Bill Bloom for Colorado | Press Conference

Bill Bloom

DENVER, COLORADO

 

My friend, Mr. Powell, spoke today about his accomplishments as Colorado Senator.

He bragged about the Bills he supported that were passed by the Republican Senate, but he failed to mention the important Bills he fought against: like those which would have lowered prescription drug prices and secured American citizenship.

He gloated about “honoring” Vietnam veterans who served to protect the world from the spread of Communism, but he failed to mention his defense of Socialism and his growing distrust of the free market.

He told us about his endorsement of a lobbying ban on Members of Congress, but failed to mention his sponsorship of a prayer ban in schools across Colorado and the United States.

I said it in Fort Collins and I’ll say it here: Senator Powell’s record isn’t just an embarrassment, it is dangerous. It contradicts the values of Colorado: the values of domestic safety, economic opportunity, and individual liberty.

After November, let’s be done talking about all the things Senator Powell has failed to do by electing someone who will never put partisanism above patriotism.

 

I now open the floor to a few questions.

"Lt. Col. Bill Bloom, we are only weeks away from the election. Senator Powell, has a tremendous lead build up to this point and has out fund raised you by an astronomical amount. You claim that Senator Powell is dangerous, however that does not appear to be the opinion of the people of Colorado. My question is do you feel that you might be out of touch with the voters given the deficits you are facing and the fact that your claims don't appear to match up with what the voters are telling us?

Thanks for being here, Robert.

For a long time, Senator Powell has been the default choice for Colorado. People who hold onto power for...what did he say it was, 15 years?...seldom like to give it up. They pull the strings of the Establishment because they don’t trust the people to rule. They raise tens of millions of dollars because they think they can buy their constituents vote to make up for their poor record.

I’m in this fight to give Coloradans another choice...a better choice. A choice that supports security, embraces opportunity, and secures liberty for every single American. I won’t let some rich guy who has been in office for far too long discourage me from making my appeal to the people of this beautiful state over the next few weeks, because Colorado deserves better.

Thank you for your question.

Mr. Bloom, what is your opinion on the Equality Act, which would force religious businesses to accommodate and serve gay customers? I know Colorado has had trouble in this area before, so I’d like to hear your answer.

Hi, Tom.

I firmly believe that members of the LGBTQIA+ community deserve the same respect and opportunity as everyone else; however, I also believe that religious organizations should not be forced by the Feds to act against their religious values.

As Senator, I will amend the proposed Equality Act to protect churches and other religious organizations from being targeted simply for exercising their Faith. I will also work across the aisle to ensure respect for both the LGBT Community and the Faith Community.

So you believe that there is a compromise there? Any other significant areas that you believe there is a good compromise in?

Democrats and Republicans need to get behind real, meaningful criminal justice reform; and we need to do it soon.

There’s something wrong with the fact that over the last 15 years, black Coloradans have continued to be disproportionately locked up. Blacks make up 18% of the state’s prison population but merely 4% of the state, itself. What does that say about our system of laws? What does that say about our representatives’ priorities?

Communities need support in reforming how we deter and rehabilitate criminals. It’s not just more equitable, but it is also more cost-efficient to divert a person from prison than to have the state pay $30,000+ a year to house and feed them. That’s why I’ll work with my colleagues in the Senate to fix this broken system.

Mr. Bloom, Ranch Wilder, United News. a fellow party member said this about the ENOUGH Act which you r opponent sponsored

"There are legal intricacies that need to be discussed and discerned regarding revenge porn: for example, whether the photographs are the property of the one who took them, or if ownership and rights were transferred to the recipient upon the gifting of the photo. Lots to discuss."

Do you agree with your fellow Republican and would you have voted for the bill?

I disagree with Senator Tillman’s position; however, had I been the Bill’s sponsor, I would have considered working with Mr. Tillman to clear up all the policy loopholes, all the legal questions, surrounding such property ownership.

Deliberation is not a dirty thing in the Senate, it’s a responsibility.

Do you support red flag bills, background checks, banning assault rifles or any form of gun control?

I support the Second Amendment, and understand that it is important to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people and in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

And how do you plan to do that?

Red Flag legislation is a good first step to preventing bad actors from doing harm.
