While Congressman Lamborn was in Washington, DC tonight, voters across southern Colorado made their voices heard in the Republican primary.
“Tonight’s result show that thousands of¬†Republicans¬†and¬†Unaffiliated¬†voters across our district are tired of Congressman Lamborn’s lack of¬†leadership and accomplishments throughout his 20 years as a career politician,” said Halter. ¬†‚ÄúI am running for office because I believe that our Congress is broken and it is time for new leadership in Washington.¬† This election is not about party; it is about who can change Washington: someone who has been there for years, or someone with a proven record of leadership outside of politics.‚ÄĚ
For the past year, Halter has been traveling the district, meeting with voters, and listening to their concerns.¬† He is running on a moderate, mainstream platform, focused on creating jobs and improving the economy in our region. ¬†He has said he is willing to stand up to others in his own party on building the Keystone Pipeline and believes the Affordable Care Act is unaffordable.
‚ÄúFor the Republicans and Unaffiliated voters who cast a ballot for Bentley Rayburn, I too agree that our district has been underserved by a Congressman who has become part of the problem in Washington.¬† I share your frustration that we lack a leader who will engage with his constituents – especially the local business¬†community.‚ÄĚ
Halter promised to continue traveling throughout the district and meeting with voters of all parties wherever they live.¬† He looks forward to hearing their concerns and ideas for changing how Washington works.
