Monument, CO – U.S. Senate candidate Amy Stephens announced today that Colorado leaders, including newly-elected state Senator George Rivera (R-Pueblo), have endorsed her campaign and will help spread her conservative message across the Centennial State.
“The recall election proved that the right Republican candidate, when coupled with Colorado’s outstanding conservative grassroots activists, can win any race,” said Senator Rivera. “Amy is a fighter who worked tirelessly for me in the trenches during the election. I know that she has the determination and commitment to conservative principles needed to defeat Senator Mark Udall in 2014. I am proud to support her candidacy and look forward to helping elect her as our next United States Senator.”
Last month, 99.7% of the voters that chose to recall Democrat Senator Angela Giron voted for Senator Rivera to replace her. He became the first Republican to represent Pueblo in the Colorado Senate since 1938.
“George Rivera is a leader who stood up for our Second Amendment rights and helped defeat the Democrats’ formidable political machine. George campaigned on common sense values and held an out-of-touch liberal accountable for her assault on our personal liberties,” said Amy Stephens. “I am honored to have his endorsement and the support of this distinguished group of conservative leaders for my campaign to bring middle class values back to Washington.”
In the coming days, the Stephens campaign will announce additional support from leaders and grassroots activists from across Colorado.
