Ken Buck wins Colorado GOP chairman race and endorses recall elections for Democrats

ENGLEWOOD — The newly elected chairman of the Republican Party in Colorado endorsed recall efforts against Democrats in a strident speech in which he vowed to “let the world know this is not a blue state.”

U.S. Rep. Ken Buck won the four-way contest to lead the party after three dramatic deadlocked votes that mostly favored rival state Rep. Susan Beckman. 

But then a third candidate withdrew her candidacy ahead of the fourth ballot and endorsed Buck, giving him a narrow 51 percent victory.



In his address to party officials and activists, Buck said the 2020 campaign to reelect President Donald Trump is the contrast of  “freedom-loving Republicans versus socialist corrupt Democrats.”
