CO: State GOP picks Big Lie whackjob for chair

Source: Axios

“The Colorado Republican Party’s new leader believes Donald Trump won the 2020 election and considers Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell a ‘feckless leader.’ The party’s roughly 400-member central committee selected Dave Williams, a former state representative who challenged incumbent GOP congressman in 2022 and lost, as the party’s new chair. Williams, an ardent Trump supporter and anti-abortion advocate, won on the third vote at the party’s meeting in Loveland after being endorsed by Tina Peters, the indicted former Mesa County election chief. In the first two votes, no candidate reached 50%. … Williams is known for his showmanship politics. He attempted to make the slogan ‘Let’s Go Brandon,’ a slur against President Biden, part of his name on the 2022 ballot.” (03/11/23)
