March 1, 2022
(COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) – Today, Eli Bremer announced the endorsement of four former leaders of the Colorado State House and State Senate. Kevin Grantham, Former State Senator & Senate President, CO – Senate District 02, currently serving as Fremont County Commissioner. Mark Waller, Former El Paso County Commissioner, State Representative, and House Minority Leader CO – House District 15. Tim Blickensderfer, Former State Senator & State Senate Majority Leader CO – Senate District 26. Amy Stephens, Former State Representative & House Majority Leader CO District 19.
Speaking on behalf of the group, former Senate President Kevin Grantham issued the following statement:
“Republicans have an incredible opportunity in this election. Not only do we have a Republican wave election coming, but we have a fantastic candidate who will capitalize on this wave, in Eli Bremer. Eli is a lifelong Coloradan and represents the best of Colorado and the best of our party.
“He has twice worn the uniform in representation of the United States. Once on behalf of Team USA in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and as a commissioned officer for the United States Air Force. He is CO through and through, unlike Michael Bennet who carries the water for Washington D.C. Democrats but not for Coloradans.
“As elected Republicans in the state, we have all benefited from Eli’s selfless support of our candidacies for over a decade. Eli has a tenacious work ethic and an ability to win in difficult circumstances. Eli is not only our best chance to win the election, but he will also be the best Senator once elected.”

In response, Bremer stated “I’m thrilled to have the trust and support of these great Republican leaders who have represented us in state government over the past few decades. These political leaders all have experience representing Coloradans and winning tough races. Having them believe in and endorse my campaign is humbling and encouraging. I look forward to, with their help, ending one-party rule and once again giving Republicans a significant say in how to best govern Colorado.”

Tom Blickensderfer of Eaglewood, CO served as the CO Senate Majority Leader from 1999-2000. Amy Stephens of Monument, CO served as the CO House Majority Leader from 2010-2012.
