Stockham’s Campaign Kickoff Speakers: Tancredo, Beckman, Saine, Ransom

Republican Casper Stockham is kicking off his congressional campaign Saturday with an event featuring speeches by former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, attorney Mark Barrington, former Parker Mayor Greg Lopez, and GOP state lawmakers Susan Beckman of Littleton, Kim Ransom of Littleton, and Lori Saine of Firestone.

In addition to the speakers, the kickoff party will feature “Betsy Ross flag photos,” music and networking, food, and drink (non-alcoholic).

“I’m going to introduce the crowd to my team,” said Stockham. “This time I have a team of about seven people. I’m going to lay out my strategy for winning the race. I have a five-point plan to win that seat back.”

Democratic U.S. Rep. Jason Crow won the 6th Congressional District seat, which includes Aurora, in November, beating Republican incumbent Mike Coffman.

Stockham’s email for the kickoff stated that the event would include “Trump photos.”

Stockham said a likeness of the president would be on hand for photos.

“Not the real thing, not yet,” joked Stockham. “I want him to come to Colorado. And I want him to endorse my campaign. I don’t think he’s a racist. I think he’s doing a great job, or I wouldn’t be running as a Republican.”

The Chief Executive Officer of the Colorado Republican Party, Steve House, told ColoradoPolitics he’s considering running for CD6. House ran for governor in 2014.

Stockham says he expects a primary with multiple candidates, and he’s looking forward to it.

Stockham’s kickoff event takes place tomorrow, Saturday, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at 6870 South Dallas Way in Greenwood Village.

    If Steve House runs, I’m in!

      Do you mean you would be in as a candidate, one of Casper's ghosts, or a House builder?  Inquiring minds want some clarity on your position, Pear.

      House is not exactly Moderatus' BFF. You think this will get you the coveted endorsement from Fluffy?

      I for one am still hoping you don't waste your time on CD 6, and instead primary that spineless RINO, Cory Gardner.

  2. Conserv. Head Banger says:

    Casper's campaign slogan might be: "If I can't win in one congressional district (1st), I'll try my luck in another (6th)."

    Wasn't Barrington the sacrificial lamb who ran against Perlmutter last year with those ghastly yard signs with blood-covered hands of children depicted on them?

  4. JohnInDenver says:

    I do encourage you to go read the Ballotpedia "Candidate Connection" that Stockham submitted.  It includes some eccentric answers … but the following stood out:

    Is there a particular representative, past or present, whom you want to model yourself after?

    Ken Buck.

    In fairness to Stockham, at least his candidacy isn't an utter joke, like that Edwards guy who couldn't even get on the ballot against Coffman.
