Holtzman delivers petitions to get on the primary ballot

DENVER – Shunned by his party, GOP gubernatorial hopeful Marc Holtzman delivered petitions with more than 21,000 signatures Thursday to get on the primary ballot, rejecting pleas from party leaders to drop his challenge to rival Bob Beauprez.Holtzman arrived at the secretary of state’s office in a large bus and supporters carried boxes of petitions to hand over to secretary of state Gigi Dennis. Holtzman was forced to petition onto the ballot after he failed to get enough votes at the state Republican Party assembly on Saturday, where delegates picked Beauprez.”The Republican Party has always stood for ballot access. Today is proof that Republican voters of Colorado want a choice in determining who best represents their values,” Holtzman said.
