Update: I forgot to mention Fort Collins city councilman Diggs Brown as another candidate being touted to run as a Republican in the 4th CD. Thanks to Night Twister for the reminder.
Will Republicans have an interesting primary in Colorado’s 4th Congressional District? Who knows, but it won’t be for lack of trying.
Names like Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck and State Representative Cory Gardner (Yuma) have been floated as leading contenders to take on newly-elected Betsy Markey.
But CU Regent Tom Lucero yesterday released the names of his policy advisors and finance team. The list of campaign advisors and fundraisers features some notable and influential names, including business leader Steve Schuck as well as leading radio talk show personalities Hugh Hewitt and Mike Rosen.
Lucero jumped into the race early and appears to be aggressively working on the campaign. We’ll find out soon enough whether this approach pays off, but he just might make it a race in which conventional wisdom rates him an underdog. No matter how things unfold, let’s just hope the primary stays clean.
We all have bigger fish to fry.
