COLORADO SPRINGS–Jeff Hays, Chairman of the Colorado Republican Party says he will not run for reappointment when the GOP state committee chooses a new chairman in March. Hays, who led the state party for two years and the El Paso County party for four, said in an email Friday, “After six years of party leadership at county and state party levels, I’m eager to make a positive difference in other areas and also believe the party is primed for new leadership.”
Sources close to the state GOP say that among those interested in running for the position include Don Ytterberg, CEO of Advanced Surface Technologies and former Republican candidate for the 7th Congressional District; former State Representative and Senator Tom Weins; Sherrie Gibson, current Colorado GOP vice-chairman; and Joshua Hosler, current El Paso County GOP chairman. Hosler confirmed his interest with Complete Colorado by text message.
