On the Stump: Mike Kopp, GOP candidate for governor

As Democrats and Republicans hold county assemblies this month, statewide candidates are making the rounds in an effort to garner votes at state assemblies on April 12 to make the primary ballot. Colorado Independent recorded several recent speeches and will feature them in coming days.

Speaker: Former state Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp, Republican candidate for governor

Locale: Jefferson County Republican Assembly, March 24, 2014.

Issues: Leadership, cutting taxes, reforming regulation, Second Amendment rights, anti-Obamacare

Quote: “I believe we need a governor right now for the first time in a long time that will stand up and say to Washington, ‘I’m in office to defend my state against you. If you’re stepping into my state to take the freedoms from from my citizens, we’re going to fight you.'”

Jokes: None.
