COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – 11 News spoke with people on both sides of the aisle, and while some are not happy about the potential of a rematch of the 2020 election, others have their minds made up about where their vote is going.
“I voted for Trump twice, so I’ll probably have to say I would do it again,” Brad Buzzo said.
“I just feel like there’s better candidates. I really hope it doesn’t come down to a rematch between the two,” Colorado Springs resident Kris Clinkscales said.
Just days before the New Hampshire primary election, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has dropped out of the race for the Republican nominee for the presidential election. Voters in the area are split on the news.
“I thought he was gonna be a good contender for primaries for the election,” Colorado Springs resident Paul Powell said.
“I’m kind of happy about it just in the sense of Ron tends to lean towards a lot of divisive rhetoric,” Clinkscales said.
Nikki Haley and former President Donald Trump are the two leading candidates for the seat. Meanwhile, The United States Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on Feb. 8 over whether or not Trump can be on the Colorado ballot.
“I don’t really care for all the bickering back and forth,” Buzzo said. “You know I just care about America and what’s right.”
“If you’re an American citizen, do what you need to do: go vote. It’s better to exercise your constitutional right to go vote,” Clinkscales said.
As of now, Secretary of State Jena Griswold has certified the ballot with Trump’s name on it. The Colorado primary elections are on March 8.
