An early look at the 2018 Republican race for Colorado governor

NOTE: This story, originally posted on Nov. 17, has been updated to reflect the changing field.

In Colorado it’s never too early to start thinking about the next big race. Here in a state that went for Hillary Clinton in November, Republicans are looking at 2018, when Colorado will elect a new governor.

Colorado has only elected one Republican governor since John Arthur Love left office for the Nixon administration in 1973, and that was Bill Owens, who served from 1999 to 2007. (When Love left, his Republican lieutenant governor filled out the last two years of his term, leaving office in January 1975. So another way of putting it is that Colorado has only had one Republican governor in the last 41 years.)

With Gov. John Hickenlooper term-limited, 2018 will be the first time in eight years when Republicans will have an open seat over which to battle.

Conversations with Republicans over the past few months illuminated some key players and issues at stake, hinting at how the field might shake out in Colorado on the road to 2018, and how a new primary system might affect the race.

Seriously? A 2018 race already?

Yep. Sorry.

But Republicans are already floating names, potential candidates are talking about running, and trial balloons are in the air. Already three people have confirmed to The Colorado Independent that they are contemplating a run. The potential field is likely to draw from a pool of establishment Republican stalwarts, statewide officeholders, law enforcement circles, and rebel insurgents. Of course, in the Trump era, there could be an opening for a non-politician businessman or businesswoman who could break through.

“I expect a big field,” says Colorado Republican Party Chairman Steve House, who ran for governor in 2014, considered running again this time, but ultimately decided against it.

All right, let’s get to the names
