My guess? Fundraising numbers for the third quarter were less than stellar, and higher-ups in the party finally had the leverage to persuade Frazier to take a stab at the 7th Congressional District instead. Challenging Ed Perlmutter will be a taller task than taking on Michael Bennet in some ways, but Frazier must have garnered some concessions to take on the two-term incumbent Democrat.
At least that theory comports with the rumblings I’m hearing. We should know more soon.
