STATE BILL COLORADO
Republican Shawn Rodwell, a school counselor for the Arickaree Liberty school districts, on Friday filed paperwork to run for the Senate District 1 seat held by GOP incumbent Greg Brophy. Rodwell is a resident of Anton. Democrat Michael Bowman previously filed to run in the district.
State Bill Colorado puts SD-1 in the category of seats that are “less than competitive” or “not competitive,” owing to Republicans voter registration there of 51 percent. Unaffiliated voters make up 29 percent of the district, and Democrats trail with 21 percent. Eight of 19 Senate seats up in November are deemed competitive because no party has more than 40 percent of registered voters.
State Bill has updated its 2010 Election Tracker, below, to note Rodwell’s candidacy.
