Colorado’s 3rd congressional district (CD3) has organized an Open Primary Lawsuit Zoom meeting at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 9, to review the recently filed lawsuit filed by the Colorado Republican Committee challenging open primaries in Colorado.
There will also be a short presentation about recruiting CU Regent candidates. But beyond that, the Zoom will be devoted to the lawsuit. GOP supporters statewide are invited.
The Zoom has been organized because a meeting of the Colorado Republican Central Committee last weekend concluded that it was “virtually impossible” that the party would be able to just opt out of an open primary.
“This lawsuit is THE BEST CHANCE OF ELIMINATING OPEN PRIMARIES,” reads the invite, and you are “encouraged to tune in and you are encouraged to donate. The lawsuit is being funded exclusively by individual contributions. No general funds of the state GOP are being used for this lawsuit. Success depends on every one of you who oppose open primaries.”
The invitation acknowledges that there are differing opinions and notes that the Zoom meeting is not a forum to debate the merits and demerits of open primaries. Its purpose is to educate people on the lawsuit and encourage financial support.
The agenda includes Senator Kevin Lundberg explaining the recently filed lawsuit in Colorado federal district court challenging the open primary law. Current CU Regent Glen Gallegos representing the 3rd Congressional District will discuss the recruitment of candidates to fill his seat when he terms out in 2024;
