Elected to the Colorado House of Representatives in 2010, Chris Holbert quickly gained recognition as a credible constitutional conservative. In 2011, Representative Holbert was rated the #1 "Guardian of Liberty" by Liberty Watch Colorado. He also became the highest rated member of the Douglas County state legislative delegation with the Colorado Union of Taxpayers (2011, 2012, 2013, & 2014) and with Principles of Liberty (2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014). During the 2014 Colorado General Session, Chris was one of seven state legislators to have earned a 100% rating with the Colorado Union of Taxpayers and the prestigious "Taxpayer Champion" designation.
During the 2013 Colorado General Session when the Democrats forced through their infamous "gun control" agenda, supporters of the Second Amendment came to appreciate Chris' uncompromising stance on the Right to keep and bear arms. Chris has pledged to not negotiate with the Rights of law-abiding citizens and to never compromise on the Second Amendment.
