Underdog Dean Boehler Stuns The Establishment
Conservative Republican Dean Boehler emerged with 2/3 of the delegate vote at Colorado’s 6th State Senatorial District Assembly on Saturday. Boehler, from San Miguel County, filed papers to enter the race just two weeks ago.
Colorado’s 6th State Senatorial District, considered a hotly contested race for Republicans, consists of 8 counties in the Southwest corner of the state. The district includes Archuletta, Dolores, LaPlata, Montezuma, Montrose, Ouray, San Juan and San Miguel counties.
Boehler faces a primary race against State Representative Ellen Roberts for the State Senate seat currently held by Democrat Bruce Whitehead.
Boehler attributes his large margin of victory to a grassroots effort of conservative Republicans, including members of the Tea Party and 9-12 Project.
