Hefley Issues Statement Regarding Race to Succeed Him
U.S. Rep. Joel Hefley, R-Colo., today issued the following statement regarding the race to succeed him in Colorado:
Many people seem to be under the mistaken impression that I am endorsing the democrat in the race for Congress in the 5th District of Colorado. This is not the case.
I do not endorse Liberal Democrats and I regard Jay Fawcett as a Liberal Democrat. I also do not endorse people who I feel run sleazy, dishonest campaigns regardless of their political affiliation. Therefore, I am not endorsing anyone in the 5th Congressional race.
I am, however, endorsing Bob Beauprez for Governor, John Suthers for Attorney General, Ed Jones for State Senate, and many other Republicans who share the Republican principles I have worked so hard for over the years.
I encourage all Republicans to vote, and if there is a candidate you cannot support, leave it blank, but vote for the other Republicans in which you believe.
