Abortion Debate Polarizes Jeffco Republicans

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Great rundown from Lynn Bartels at the Denver Post on how the abortion debate is polarizing Republicans in Jefferson County:

The division in the Colorado Republican Party over abortion was apparent during the Jeffco GOP assembly when a low-key nomination for a state House seat turned into a passionate debate on abortion.

Nate Marshall, a construction manager, was the lone GOP candidate for the seat now held by Rep. Max Tyler, D-Lakewood. At the House District 23 assembly Saturday, delegate John Darrow asked Marshall where he stood on abortion.

“100 percent opposed,” Marshall said, drawing gasps and comments from from the audience.

Bartels goes on to explain how several Republicans spoke up immediately, questioning Marshall's "100% opposed" position on abortion — with one woman even claiming it would force her to vote for the Democrat in the race (Rep. Max Tyler).

The Personhood issue has been a hot topic in Colorado and nationally lately, thanks to Congressman Cory Gardner and his dubious announcement that he was changing his position on Personhood after years of support. Republican candidates still need to be firmly anti-abortion in order to make it through a Primary, but it sounds like more and more GOP voters are getting fed up with the Republican Party's refusal to bend on the issue.

  1. OMG.  How far the "Republican" Party has fallen in the last 20 years.  At the time I left the chairmanship of the Republican Party in Jeffco, we controlled every legislative seat and lost only one race at the county level (that to my good friend Joan FitzGerald who was more surprised than anyone on election night).  Now they have a white supremicist candidate for the state legislature.  I'm just LMAO and hope all those who didn't heed my warnings are as ashamed as they should be, which is pretty ashamed.
