Colorado Republicans are taking a “unity tour” from Larimer County to Pueblo this Saturday to show support for Darryl Glenn, the El Paso County commissioner who emerged victorious from a five-way primary with his eyes on Democrat Michael Bennet’s Senate seat.
At the helm will be Sen. Cory Gardner, whose 2014 win over Democratic incumbent Mark Udall Glenn hopes to emulate.
In a statement announcing the tour, Colorado GOP Chairman Steve House looked forward to another win.
“We are extremely excited the party is unified behind Darryl Glenn as our U.S. Senate nominee. Darryl Glenn and Cory Gardner will make an outstanding team for Colorado in the U.S. Senate, and we are looking forward to showing Colorado all of our party is united and ready to win in November.”
Political analysts are giving Glenn longer odds, but it’s not over until Nov. 8. In fact, it’s just beginning.
In addition to Gardner and House, Glenn will be joined by his rival in the primary, former Colorado State University athletic director Jack Graham, CU Regent candidate Heidi Ganahl, Secretary of State Wayne Williams, Rep. Ken Buck (who tried and failed to take Bennet’s seat in 2010) and Attorney General Cynthia Coffman.
For people in the Denver metro area, there are stops in Lakewood, Greenwood Village and Douglas County.
