(RNC Committeeman Randy Corporon with Kari Lake in Dana Point, California)
Colorado RNC Committeeman Randy Corporon made his support for Harmeet Dhillon official Thursday night in a series of tweets where he announced he will be voting for Dillon to be the next Chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Campfire Colorado’s original story on Corporon’s decision making process is below:
Colorado RNC Committeeman Randy Corporon is one of 168 Republican National Committee members who will elect the next Chair of the Republican National Committee.
In a report from Dana Point, California that Corporon submitted exclusively to Campfire Colorado’s morning email Campfire Coffee, he says is “leaning strongly” towards “change” in leadership at the RNC.
“I will announce my decision Thursday night after the 2nd candidate forum and final pre-vote meetings with everyone,” said Corporon in his report for Campfire Colorado. “Perhaps it’s the defense lawyer in me, but I can make good arguments for any of the 3 to lead us into 2024. However, I was elected by Colorado Republican voters to be their voice. The vast majority of the maybe 1000 emails I’ve received, many from local constituents, and of the 22,950 who voted in my Twitter poll are asking for change.”
“They’re demanding it really,” Corporon stated. “So, as you can imagine, I am leaning strongly that way.”

Please enjoy this report from Randy you will see nowhere else:
Hello from Dana Point, California. As your Republican National Committeeman, I am one of the 3 Coloradans and 168 Republican National Committee members from around the country who will decide who leads the GOP into the 2024 presidential election cycle.
I have declined to endorse a candidate up until now as I believed it was important for your representative to hear from the candidates and the rest of the 168, to see them and talk to them one on one, and to absorb every piece of information that I have been bombarded with over the last couple of months. That is all happening now.
Today was a candidate forum. Harmeet Dhillon was first and she laid out the need for change along with her 30/60/90-day plans. Her personal history is unique and inspirational, and her litigation skills were on display as she delivered an understated but compelling argument for change and a detailed vision for the future.
Mike Lindell was next and, though he demonstrated no specific knowledge about the job of RNC Chair, he shared a plethora of reasons, experiences, and indicia of successes that would bode well for the Committee and the future if elected. His personal story of overcoming addiction and finding Christ is, likewise, an inspiration, and his track record of tremendous success in the face of adversity, his intense patriotism, and his unquestionable management skill are all compelling.
Ronna McDaniel went last and touted her love for the grassroots volunteers that comprise the 168 (most people don’t know that we are unpaid and responsible for all the costs of our travel, lodging, most food, etc. when we attend meetings to do the business of the Party). She reiterated a litany of impressive RNC changes and successes under her leadership and stated that a change now, heading into the 2024 presidential election, would set the RNC back during the transition. She received a standing ovation from some at the end of her remarks.
If you are interested in hearing a taste of what we all heard on Wednesday, I interviewed all three of the candidates for an hour of my radio show on 710KNUS in Denver. Here’s the link: https://omny.fm/shows/wake-up-with-randy-corporon/wake-up-with-randy-corporon-1-14-23-hr-2
Several party favorites and stars came out. I got to meet both Kari Lake and country music star John Rich. My old friend author/attorney/radio host Kurt Schlicter was there as well. All were in support of a change.
I will announce my decision Thursday night after the 2nd candidate forum and final pre-vote meetings with everyone. Perhaps it’s the defense lawyer in me, but I can make good arguments for any of the 3 to lead us into 2024. However, I was elected by Colorado Republican voters to be their voice. The vast majority of the maybe 1000 emails I’ve received, many from local constituents, and of the 22,950 who voted in my Twitter pollare asking for change.
They’re demanding it really. So, as you can imagine, I am leaning strongly that way. If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or preferences on this or any Republican Party issue, please email me at [email protected].
