STATE BILL COLORADO
Eric Olsen of Aurora has stepped forward to challenge freshman Rep. Su Ryden in Colorado’s House District 36. He filed paperwork recently to run as a Republican. Olsen, a 1991 West Point grad, works as an office services coordinator for EnCana Oil & Gas.
Ryden handily defeated her previous GOP opponent, Kathy Green, in 2008.
Because Democrats enjoy voter registration of more than 40 percent in HD-36 (the number actually is 42 percent), State Bill Colorado places this district among the 43 in Colorado that are “less than competitive” or “not competitive.” Thirty-three percent of voters here are unaffiliated, and 25 percent are Republican.
State Bill has updated its Election Tracker, below, to reflect Olsen’s candidacy.
