I listened to the Dick Wadhams interview with Dan Caplis.🔗
He is the mouthpiece for the profiteering, equivocating faction of the GOP. They want us to believe that open primaries and pandering to the unaffiliated is how things have been all along and we’re attempting some sort of radical never-been-done-before coup by only allowing Republicans to vote for our candidates. It’s a gaslighting technique that has, regrettably, worked on a fair number of Republicans.
The exact opposite is true: Colorado primaries were closed until a mere seven years ago. The radical change was opening them and all the woes this party has borne in election cycles since are directly correlated to open primaries.
So why does Dick Wadhams and the consultant class of the GOP fight so ferociously to protect open primaries? Could it be that they’re making money on these campaigns? We already know that petition candidates are good sources of revenue and many, if not most, of the GOP candidates on the general ballots since open primaries have been petition candidates.
It is also noteworthy that crises make for great fundraising opportunities. Fear-mongering to the GOP faithful has undoubtedly been successful for groups like Advance Colorado, Peak Republicans, et al. If the GOP were successful and there was no imminent threat from tyrannical Dems, their crisis funding would dry up.
The 2023 Vacancy Committee meeting to elect a new Vice Chairman for the Colorado Republican Committee served as a testimony to the importance of a well-run, transparent, paper ballot elections. The first round of voting for the Vice Chairman did not produce a majority winner, but it did prove that the electronic credentialing process had failed to count as present at least a dozen members.
Improvements will be made to the credentialing process for the September 30th Opt-Out meeting, and all processes will be tightened up. The August 5th meeting was a good chance for the new Chairman, Dave Williams, to get his teams ready for the Opt-Out meeting.
Below are the forms used for the Teller Committee, and some that were not used but were on hand if needed.
