Ken Buck: Our Campaign Is #64Strong

When I began my run for the U.S. Senate, I pledged to be a Senator for all Coloradans. Recently my campaign completed a tour of all 64 counties in Colorado. As I spent the past few months visiting with and listening to the issues and concerns of Coloradans in every part of the state, one thing became clear.

From the Western Slope to the Eastern Plains, the Front Range to the San Luis Valley, the people of Colorado want real leadership and a return to common sense Colorado values. They want a senator who will continue listening to their concerns beyond election day.

Most of all, Coloradans continue to suffer from the fallout of Obamacare.

While website glitches, low enrollment numbers, delays, and promises of fixes have filled the headlines, skyrocketing premiums in Colorado’s mountain resort communities have largely gone undiscussed. According to the reports that do exist, health care insurance can cost 30% more in Colorado’s many ski towns.
