  • Democratic electorate more female-driven

    While roughly the same number men and women registered as Republicans and unaffiliated voters participated in the election earlier this month, women made up roughly 60 percent of Democrats who voted.

    Dutch Creek honors veterans

  • 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.
