He once sought swing voters in the swingiest of swing seats and ran for president of Arizona as the favorite son candidate — according to his mom, at least — but Gary Swing is trying on a different party for next year's election. After several congressional runs on the Green Party ticket and a Boiling Frog Party bid for the U.S. Senate that didn't make it to the ballot last year, Swing announced Thursday he's joining the Unity Party of Colorado and plans to run in the 1st Congressional District.

Congressional candidate Darryl Glenn likes to tell a story about a woman he met at a farmer’s market earlier this summer. “She was an older black lady, independent,” he says. “I stopped by and introduced myself, and she was like, ‘You’re a — Republican?’” He scowled like he was sniffing a carton of milk that had turned. “‘I’ve never seen a Republican,’ she said. ‘Why should I even listen to you?’ And I was like, ‘Ma’am, I just want to have a conversation with you.’” Then he leans in, animated at the memory of their exchange.

Two Lakewood Republicans are considering whether to challenge U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter's bid for a seventh term in the 7th Congressional District, Colorado Politics has learned. Jerry Natividad, who mounted a brief campaign last year for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Michael Bennet, and Mark Barrington, who has run for legislative and city council seats, both said they're thinking about running for the seat — particularly after Perlmutter said in April he was running for governor and wouldn't seek reelection, then dropped from the gubernatorial field in July and then declared in August he was back in the congressional race.

Declaring that the 5th Congressional District needs someone who will "fight for what he knows is right" and not just vote the right way, Darryl Glenn, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Colorado last year, announced on Monday that he's running for the seat held by incumbent U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, another Colorado Springs Republican.
