SILVERII: The Race To Lead Colorado’s Republican Party Is a Red Hot Mess. Just ask the Former CO GOP Chair
Silverii Dick Wadhams, chair of the Colorado Republican Party from 2007-2011 and I have never met. When I moved to Colorado, he was known as Colorado’s Karl Rove. That is to say, a cynical but effective operator, and he had the record to back it up. Wadhams also had a penchant for coining (or hijacking) insulting nicknames (i.e., “Boulder Liberal Mark Udall,” “Lawyer Lobbyist Tom Strickland” ) and working for racist candidates (i.e., former U.S. Sen. Conrad Burns (R-MT), who said a deplorable anti-Black racial slur to a newspaper editor, and former Gov. George Allen (R-VA) of “Macaca” infamy). Ironically, this makes old Dick quite a bit like the man he accuses of destroying nearly everything Wadhams built in Colorado over his career, one Donald J. Trump.

The Army of Gideon: Anti-Abortion Activism in Wichita
Wichita, Kansas, is no stranger to anti-abortion activism. In 2009, Dr. George Tiller, a physician who provided abortion services late in pregnancy, was assassinated by anti-abortion extremist Scott Roeder at the Reformation Lutheran Church in Wichita, where Tiller was serving as an usher. Dubbed “Tiller the baby killer” by U.S. Rep. Robert Dornan (R-CA) and demonized by Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, Tiller was targeted with violence throughout his career. In 1986 Tiller’s clinic was firebombed, and in 1993 he was shot five times by anti-abortion extremist Shelly Shannon.
The New Abolitionists: The Christian Anti-Abortion Movement Gaining Ground in State Legislatures
This year was the second year in a row that Colorado Republicans have attempted to pass legislation criminalizing abortion in Colorado. Rep. Scott Bottoms’ (R-CO Springs) bill, “Abolishing Abortion in Colorado,” was a repeat of former Rep. Dave Williams’ (R-CO Springs) bill in 2022. Both bills featured testimony from Jeff Durbin of End Abortion Now and members of Colorado Right to Life, and both bills died in Democrat-controlled committees.
