As you may have seen in the news this weekend, right-wing CU Regent Heidi Ganahl announced she’s running for governor of Colorado.

But wait, you ask. Didn’t that already happen?

And the answer is, yes it did! But Ganahl’s first launch of her campaign last September was such a dismal failure that she had to “re-launch” her campaign Saturday. Unfortunately for everyone, Ganahl’s “new” campaign is the same old hypocrisy:

Heidi Ganahl still won’t say whether she believes the 2020 election was decided fairly, despite claiming she trusts the elections in Colorado “or she would not be running.” [1]

Heidi Ganahl claims to support women and women’s rights, but she says she would “take a hard look” at signing legislation that would ban abortion in Colorado. [2]

Heidi Ganahl says she wants to keep Colorado kids safe, but she welcomed far-right columnist Dennis Prager to Colorado who called COVID-19 vaccines for kids “child abuse.” [3]

Heidi Ganahl claims she’s for openness and transparency in government, but she hid her campaign for governor for months behind a fake “podcast” to avoid accountability. [4]

Heidi Ganahl thinks she can “shake the Etch-a-Sketch” and reinvent her weak and failing campaign, but she’s wrong–and in 2022 it’s our job to hold her accountable. Take a moment right now to support ProgressNow Colorado as we prepare to launch our campaign to tell the truth about “Heidi the Hypocrite” Ganahl. There is no better investment you can make at this moment than supporting Colorado’s largest and most effective multi-issue progressive advocacy organization.

Thanks as always for your support. With your help, every voter in Colorado will get the facts about Heidi Ganahl before it’s too late. Here are a few more ways to make a difference for the week of January 24, 2022:
