Yesterday, Colorado Senate Democrats voted to sign Colorado up for the “National Popular Vote Interstate Compact,” which would end the Electoral College as we know it and give all of Colorado’s electoral votes to whoever wins the national popular vote.
All 16 Republican State Senators took a stand and said NO to this bill.
Click here to watch the video that’s getting a lot of attention on social media of Senator Paul Lundeen making the case for Colorado voters.
Republicans in the House are paying attention as this bill makes its way to their chamber next. “This bill destroys Coloradans’ voice in future presidential elections. It amplifies the voice of voters in a few large cities while muting the equally important voices of voters in states like Colorado, New Mexico and Wisconsin. Republicans will fight this bill every step of the way because Colorado deserves to be counted, and heard,” said House Republican leader Patrick Neville.

The radical Democrats are at it again, this time with an attempt to trample parental rights, subvert local control of public-school curriculum, and force their agenda on our children.
This is an urgent call to action on a serious issue coming before the Colorado House of Representatives this Wednesday, January 30th, at 1:30 pm.
HB19-1032 will require sex-ed curriculum in Colorado public schools to conform to radical notions of sexuality and gender, while allowing classes to cover these topics without parents being notified.
Your Republican representatives are fighting for local control of education and your rights as parents. If these things are important to you as well, consider going to the Capitol to testify against this bill and emailing or calling your representative and asking him or her to vote “no” on HB 19-1032. Click here to contact your representative today.
The hearing on this terrible bill will take place in the Health and Insurance Committee, which meets at 1:30 pm on Wednesday, January 30th in the Colorado State Capitol, Room HCR0107. This room is in the basement of the Capitol Building, 200 East Colfax Avenue, Denver.
On a different note, Senate Bill 25, Senator Jim Smallwood’s bill to help save newborns by teaching Colorado’s Safe Haven law in school, is being debated on the floor of the State Senate tomorrow. Sign the petition if you haven’t already and let your senators know you support this bill.
