We’ve received a reply from candidate Bob McConnell, running for Congress for Colorado’s 3rd congressional district. Bob has spoken with us at our events before, and it’s nice to have some straight replies to questions that matter to us.
In case you’re not familiar with what I’m talking about, the Southern Colorado Patriots Club has put together a candidate survey (download in PDF format or see our documents posted on our “Who Are We” page) in an effort to get answers to important questions from candidates. We’ve started a document called Candidate Survey Results (PDF) that records the answers we receive from candidates, so you can compare your answers with theirs. I encourage you to use these tools before selecting a candidate, either in the primary or general election.
Further, Bob also answered six specific questions we sent him. Both the questions and answers can be seen here, and I’ll provide an excerpt below:
• What is your vision for the country?
An America where every citizen is proud to be an American, proud of their elected
officials, works hard at a good job, is not dependent on handouts, can sleep at night
knowing that our borders are secure, knows that the best trained, best equipped, most
dedicated military force in the world is protecting our freedom.
• What is John Salazar’s biggest weakness?
He is an incumbent, beholden to a political machine that is inept and determined to
destroy the American way of life, and has already retired but continues to draw his
full pay and benefits.
As you may have guessed, we’re keenly interested in seeing Democrat John Salazar‘s defeat in November. But before then, we need to clear the hurdle of the primary election, where candidates Scott Tipton and Bob McConnell square off.
Though we’ve sent our candidate survey to Scott Tipton, we’ve had no reply from him, as is noted in the Candidate Survey Results document. We’ll update this document as often as we receive replies, so check back for more info.
