In the long-term battle for liberty, limited government and Constitutional Founding principles, it is crucial to focus attention and energy on this year’s election for state legislative seats. Among other things, these candidates bring the opportunity to change majorities before redistricting begins and strengthen the bench for future runs at higher office.
Those who follow my writings here are familiar with my analyses of Colorado’s 2010 state senate and state house races. In the same spirit, I was very pleased to see my friend and Republican national committeeman / former state treasurer Mark Hillman start a new feature on his “Capitol Review” email updates:
This year, you’re hearing much about candidates for federal office, but reversing the course of our state is also vitally important in this pivotal election year. Between now and election day, please let me draw your attention to candidates for the State House or Senate who need our help – even if we don’t live in their district – because we need them to replace a tax-hiking, nanny-state incumbent Democrat.
The first feature candidate is Owen Hill, a candidate for State Senate against liberal Senate Majority Leader John Morse in El Paso County. Owen is an outstanding young man with a solid foundation rooted in liberty, responsibility, faith and family. In other words, he’s the polar opposite of his opponent!
Please take just a few minutes to visit Owen’s webpage and consider helping him – even with a small donation. Remember, he will be fighting against an avalanche of money from liberal billionaires and labor unions.
If you’re not already on Mark’s email list — from which you receive occasional messages with his insightful commentary — you really should sign up here. I look forward to his future state legislative candidate recommendations.
