GOP Candidates Plagued with Ties to Jan. 6th Insurrection and Election Denial

GOP Candidates Plagued with Ties to Jan. 6th Insurrection and Election Denial

Candidate and insurrectionist Ron Hanks leads the GOP Senate primary

The Colorado Republican Party is still knee-deep in election conspiracy one year after the January 6th insurrection. Their frontrunner in the Senate primary, Ron Hanks, actually attended the insurrection and crossed police lines. He’s also parading around the state spreading and fundraising off of Trump’s Big Lie. 

Most of the rest of the candidates in the Senate and gubernatorial races have either defended capitol rioters, amplified the voices of violent conspiracy theorists, or endorsed false claims that there were problems with the 2020 election.

See below for candidate ties to January 6th and election denialism:

Ron Hanks

 

Eli Bremer

 

Gino Campana

  • Campana has repeatedly claimed there were “tons of issues” with the 2020 election and wrote the question of whether he thought it was stolen or not off as a “got you type question.”

 

Deborah Flora

  • Flora has dodged questions about the 2020 election and said she supported Arizona’s politically-motivated “audit.”
  • During her time as a host on conservative radio, she gave a platform to election conspiracy theorists, including Joe Oltmann, and January 6th attendees and had them on as guests. 

 

Heidi Ganahl

 

Danielle Neuschwanger

 

Greg Lopez
