  • Get ready for a wild ride, Colorado

    Just 52 weeks from now, we’ll decide who’ll succeed John Hickenlooper as Colorado’s governor. All indications are we’re in for a wild ride.
       At the end of October, 26 active candidates were listed as gubernatorial candidates on the Secretary of State’s website. And shortly after a poll suggested former Congressman Tom Tancredo would run best among Republican candidates, he jumped into the race as well.
