Former US Interior Secretary and Colorado Senator Ken Salazar (D) confirmed two weeks ago that he was considering entering the Governor’s race. Yesterday, he announced that he will not enter the open race contest. This likely leaves the door open for US Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Golden), who has been openly considering the Governor’s contest. Little action so far has occurred on the Republican side with former state Rep. Victor Mitchell being the most prominent individual to announce his candidacy. Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is ineligible to seek a third term.
