Yesterday, former five-term Colorado Congressman, 2008 presidential candidate, and twice failed gubernatorial contender, once as the nominee of the Constitution Party, announced that he will return to the Republican Party and again run for Governor. He joins a large GOP primary field that features state Treasurer Walker Stapleton and Arapahoe area District Attorney George Brauchler. Democrats are favored to hold the seat being vacated by term-limited Gov. John Hickenlooper (D). The party’s early leaders are US Rep. Jared Polis (D-Boulder) and Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne.
