The Casper Star Tribune has the scoop on Colorado Politics tonight…
…Reporting that Senator Joan Fitz-Gerald is very seriously considering a run for Governor.
Fitz-Gerald, of Golden, is one of only two women in the nation who serve as president of a state senate. She told a Summit County Chamber of Commerce committee Tuesday she knows a run for governor would be expensive and physically draining.
This is probably no real surprise – we’ve discussed this here many times before – and a competitive third candidate on the Democratic side would probably liven up the race a bit.
Of the remainder of the field:
Among other potential Democratic candidates, former Denver District Attorney Bill Ritter and wealthy think tank founder Rutt Bridges have said they will run. Former Lt. Gov. Gail Schoettler has been mentioned as a possible candidate, and U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar has not ruled out running.
All while the two Republican camps continue to BASH each other over a race that’s still 14 months out.
