Face The State yesterday featured a campaign money breakdown for what figures to be Colorado’s hottest state legislative race – and quite possibly a bellwether for others across the state – and that’s Senate District 19:
In Jefferson County’s closely contested Senate District 19, Democrat Evie Hudak has started raking in union cash, while Republican Libby Szabo has seen her large-donor support come mostly from pro-business organizations and the state’s energy providers.
Libby Szabo is a personal friend and a common sense conservative with plenty of real-world experience in raising a family and running a business. Unfortunately, I live just outside her district and can’t vote for Libby. But I’m glad to commend her to readers, especially those looking for a local Colorado candidate they can get behind and perhaps contribute a little money to:
â€œPeople in my district believe in me so much that theyâ€™re willing to support me financially even in times of economic uncertainty,â€ Szabo said. â€œThat truly means a lot to me. Itâ€™s one thing when millionaires donate money to campaigns, but when average citizens donate their hard-earned cash, that really means something.â€
Knowing Libby, I’d say these words are sincere. Though to many she’s a political unknown, she has done a lot of the right things to put herself in a position to win this November. And when you consider the nature of the opposition, it makes this campaign more imperative than most for freedom-loving conservatives who believe in limited government and personal responsibility.
Consider finding a way to show your support for Libby Szabo.
