Candidate Interview: Gino Campana on Why He is Running for the U.S. Senate

Gino Campana could be described as the embodiment of the American dream. Campana is a first-generation American. His father came to America in 1950 at the age of 14. He came with empty pockets and the ambition to succeed. As a young man, Campana worked alongside his father, a stonemason. He graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in civil engineering. He started his business rehabbing homes and selling them for a small profit. Now he oversees a large housing development company as well as Jessup Farm Artisan Village (along with a restaurant and brewery, located in the Village).

Campana started out in public service by serving on local boards. In 2013 Campana ran for City Council in Fort Collins. He won and used his business experience to reduce the city’s debt by almost 40%. He has served as chairman of the Larimer County Republican Party. He was also appointed by former President Donald Trump to serve in his administration.

Campana is running a conservative platform: limited government, the sanctity of the Constitution, protection of the Second Amendment, and fiscally responsible policies.

The bill provides a list of presumptively invalid reasons for peremptory challenges. Presumptively invalid reasons include:

  • Expressing distrust of law enforcement officers or a belief that law enforcement officers engage in racial profiling;

  • Residing in certain neighborhoods;

  • Receiving state benefits; or
