Monthly Archives: December 2018

Get ready to be engaged and informed with The Reagan Club of Colorado’s 2019 speakers at our monthly meetings.  We meet on the second Thursday of month from 6:00pm-8:30pm at CB & Potts, 1257 W. 120th Avenue, Westminster, CO, 80234.  Admission is $5 for Reagan Club members and $10 for non-members.

Our January 10th speaker will be George Brauchler, the 18th Judicial District Attorney in Arapahoe County.

His highest profile case was prosecuting James Holmes, the 2012 Aurora theatre shooter who killed 12 people during the midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises.”  A Colorado judge formally sentences Holmes to 12 life sentences, one life term for each person he killed, plus 3,318 years in prison for the attempted murders of those he wounded and for rigging his apartment with explosives. He is not eligible for parole.

George Brauchler ran for Colorado Attorney General but lost to Phil Weiser in November, 2018.  He will be discussing what happened during the election and where do we go from there.  You don’t want to miss our 2019 kick-off meeting and there will be time for Q&A.

It’s time for the Colorado GOP to regroup and move forward; here’s a four-point plan

  • Sherrie Gibson

As the dust settles and hordes of strategists offer their opinions about where the Republican Party needs to go from election night forward, here is a decidedly different viewpoint.

Many proposed solutions have been bandied about, from dumping Trump to trying to connect to the broader electorate through more compassionate messaging.

Welcome to 2018.

The need for the GOP to look at their messaging has been a recommendation for years, so it is more than amusing to see some folks trip over their own insouciant behavior to breathlessly espouse the benefits of connecting with the heart of the electorate. What has been lacking is the will to believe that messaging is an area in which anyone other than the candidates should be participating.

Then there’s the president; to dump President Trump would be an error. Turning our back on the nomination of two conservative Supreme Court Justices and the reams of regulation already repealed would be a critical mistake, one the base would surely make any Republican candidate pay dearly for. There is an appropriate way to be supportive of the president, and that is to stand on the policies that are positively impacting the lives of every Coloradan.
