Unaffiliated Voters Unite

Some of my friends know that I have been supporting Marina Zimmerman who is running in a primary race against Lauren Boebert. What you may not know is that Lauren Boebert was invited to speak at Pride Fest, but her campaign declined. As soon as Marina was told about Pride Fest, she said she wanted to come. She had a booth, and came home (she was staying with me) after both days elated about what a great day it was. She expected to be somewhat shunned because she is a Republican, but found inclusion everywhere. Not real surprising because inclusion is one of her campaign themes. The Queens of a popular reality show “We’re Here” were filming at the event. They interviewed Marina, and ended with a group hug. They said they were glad to find a Republican who was intelligent and kind. There is more than one way to dump Boebert, who has already said that she will be running in CD3 regardless of where the new district boundries are. Marina lives near Durango, so every map has her in CD3. The Colorado GOP is voting on September 18 to decide if they will have a primary this year or skip it and only decide on candidates through caucuses. If they keep the Primaries, as is expected, unaffiliated voters can vote in the GOP races. There are two that should interest Mesa County voters… Bobbie Gross to replace Tina Peters and Marina Zimmerman to replace Lauren Boebert. I am an unaffiliated voter.
