UPDATE: Gordon Klingenschmitt, aka "Dr. Chaps" just received 71% of the delegate votes at the El Paso County Republican Assembly. Dave Williams announced his intent to petition onto the primary ballot, to be held in June. Great opportunity for the Democrat in the race, Lois Fornander, to pick up some moderate ,Independent, and disenchanted Republican votes, whichever one of these two charmers ends up on the November general election ballot.
Voters in El Paso County's HD15 will almost certainly elect a Republican. The district was and is 63-30% Republican vs. Democrat , so Democratic representation is not on the menu for HD15.
But which Republican will get the assembly's nomination on March 29?
Will it be bachelor #1, David Williams, known for extreme homophobia, , while simultaneously giving child sex offenders the benefit of the doubt? Back in 2013, PCG exposed this bully in a series of investigative diaries. Best quote (after being requested to apologize to gay Republicans): "You know what I'm sorry about? Not buying an AR-15 sooner." Photo and quote from Williams' Facebook page, researched and diaried by PCG
Williams is strongly supported by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, as evidenced by his campaign financial disclosure of January, 2014: $100 from Tim Neville, $2,000 from Rocky Mtn Gun Owners PAC. Most of the remainder of his $37K finances consist of a loan from himself. The other two candidates are also self-financing.
Will it be bachelor #2, Gordon "Chaps" Klingenschmitt, last known for bullying a 7 year old kid, shutting down Right Wing Watch, kicked out of the Navy for cause , financial prestidigitaton,( mixing monies from his "Pray in Jesus' Name", "Persuade the World Ministries", Youtube accounts, and campaign finances)? Latest quotes: "Gay people see child molestation as “a favorite ‘recruiting’ tool of adult homosexuals." And, the ever-popular: "I'm running to oppose a theocracy."

Or will it be bachelor #3, Michael Kuhn, * young El Paso attorney, and a newcomer to romancing Republican voters,but marching along to that Tea Party Drum, as evidenced by these issue positions from Kuhn's website:
Mike is strongly in favor of maintaining TABOR.
Liberal Democrats in the Colorado legislature have continued to violate our Second Amendment rights by enacting unreasonable restrictions on gun ownership.
Mike knows that life begins at conception and mourns the loss of over a million babies each year who are aborted in the United States.
Mike believes that marriage is between a man and a woman and will fight against redefining marriage.
HD15 Republican Voter, how will you decide? The clock is ticking.
* I can't find an image of Mike Kuhn which does not include his wife and baby, so will not include an image.
