Republican businesswoman Deborah Flora has announced a run for Senate challenging incumbent Democratic Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO).
Flora, president and founder of Parents United America, said she was running to combat increasing crime, high inflation, the border crisis, the national debt, and the “political indoctrination pervading our schools.”
“I’m entering this race to stand up for the common ground of common sense that unites us,” Flora said, “With out-of-control inflation, skyrocketing crime, a humanitarian disaster at the border, political indoctrination pervading our schools, and the devastating Biden/Bennett agenda that will burden future generations with trillions of dollars in new debt—we are indeed a nation in crisis.”
In her Senate announcement and on her website, Flora emphasized her record as a businesswoman and her role as a wife and mother.
“In Washington, career politicians like Bennet and Biden put special interests over the hard-working individuals in Colorado. I am a small business owner, a wife and a mom. I have a proven record of standing strong for our shared values from the School Board to the State House, and now I am ready to stand for all of us in the U.S. Senate.”
