Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Arvada), who entered the 2018 Governor’s race only to withdraw after two months and return to his safe House seat, said yesterday that he is not thinking about entering the 2020 Senate campaign and that, “he likes the House.”
Democrats are in search of a stronger potential opponent to Sen. Cory Gardner (R) than the ones who have already announced: former state Senator and defeated gubernatorial candidate Mike Johnston, and ex-state House Speaker and twice defeated federal candidate Andrew Romanoff. The seat looks to be highly competitive since Colorado is moving distinctively toward the political left. But, it will likely take a stronger candidate than Messrs. Johnston or Romanoff to unseat Sen. Gardner, one of the GOP’s most talented candidates.
