On Saturday, September 18, 2021, you, and several hundred Republicans, will decide the fate of the Republican Party.
We have a unique opportunity to flip the script and do something that other states, like Virginia, have done to ensure they nominate electable candidates while fighting to maintain election integrity throughout our nomination process.
We get to decide whether to opt out of the open primary system that is currently run by corrupt Democrats and unduly influenced by left-wing unaffiliated voters.
After doing all the research and hearing both sides, for me the conclusion is very clear…
We must opt out now.
By Ben Nicholas
If we opt-out, it is true that the statutes (C.R.S. § 1-4-702(2)) require our party to use the caucus assembly method in the selection of our party’s nominee. The method itself limits the selection of the Republican candidate to only those delegates who have been voted forward through the caucus system. That method will in fact disenfranchise over a million Republican voters who have become accustom to receiving a ballot even though few use them.
