Former Secretary of State Bernie Buescher talked with voters in Grand Junction Wednesday.
"The citizens of Mesa County deserve to have their voice heard and they deserve a quality secretary of state," Buescher said.
He said the secretary of state position requires the ability to oversee voting practices and also head up a busy business registration department with integrity and efficiency.
Democratic candidate Joe Neguse joined Buescher to discuss why he wants to create policies that cater to all of Colorado.
