Nationally connected executive, Barry Farah, jumps into the Colorado Governor’s Race, asserting his path to victory and stunning competitors

(COLORADO SPRINGS)–With two conservative Republican primary candidates recently dropping out, business and nonprofit executive, Barry Farah entered the Colorado race for Governor on March 24 with a flurry of grassroots appeal through conservative talk radio interviews, TV, online and print media.

Barry Farah explains why he jumped in stating, “I am the only genuine conservative Republican in the race, and I believe I have the most credible chance of winning in the general election.”

Farah continues, “I am the only candidate capable of winning the three groups of voters required to win in November. I can win the pragmatic businessperson, the political middle, as well as ignite the base that is motivated by faith and principle. I am already vigorously supported by those fed up with establishment Republicans.”

“But that’s not all,” asserts Farah. “As an executive in the business and non-profit worlds for over 30 years, I believe I’ve demonstrated my capability to get things done in a fair, honest and collaborative way, which is appealing to independent voters.  My regular speeches around the state on how the founding principles of freedom are to everyone’s benefit have won both the hearts and minds of members of Rotary clubs and Republican clubs alike.”

Farah’s local and national connections also set him apart. Farah’s universe of friendships includes the Republican Governors Association and its Governors, senior White House staff, as well as key leaders within the Freedom Partners Seminar Network and Americans for Prosperity, where his wife serves as deputy state director in Colorado.  (She recently took a leave of absence to join the campaign).

Farah’s campaign team consists of a former head of the RGA and Red Mavericks Media – the team that is responsible for the Republican Governor of Maryland’s victory – and the strongest local campaign team of any among the candidates in the race, including former Colorado Political Director for the Trump campaign, Jefferson Thomas.

To access the ballot, Farah needs to come out of the Republican State Assembly on April 14 with at least 30% of the delegate vote.
