DENVER — Colorado's Democratic gubernatorial primary ballot got a step closer to crowded Monday as Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne turned in nominating petitions to the secretary of state's office, one day before the deadline. Her campaign delivered petitions with almost 25,000 signatures, a spokesman said — more than twice the number required to make the ballot.

Mark Williams, a former chair of the Boulder Democratic Party running in the 2nd Congressional District, submitted nominating petitions Friday to the Colorado secretary of state — likely setting up a June primary with former University of Colorado Regent Joe Neguse for the seat held by U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, a Democratic candidate for governor.

TREASURER HUNT ... There are six Republicans running for state treasurer, and if current trends continue, primary voters could have nearly that many to choose from in June. Two of the candidates — Denver businessman Brian Watson and state Rep. Polly Lawrence of Roxborough Park — have turned in petitions, which are awaiting verification but were both gathered with the assistance of top-notch firms, so chances are decent they'll both make the ballot.
