was chosen Nov. 6 by his colleagues to be the assistant minority
leader in the Senate.
The assistant minority leader slot is the No. 2 leadership
position for the Republicans in the state Senate behind the
minority leader position, which was filled by Josh Penry,
“I was really honored to be elected to the position by the other
Republican senators,” Brophy said. “I serve with great people and
earning their trust as assistant leader means the world to me.”
During the caucus meeting, the Republicans nominated four people
for the four leadership positions and cast unanimous ballots for
“We didn’t win as many races as I hoped we would win,” Brophy
said during his acceptance, “but the people in Colorado and around
the nation proved that they share our values when they voted on
ballot initiatives. This is a center-right state and the U.S. is a
center-right country; the citizens proved that by voting for
freedom, traditional family values and against tax increases. We
will enjoy electoral success again for our candidates soon.”
The legislative session will begin in January. Brophy is
expected to play the role of guardian of Republican values during
the next two legislative sessions.
“I expect to spend a lot of time helping my colleagues
communicate our conservative message to their constituents through
traditional and new media efforts,” Brophy said.
