Support Chase Kohne in the Colorado Democratic Primary
My name is Chase Kohne and I’m running for Congress because we need caring and courageous leadership in Washington now more than ever. For the past ten months, I’ve traveled throughout eastern Colorado to meet as many of you as possible and share my vision for affordable healthcare for all, renewable energy, strong schools, growing opportunities, and leading with integrity.
Now, I’m asking for your support in the Colorado Democratic primary. As special election victories across the nation have shown us, Democrats win in tough districts by choosing a candidate with the right background and the right message. As a proud U.S. Army veteran, a large animal veterinarian, and a small business owner, my military service, my agricultural profession, and my small town roots give me the experience and the background I need to reach out in our rural district.
I joined the Army to defend freedom, equality, and justice for all. I was awarded the Bronze Star for my Civil Affairs service in Afghanistan, where I helped rural Afghans resist the Taliban and worked with local leaders to identify and provide the things their communities needed most. I continue to serve as a Major in the Army Reserve. My wife Amberlie is a registered nurse who also serves as a Captain in the Army Reserve, and she is currently deployed overseas in support of our national security. We’re proud to be a military family, and our two daughters inspire me every day to make Colorado a better place to live, learn, work, and visit.
I grew up in a farm family in a small town of 600 people. My rural roots inspired me to become a large animal veterinarian to help animals and the people who depend on them thrive. I built my own veterinary practice in Castle Rock and I care for horses, cows, sheep, and goats on farms and ranches throughout our district.
My vision for a better Colorado and a stronger nation includes affordable universal healthcare for all; a renewable energy revolution to bring good jobs to our district and clean, sustainable power to protect our Colorado way of life; securing a great education and lifelong opportunities for every American; immigration reform that protects our Dreamers; revitalizing rural America and saving our small towns, and leading—always—with honesty and courage.
The opportunity to serve in Congress is both an honor and a tremendous responsibility, not a retirement plan for out-of-touch elites. I believe women’s rights are universal human rights, and I will fight for the rights of all Americans no matter where we come from, how we worship, or who we love. In Congress, I will consistently stand up against dark money and special interests, and my decisions will always put people first.
Thousands of Coloradans have already joined our true grassroots movement: Over 99 percent of our contributions come from Colorado, with 90 percent coming from everyday Coloradans right here in our district. Our message resonates with Coloradans from all walks of life, and we’re proud to have strong bipartisan support.
Our nation is at a dangerous crossroads and we need leaders with courageous values now more than ever. My name is Chase Kohne and I’m asking for your support in the Democratic primary because our future is worth fighting for and Colorado needs a warrior in Washington.
With sincere thanks for your support,
Dr. Chase Kohne
