Reports are coming from the Denver area that Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Golden), who had announced he was running for Governor and then changed his mind, may again be having conflicting thoughts about his political career. When holding an event to make public his withdrawal from the Governor’s race last month, Mr. Perlmutter also said he would not seek re-election in 2018. Now, he may again be reversing course. Apparently, the Congressman is testing the political waters about seeking re-election after all, and may well soon make a new announcement. Democrats would likely hold an open 7th District, but Perlmutter re-entering the race would undoubtedly remove all serious competition.
