Reaction in Colorado continues to boil over the alleged movement of funds from the Republican Governors Association (RGA) to groups with an agenda of keeping Republican candidate Tom Tancredo out of the governor’s mansion. From a prominent Denver radio show host denouncing his affiliation to the Republican Party to Pueblo County Republican volunteers and precinct leaders quitting, the RGA scandal continues to impact the Colorado State Republican party.

As news of the RGA election scandal spread across Colorado, KLZ radio host Randy Corporon decided to withdraw his Republican affiliation when the story broke. A poll then appeared on Facebook asking, “Did Randy B. Corporon Make the Right Choice by Quitting the GOP?”With over 100 votes, results showed 52% agreed with Corpoon’s decision.

When asked about the fallout on a local level, Pueblo Republican Party Chair shared on a radio show that “a lot of people”called to take their name off volunteer lists. She said, “We had about five withdraw from precinct chair.

At an Arapahoe County Republican Men’s Club Meeting, the Colorado Statesman reports State Party Chair Ryan Call gave responses to questions about the RGA scandal indicating his approval of RGA involvement. Call stated,

“If we express outrage about $75,000 worth of spending that might, might have been transferred that ultimately came from the Republican Governors Association, why don’t we express the same level of outrage when we see others expressing their First Amendment views on these issues? So I understand it’s frustrating, but you’re entitled, just like Chris Christie or the RGA, to spend $75,000 in support of your candidate if you want to.”

PolitiChicks.comCall did not respond to a request to clarify comments reported by the Colorado Statesman.

In contrast to Call, Colorado State Republican Vice-Chair Mark Baisley publicly denounced the RGA’s role in the state primaries and has called for an investigation.

The Republican gubernatorial nominee Bob Beauprez has yet to issue a statement on the RGA money funneling scheme.

Kathryn Porter is a political watchdog who has served as an elected member of the Colorado GOP State Central Committee and the El Paso County Republican Party Executive Committee. As an illuminator of truth, she was banned as a guest of the 2016 Republican National Convention by then Colorado State Chairman. Following her banishment, she contested the entire 2016 delegation to hold the state party accountable for balloting errors, the disregard of bylaws, and numerous irregularities at the state convention. The 2016 RNC Credentials Committee granted her a convention pass, overruling the former chair's pronouncement. In an RNC report responding to the case she brought before the Committee on Contests, the Colorado Republican Committee was chastized for its "embarassing incompetentence."
