Rep. Richard Holtorf fights for the PEOPLE

Colorado Republican Rep. Richard Holtorf is in a league of his own and a force to be reckoned with at the Capitol.
 
In a Q&A with Colorado Politics, Rep. Holtorf discusses his unlikely political career and how he prioritizes fighting for the PEOPLE over the ridiculous political games played by politicians at the Capitol:
 
“Richard Alonso Holtorf never sought political office. It sought him.
 
The Akron-based representative for House District 64 was content to work on his Buffalo Springs ranch, until Rep. Kimmi Lewis, R-Kim, passed away in December 2019 from breast cancer.
 
Even though he had no elected experience and wasn’t particularly active in the Republican Party, several people sought him out to apply for the vacancy left by Lewis’ passing. He was one of five – and not even close to being the favorite for the seat.
 
But that election brought the rough-and-tumble and often controversial lawmaker to the state Capitol, where he’s viewed by some in a league of his own. One person recently told Colorado Politics that there are the Democrats, Republicans and Rep. Holtorf.”
