Colorado Republicans will hold their caucuses on Tuesday, February 7 at 7 p.m.  Please arrive by 6:30 pm to register and start on time.

Pre-register: The Colorado GOP has established a statewide Preregistration Process that will verify you are eligible for caucus prior to the meeting:  http://www.caucus.cologop.org/  All you need to do is enter your address and zip code.  There are two benefits:

One, it will tell you your confirmed caucus location.

Two, you will be pre-registered.  Simply print your confirmation form and bring it with your photo i.d. to caucus.  This will save everyone time, as the precinct committee people will not need to find your name on the printed list.

Caucus Training for Republican Voters:  Estes Park Tea Party Patriots held a caucus training meeting on Saturday, January 21, 1 p.m. at the Estes Valley Library.  We reviewed information provided by the Larimer County Republican Party.  We will also discuss the resolution process, which allows caucus attendees to submit proposed resolutions that will be voted on at the higher assemblies.  This is the process that determines the state and national party platforms. The Larimer GOP sponsored two caucus training meetings.  Hopefully these pre-meeting discussions help people run meetings more efficiently than in years past.

Please attend the Republican Caucus February 7, because this meeting will decide who represents your precinct, and who will be delegates to pick local candidates for the Colorado Republican primary ballot.  Let’s ensure the Republican Party elects candidates who are committed to limited government, free enterprise and upholding the U.S. Constitution.

Democrat Caucuses:  Democrats will be holding their caucuses on Tuesday, March 6.  The Larimer County Democrats or the Colorado Democratic Party might provide more information as the date approaches.

This post will be updated as we approach caucus, so check back at this link before February 7.  Also, please e-mail and share this post on Facebook and other social media because it will help us ensure greater citizen participation.

Rick Santorum has been campaigning in Colorado this week, trying to re-establish himself as the conservative challenger to Mitt Romney.  Yesterday in Woodland Park, he stressed that Mitt Romney as the author of “RomneyCare” cannot challenge the President for backing “ObamaCare.”  Santorum is also criticizing Gingrich for his prior support of a health insurance mandate.  Santorum recognizes that countries like Canada are free-riders when it comes to drug development costs.  If the United States stops paying for drug development costs, innovation will be curtailed.

James Dobson appeared with Santorum at a rally in Colorado Springs.  At that appearance Santorum acknowledged that his reputation as a staunch social conservative may have cost him votes in Florida, based upon whether he can beat President Obama in November.  Santorum insisted that the stated positions of both Romney and Gingrich do not differ significantly from his own stated positions.

The Tuesday caucuses have a great potential to shape the GOP Presidential primary.  The Nevada caucus on Saturday is expected to produce a Romney win, due in part to the high percentage of Mormans living in Nevada.

Perry Buck of Windsor announced her candidacy for House District 49 on Wednesday.  On Thursday January 12, Vicki Marble of Fort Collins announced at a meeting of the Larimer County Republican Central Committee that she had decided to run for Senate District 23 and would not challenge Buck in HD 49.  Marble and Buck approached the podium together, with Buck stating that she endorses Marble’s run for State Senate. Marble described the biggest difference between her and Buck as being “our  shoe size.”

Marble’s decision will likely prevent a contested primary in HD 49, but ensure a contested race in SD 23.  Representative Glenn Vaad of House District 48 found himself mapped out of his district by the Democratic reapportionment map.  Vaad also spoke, spoke about his budget record as a Weld County Commissioner.  Weld County has no debts and no county sales tax (in large part due to its oil & gas revenue).

For the 2011 session, Vaad earned a 50.0 rating from the Colorado Union of Taxpayers tied for 23rd out of 33 Republican House members.  (The best House score was an 85.19 by Don Beezley of Broomfield).   Vaad also has declined to sign the CUT Taxpayer Pledge, which can be found in the CUT 2011 legislative ratings.   You can also check out the votes CUT used in constructing its ratings.

The Larimer County Republican Central Committee elected Michael Fassi as its new chairman.  Fassi narrowly defeated Tom Buchanan, current Chairman of the Loveland 9/12 group.  Fassi stressed the importance uniting the Republican Party and raising money to counter the weight of President Obama’s $1 billlion national re-election campaign.
