Six Colorado Republicans running for governor made their first pitches Sunday night about why the GOP faithful should back them in the party’s crowded — and probably growing — primary for the 2018 election, speaking at a forum where their differences already began to show.

Some early issues in the contest arose, including infrastructure and education. The members of the group also touched, and differed, on President Donald Trump and Twitter, as well as on their news media preferences, health care, same-sex marriage, marijuana’s legal status and immigration.

Those candidates at the Foothills Republicans-sponsored event at the Pinehurst Country Club are Steve Barlock, who was Trump’s campaign co-chairman for Colorado; George Brauchler, the district attorney for the 18th Judicial District; Larimer County Commissioner Lew Gaiter; former Parker mayor Greg Lopez; former state lawmaker Victor Mitchell; and Doug Robinson, a former investment banker and Mitt Romney’s nephew.
