Any of the four capable candidates in the Republican primary for governor will offer a stark contrast to whomever emerges from the Democratic primary.
Right now, if you believe the pollsters (and who does after the 2016 presidential race?) it’s Walker Stapleton’s race to lose. But our endorsement isn’t based on electability or polling data. It’s based on a vision that resonates with Western Slope values.
All of the candidates are supporters of the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights and oppose any tinkering with its formula or revenue caps. That certainly lines up with the majority view in Mesa County, so the candidates have to distinguish themselves in some other way.
