Williams has drawn steady criticism from fellow Republicans for using his position heading the state party to support his campaign.

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. — Colorado Republican Chairman Dave Williams faced mounting calls to step down Saturday amid a push by the GOP chair of one of the state’s largest counties to oust him from the top party position.

“It is an aggressive move, but what Dave has been doing for the past few months is just unacceptable anymore,” Jefferson County GOP Chairwoman Nancy Pallozzi told Colorado Politics after launching a petition on Friday to force a vote to fire Williams.

“He is not speaking on behalf of the Republican Party. He is speaking for himself,” Pallozzi said.

Williams told Colorado Politics he isn’t going anywhere.

Pallozzi said she believes Williams crossed a line last week with a mass email from the state party attacking Pride Month, sent days after the LGBTQ community kicked off the annual observance.
