Larry Crowder and James Casias are locked in a tight contest for a Senate district seat that may determine the balance of power at the state Capitol. It’s a race charged with ideological power, even though Crowder and Casias line up very closely on the political spectrum. Crowder is an older man with deep roots in southeast Colorado and dedicated to serving the public interest. Same with Casias. The men use interchangeable phrases when taking about the challenges today’s information and service economy poses to the residents of the hard-pressed western prairieland that makes up the district, where farming, mining and drilling have shaped life for generations.
