe O’Dea, submitted a sufficient number of signatures to appear on the primary ballot on Tuesday, June 28, 2022.”
O’Dea celebrated the important milestone by saying, “we submitted over 16,000 valid signatures from Republicans across this state. We have the message, the team, and the momentum to win this race. Joe Biden’s puppet Senator, Michael Bennet, isn’t getting the job done. He has failed to stand up to the elitist fringe of his party and Coloradans are paying the price at the gas pump, on their heating bills, in the grocery store, and even when they try to buy their first home. This year, we will throw Michael Bennet’s retirement party. Let’s roll.”
O’Dea is the first U.S. Senate candidate to qualify for the ballot and the only one to do so at this time. Every other candidate is pursuing ballot access through the assembly process in Colorado Springs this upcoming Saturday.
