Yesterday, we covered reports that Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Golden), who had previously announced his retirement, may reverse course. Now it appears that all or most of the Democrats running for what they thought was an open seat would likely step aside if the incumbent decides to re-enter the race. All are continuing to campaign, but most were sending clear signals that they would stand down should Rep. Perlmutter ultimately decide to seek re-election. The most prominent announced Democratic candidates are former US Ambassador Dan Baer, state Sens. Andy Kerr and Dominick Moreno, and state Rep. Brittany Pettersen.
