The Committee stated 4 days earlier than the 2022 Basic Election, the Colorado Republican chairwoman, Vickie Tonkins, censured seven republican candidates who had been on the poll with none constructive or legitimate motive. They are saying Tonkins rejected repeated requests to carry her particular assembly after the election.
