Reports of the death of the Republican Party in Colorado have been greatly exaggerated: that’s the word from State Representative and candidate for State Attorney General Mark Waller. Waller says that he is urging fellow GOP representatives in the Rocky Mountain State to return to their Ronald Reagen-roots and articulate a message of optimism and opportunity. Waller was in Montrose on Friday and says fellow Republicans would help the party more by working on the perception of some that they are the party of ‘angry white men.’
Waller is a self described ‘conservative’ who says he’s not afraid to reach across the aisle to benefit constituents. He served as Minority leader in the Statehouse until last week when he gave up the post to run for Attorney General. He headed to Denver and Larimer County after departing Montrose.
