Mike Coffman filed late last week for his eventual run as Colorado’s next Secretary of State (unless we need an interim appointment if/when Davidson moves on).
He is currently the only candidate filed.
It’s been a bumpy road for the current Treasurer; his once gubernatorial campaign ended after less than a quarter (pun intended) and now he ships out June 6 to report for Active Duty in the Marine Corps.
But his expected date of return is mid-March, leaving plenty of time for a short but sweet State Run.
Bill Ray, the once Treasurer and GOP Communications Director and now Policy Analyst for Referendum C & D, is presently slated to run the race.
Whichever D Candidate the other side puts forward will eventually need to run against a proven statewide candidate and recently returned War Hero – offering a huge anchor for the Republican down ballot candidates.
