BRIGHTON, Colo. — It’s Round Two for Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman, who, unlike many congressional Republicans, has decided to engage one again with anxious voters in his suburban Denver district.
Coffman, who hosted a contentious town hall in April, holds another late Tuesday at a high school in the northern suburb of Brighton.
The event comes after the Republican-controlled Congress failed to act on President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
And it comes as Coffman’s Colorado GOP colleague, Rep. Ken Buck, declared the Republican Party “dead” in a Denver Post commentary. Buck says the party has accomplished little in Congress and “no longer has a vision for a better America.”
