Gazette Endorses Barb Kirkmeyer for Congress

The Gazette editorial board has been busy lately endorsing GOP candidates across the state.

In an editorial this morning, they endorsed Senator Barbara Kirkmeyer for Congress in the newly created 8thCongressional District:

“Colorado Republicans’ best bet for winning the state’s newest congressional seat — and for improving their odds of retaking the U.S. House — is state Sen. Barb Kirkmeyer. We urge a vote for her on the June 28 GOP primary ballot.”

Democrats already have lined up their ducks in their bid to capture the seat. They’ve shrewdly cleared the field for one candidate, state House Rep. Yadira Caraveo of Thornton, who now won’t have to face a primary contest.

Meanwhile, four Republicans are running in the primary. While some of them show promise for future political bids, Kirkmeyer has the political stature, extensive experience and all-around gravitas needed to win the 8th in the general election next fall.
