Erik Aadland is the Republican candidate for Colorado's 7th Congressional District. Erik has been on the show with me several times. I want to make sure listeners know that his Democrat opponent has not responded in any way to multiple invitations to be on the show. (By email, by text, and by text to her husband.) Erik is a West Point grad and Army veteran. He's also spent time doing oil and gas development, including in Israel. Erik lives in the beautiful Jefferson County foothills.
This is not going to be an easy race; Cook Political has it as "likely Democrat". But the district is only something like D+4 and State Senator Brittany Pettersen, the Democratic Candidate, is, in my opinion, not a particularly strong candidate because of how far to the left she is. Erik is an underdog but I do believe he can win and I strongly support him. (Unfortunately I don't live in CD-7.)
