Colo. parties narrow candidates

LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) – A big day for both Democrats and Republicans in Colorado. The parties gather Saturday to narrow candidates who want to run this fall.

The most-watched contest is a Senate challenge to Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet from another Democrat, former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff. The party nominee won’t be chosen until August, but Romanoff is hoping to force the incumbent to submit petitions to get onto Democratic primary ballots.

Republicans also have a Senate contest, but former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton has decided to bypass the GOP assembly and will petition onto ballots. That means her rival, Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, is poised to win the Republican assembly vote.

Republicans also have a gubernatorial contest.
