A conservative county commissioner won the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Colorado on Tuesday, setting up a critical swing-state race with Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet.
Darryl Glenn led the five-way, crowded contest with 37.5% of the votes, according to the Associated Press, with 84% of the precincts reporting.

Once considered a long shot, Mr. Glenn impressed Colorado Republicans—particularly conservatives—with his speech at the state GOP convention earlier this year. And in recent days, he seemed to gain momentum after picking up the endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and other national conservative figures.

Republicans had initially been hopeful that the race would produce a heavyweight challenger to Mr. Bennet in a state that is virtually evenly carved up between Democrats, Republicans and voters who don’t identify with either party.

But after more popular GOP politicians including U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman, Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers, and George Brauchler, the prosecutor in the Aurora theater shooting trial, declined to jump in, those hopes dimmed as lesser known figures joined the fray instead.

The race will be one of several closely watched contests that will determine which party controls the Senate next January. Democrats must win a net of five seats, or four if they win the White House and secure the vice president’s tiebreaking vote, to regain control of the chamber. Continue reading

Colorado Republican voters in the primary election ending Tuesday are choosing whether one of a pair of political-novice businessmen or one of a trio of former and current officeholders, each with business backgrounds, will take on Democratic U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet in one of the most closely watched contests in the country this fall.

And voters from both parties in the by-mail election also are determining their nominees in several Colorado House and Senate races that pit pro-business candidates against incumbents or challengers.

As of Monday morning, 24 percent of Republicans who received mail-in ballots had already voted, and 21 percent of Democrats had, said Secretary of State Wayne Williams.

The only contested statewide race in the primary is the five-way GOP U.S. Senate contest between businessman Robert Blaha, former Aurora City Councilman Ryan Frazier, El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn, former Colorado State University athletic director Jack Graham and former state Rep. Jon Keyser. Incumbent Hancock is unopposed for the Democratic nomination.

With public polling in the race nearly non-existent and the candidates taking a backseat to the presidential primaries for most of the contest, the primary could break for any of the five candidates.

Blaha and Graham have extolled their business backgrounds — Blaha is a longtime entrepreneur and Graham the former owner of a reinsurance company — and touted that they’ve never held elected office.

Meanwhile, attorneys Glenn and Keyser and consulting company owner Frazier have spoken about their mix of public service and private-sector experience. Continue reading

  • The deadline for voters to return their 2016 Primary Election ballot is June 28 at 7:00 p.m.
