The Legacy of Liberty Republicans and the Liberty Scorecard

Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado is chartered. Earl Bandy is elected State Chairman.
2011 - 2018
Principles of Liberty, founded by political activists Rich and Laurie Bratten, runs a legislative scorecard based on the principles of individual rights, free markets and limited government.
After several years of dormancy, the Colorado Charter of the Republican Liberty Caucus is reorganized and rechartered. Sue Moore is elected State Chairman.
The Bratten family moves to Wyoming. The Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado replicates the methodology used in the Principles of Liberty scorecard and creates the Liberty Scorecard.
RLCCO subscribes to Bill Track 50, a legislative search engine that allows the Liberty Scorecard team to automate bill tracking and vastly expand the number of bills rated each year.
Republican Liberty Caucus of Colorado is renamed Colorado Liberty Republicans and registers as a 501c4. The Liberty Scorecard is renamed the Colorado Liberty Scorecard. It is the most comprehensive legislative scorecard in the state of Colorado, rating upwards of 400 bills per year.
Colorado Liberty Republicans is a political action organization dedicated to promoting the ideals of individual rights, limited government and free markets by:
- Speaking to conservative organizations throughout Colorado to make them aware of the Liberty Scorecard and how to use it as a resource to encourage their elected officials to operate within their proper role.
- Working with other conservative organizations to identify, recruit and support candidates for state and local government who hold to our principles.
- Monitoring legislative activity to hold elected Republicans accountable to the principles on which they campaigned.
