STATE BILL COLORADO
Colorado’s House Democrats are suddenly going the wrong way when it comes to maintaining their still-sizable advantage during the coming election year.
The Democrats on Tuesday lost their speaker pro tem, Kathleen Curry, who switched to unaffiliated.
Curry’s decision casts much uncertainty on her House District 61 race. According to The Aspen Times, the latest voter breakdown for District 61 shows 15,424 unaffiliated voters, 13,580 Democrats and 10,674 Republicans.
Curry registered as an unaffiliated voter too late to run as one in next year’s election; she would to run as a write-in candidate, which she admitted to The Times isn’t an easy feat.
As a result, State Bill has updated its election tracker to note Curry’s write-in status.
