Donna Lynne (D), who was appointed in March of last year to replace resigned Lt. Governor Joe Garcia, yesterday declared that she will enter the crowded Democratic primary for Governor. Ms. Lynne came to the state office from her position as executive Vice President of Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc., but has spent half of her professional career in the public sector. She joins US Rep. Jared Polis (D-Boulder), former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy, ex-state Sen. Mike Johnston, and businessmen Adam Garrity, Noel Ginsburg, and Erik Underwood as major Democratic primary candidates. Aurora regional District Attorney George Brauchler is the leading Republican candidate. Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is ineligible to seek a third term.
