Former University of Colorado Regent Joe Neguse (D) took a step closer to becoming the consensus Democrat to succeed Rep. Jared Polis (D-Boulder). Mr. Polis is leaving the House to run for Governor, leaving a safely Democratic seat open in his wake. Yesterday, Nederland Mayor Kristopher Larsen announced that he is ending his congressional quest. This leaves Mr. Neguse with only former Boulder County Democratic Party chairman Mark Williams standing between he and the Democratic nomination. Winning the June party primary is tantamount to capturing the seat in November.
