Colorado’s Republican race for the U.S. Senate will be a five-man contest after all: on Wednesday, a district court judge ruled that candidate Ryan Frazier had collected enough valid signatures to qualify for the June 28 primary, according to a spokeswoman for Secretary of State Wayne Williams.
The decision by District Court Judge Elizabeth Starrs is the latest turn in a weeks-long battle over which GOP candidates should appear on the ballot.
“What we’ve said from the very beginning is we knew we had enough signatures to qualify,” Frazier said. “This is not a fight we chose to have but it’s a fight we took on.”
Roughly a month ago, Williams declared that three candidates — Frazier, Jon Keyser and Robert Blaha — hadn’t gathered enough valid signatures to make it on the ballot by petition.
