I spent Saturday in the company of Tom Lucero, a candidate for Colorado’s 4th Congressional District. Four different events brought together some of Tom’s early supporters to raise money and get the effort underway. Lucero has spent a decade on the University of Colorado’s Board of Regents supporting reform of higher ed, ran a successful anti-pay-to-play intitative campaign in the face of huge opposition of the Rocky Mountain State’s public employee unions, and is a successful businessman. Tom’s also one of those too-rare Republicans of Hispanic descent, and has personal story that is quite amazing. He had not yet been born when his father was killed, leaving his then 21-year old mother on her own to raise Tom, which she did with great success.
If the GOP is going to get the majority in Congress back, it will need the 4rth. Tom Lucero deserves your early support, which you can give via his campaign website.
