From the Chairman of Denver County

The last three cycles have shown that Colorado is a blue state. The 3 Ms: Messaging, Money, Machine.

Most unaffiliateds gravitated to the Democrats. The Democrats put on the labels and they stuck. They took advantage of the Roe‑v‑Wade decision and their abortion message.

We have become complacent with our own ideas. We focused on our opponents as people and not our ideas.

For Denver: Good and active candidates matter.

We were out funded by millions of Democrat dollars. The governor spent his typical millions and the Democrats rode his coattails.

Polis Tracer reporting through the most recent period is as follows. Contributions $12,738,707.48 and expenditures of $12,124,396.65. Most of it was his own money.

Ganahl raised $2,302,255.75. She also wrote a $1,300,202.00 loan to her campaign. Currently, totals for her campaign sit at $3,158,191.79.

Through the last Tabor reporting cycle, the Denver Democrats raised $160,917.78. They spent $168,824.51 on the 2022 election.

The Denver Republican Committee raised $47,683.90. Our affliate spent $37,002.28 on election related expenditures.

We were overwhelmed by the Democrat's machine. We need to move beyond our anger and numbness. We need to refocus and re‑energize. We need to change our message to express our values. The upcoming year gives us opportunities to fill the many vacancies in our organization. Let us use focus groups and committees to reach out to the young and Latinos in our community. Our plan is to take advantage of all the technology and electronic media that is available to us. And, to recruit and prepare strong candidates in 2024.

Keep an eye out for our future newsletters as we start to address all of these opportunities.
