DescriptionIt’s official. Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Tina Peters, who is under criminal investigation for alleged breaches of election security protocols, is running for reelection — although she’ll first have to beat Republican challenger Bobbie Gross in the June primary election.

Peters formally made the announcement Thursday in Grand Junction on the steps of the Mesa County Justice Center, where she also told supporters that she is declining Colorado Secretary of State Jenna Griswold’s offer to allow the clerk to resume her election duties. Peters would have been required to sign a document saying she would comply with election security protocols that would also place limits on the clerk.

“Have you seen the latest?” Peters asked the approximately 20 people gathered outside the justice center. “Jenna Griswold, who was elected with George Soros’ money, has offered to let me return to my job if I apologize, make a public statement that we don’t need transparency, and that there was no voter fraud – then I can have my office back.”
