Two-thirds of Colorado House GOP members voted yesterday in favor of formally thanking state Representative Ron Hanks and those who joined him at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th.
A majority of House Republicans also voted to “call into question” whether Joe Biden was legitimately elected; to urge the decertification of the 2020 election results in an effort to reinstall former President Donald Trump.
These proposals came as amendments to a resolution brought by Colorado Democrats who want to urge Congress to adopt voting rights legislation. Democrats control the House and easily defeated each Republican amendment, ultimately passing the resolution on strict party lines. Hanks, a Fremont County Republican representing House District 60 and candidate to challenge Democratic U.S. Senator Michael Bennet in November, attended Trump’s rally on January 6th and then marched to the U.S. Capitol.
