The race for Colorado’s House District 7 — currently held by term-limited Speaker of the House Terrance Carroll — just got a little more crowded.
Democratic Party activist Russell Green has filed paperwork to vie for the Democratic nomination against Jon Goldin-Dubois, Blake Harrison, Mark Mehringer and Angela Williams.
House District 7 is one of the most politically lopsided districts in Colorado. Its registered voters are 55 percent Democrat, 31 percent unaffiliated and 13 percent Republican, which means the winner of the Democratic primary is a virtual shoo-in for the seat.
Of the 65 House seats, State Bill Colorado places House District 7 among the 43 districts that are “less than competitive” or “not at all competitive.”
State Bill Colorado has updated its election tracker to reflect this candidacy.
