EAGLE COUNTY, Colorado — Republican Stephen Bailey might be running for a seat that hasn’t been anything other than Democratic in more than 40 years, but that’s not slowing down his will to win.
While Bailey is running against U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, the sixth richest member of Congress who is willing to spend plenty of his own money on his campaign, there’s more to a campaign than just money, Bailey said.
Outside of just the 2nd Congressional District, Bailey feels corruption is a huge problem in Congress, and Republicans need to address it immediately or else they’ll risk earning back the trust of the American people.
Bailey said one way to start is by eliminating earmarks and massive legislative bills that include “everything but the kitchen sink,” he said.
