Colorado Republicans Urged To Endorse Trump Now

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
GOP activist Darcy Schoening.

Early last month, Colorado Republican Party chairman Dave “Let’s Go Brandon” Williams was asked about the possibility that the state party might formally endorse ex-President Donald Trump ahead of the Super Tuesday primary in recognition of Trump’s commanding lead in every poll over his gaggle of opponents. Williams indicated strongly that he was personally supportive of the former President, but that he was “bound by rules” preventing the party from making a pre-primary endorsement. Williams teased the idea that in his estimation, there’s an “appetite” for changing those rules.

Yesterday the other shoe dropped, with former Moms for Liberty Colorado leader and hard-charging conservative agitatrix Darcy Shoening, who has of late been raising money for Republican legislative candidates, calling for a vote by the GOP central committee to endorse Trump:

Dear Colorado GOP Central Committee Member,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you for all you do for our great state and country. I’m reaching out to you today to garner support for an official Zoom call of the Colorado GOP Central Committee, to officially endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States…

Biden wants us to wait for the primary results, which are predictable; Joe Biden loves nothing more than the continued debates, media, and attention surrounding the trailing candidates. Any day spent humoring the rest of the field is another day wasted, not advancing President Trump past Biden and into the Oval Office.

The primary is fast approaching, and President Trump will be the nominee. I am calling on you to fully support him and call on the other candidates to resign now. No further time, resources, or energy shall be wasted on candidates trailing by double digits.

We haven’t seen an update from Schoening since yesterday on her progress, but this seems like exactly the kind of “push” Williams was looking for in order to ratify the state party’s support for Trump. Williams along with the party’s “election integrity expert” former Rep. Ron Hanks are both steadfast believers in the “Big Lie” that Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, so closing the loop and throwing the party’s support behind Trump for 2024 is not a big lift.

If the Colorado GOP does wade into the primary to endorse Trump, it will certainly make national headlines, and earn Williams lucrative loyalty points with Trump. If you’re a Colorado Republican who wants someone other than Trump to win the nomination in 2024…well, you probably should have done more to get Trump’s opponents within 20 points.

Love it or hate it, the Colorado GOP under Williams is Trump’s GOP. This pre-emptive endorsement would only be a formality.

  1. Makes you miss the old days when Both Ways Bob Beauprez chaired the Colorado GOP.

    What was the diferent between then and now?

    THEN:   one Republican governor, two Republican senators, four Republicans US Reps (versus two Dems), a healthy GOP majority in the state house but a paper-thin Dem majority in the state senate.

    NOW:  one Dem governor, two Dem US senators, five Dem US Reps (versus three Republicans), and healthy Dem majorities in both houses of the state legislature.

     

  2. Poor Darcy can't seem to win at anything. She was a failure in the resturant business, and failure at avoiding DUIs, a failure at getting away with theft charges, a failure at winning any election, a failure at destroying Monument, a failure at her candidate winning a school board election, a failure at Mom's for Liberty, and now she is a failure at raising funds for the Republican party, a party she seems intent on destroying. Darcy needs a hug.
