State GOP Changes Leadership

REPUBLICANColorado Republicans have ousted their state party chairman over concerns that the GOP should be in better shape. GOP chairman Ryan Call lost re-election Saturday at the annual GOP convention in Centennial. Call was seeking a third term, but lost to former gubernatorial candidate Steve House of Adams County. Even though the party is coming off its best election in years, some Republican activists say results could have been better with someone else in charge. Last November, Colorado saw 100,000 more Republican votes than Democratic votes. But Democrats hung on to the governor’s office and the state House. Call’s decision to seek Denver as the site of the 2016 Republican National Convention rubbed some the wrong way. Some said the effort took money and time away from GOP candidates.
