Carole Partin, president of the Pueblo Education Association, will announce her candidacy for the state House District 47 seat on at 1 p.m. Sunday on the steps of the Pueblo County Courthouse, The Pueblo Chieftain reports.
State Bill Colorado considers HD-47 one of the 22 statewide House districts that are “truly competitive” based on voter registration totals. The district is 38 percent registered Democrats, 32 percent registered Republicans and 30 percent unaffiliated.
Keith Swerdfeger, a Republican, previously filed paperwork to run for the GOP nomination in HD-47.
We’ve updated our 2010 Election Tracker, below, to reflect Partin’s candidacy.
