County assembly to vote on candidates, resolutions

Brian Smith

Moffat County will have a clearer picture of how its election ballot will look after Saturday's Republican county assembly.

The assembly — the second step in Colorado's caucus process — will see the 86 delegates from Moffat County vote on which candidates' names will appear before voters for the primary election in August.

Candidates must receive 30 percent of the delegate vote to be placed on the ballot. If they receive less than 30, but more than 10 percent of the vote, they can petition their way onto the ballot.

All candidates, save for Robert Razzano, who is petitioning his way onto the ballot, are expected to attend and make candidate speeches, said John Ponikvar, Moffat County Republican Central Committee chairman.

State Sen. Al White, R-Hayden, and State Rep. Randy Baumgardner, R-Hot Sulphur Springs, will make speeches as well.

Representatives for Bob McConnell and Scott Tipton, both candidates for the Third Congressional District, and J.J. Ament, candidate for state treasurer, will also speak on their behalf.
