Update, 6/11: Final results are in. As expected, Walker Stapleton moves forward. Gubernatorial candidate Joe Gschwendtner and state senate candidate Mark Hurlbert both failed to make the ballot — the former by a mere 242 out of 10,500 votes. “They won’t have Joe G to kick around anymore.”
One day to go for the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to verify whether candidates who opted to petition onto the ballot collected a sufficient number of signatures to move ahead. The updated list is here (PDF).
As of 5 PM on Thursday, five candidates (including Jane Norton for U.S. Senate) have qualified for the ballot and one was disqualified. The fate of two Democrat and five Republican campaigns are up in the air, including:
- State treasurer hopeful Walker Stapleton, who likely has enough to qualify
- Gubernatorial contender Joe Gschwendtner, who looks like he’ll be cutting it very close
- State senate candidate Mark Hurlbert, whose chances don’t look too good
Tune in tomorrow to find out what happens.
