Green Beret challenges fentanyl decriminalizing opponent to 3 debates hosted by law enforcement 

Former Army Special Forces Green Beret Tyler Allcorn is challenging his opponent Yadira Caraveo to three debates across Colorado’s 8th Congressional District hosted by local law enforcement officials. 

Democrat Yadira Caraveo voted in 2019 to decrease possession of four grams of less of fentanyl to a misdemeanor from a felony. Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen has since said “people are dying” from the 2019 law that was supported by Caraveo. 

In comments obtained by the Greeley Tribune this past Sunday, Caraveo didn’t address whether she regrated her vote or would work to reverse the law during this legislative session. 

“The 8th Congressional District deserves to hear directly from Yadira Caraveo on her support for deadly fentanyl policies and that’s why I’m challenging her to three one-on-one debates across the district hosted by local law enforcement officials like our Police Chiefs and Sheriffs,” Allcorn stated in a press release. “I want Yadira Caraveo to personally tell the people of Commerce City, Thornton, and Greeley why she supports fentanyl policies that are ruining our neighborhoods and killing our neighbors. It’s time to send a Green Beret to Washington to secure our borders, support our heroes in blue, and push back against radical policies like fentanyl decriminalization. I eagerly await her response.”

Allcorn is proposing three debates across the district. One in Commerce City, Thornton, and Greeley. 

Allcorn proposes the Commerce City debate take place on the two-month anniversary of the deadly fentanyl overdose that killed five people. 

The Thornton debate on the five-month anniversary of the “DEA busting a drug distribution ring in Colorado linked to the Sinaloa cartel and led by a Thornton resident who trafficked fentanyl made in China into Colorado through our open southern border with Mexico.”

The Greeley Debate on the first day that mail ballots for the June 28th Primary Election may be mailed to voters.
