Bremer calls for Tina Peters to suspend her campaign for Secretary of State in wake of her indictment
Peters should be presumed innocent in a court, not on the ballot
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) – Eli Bremer today called for Tina Peters to suspend her campaign for Secretary of State in the wake of her indictment by a Grand Jury in Mesa County.
“I’m sure Clerk Peters believes she acted appropriately throughout this process and that she is being unfairly attacked,” stated Bremer. “She is a Gold Star mom whose family has paid a dear price for our nation. Clerk Peters deserves to be presumed innocent and has the right to due process. If she wishes to prove her innocence, the place for that is in a court of law not on the ballot.
“Running for statewide office while under indictment is not appropriate. Republicans must show that we offer serious solutions to serious problems our country is facing due to Democratic policies. Clerk Peters is simply in no position to be a credible statewide candidate for Republicans while under criminal investigation."
