US Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Golden) has scheduled a news conference for Sunday, and it is expected that he will announce his campaign for Governor. The move has been expected since former US Interior Secretary and Colorado Senator Ken Salazar (D) said he would not enter the open 2018 Governor’s race. Earlier in the week, Republican District Attorney George Brauchler announced his gubernatorial candidacy. So far, Democratic businessmen Adam Garrity and Noel Ginsburg are announced candidates in addition to former state Sen. Mike Johnston. For the Republicans, Larimer County Commissioner Lew Gaiter and former state Rep. Victor Mitchell are in the race. Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is ineligible to seek a third term. This is expected to be a hotly contested race.
