With just five weeks remaining until Colorado voters start to receive primary ballots in the mail, candidate endorsements are falling as thick as crabapple blossoms on a blustery spring day. Here are some of the endorsements that have been announced over the past week:
U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, the California Democrat high on lists of possible 2020 presidential candidates, is backing Joe Neguse, one of two Democrats running for the open 2nd Congressional District seat.
The dominance of west Denver Democratic legislators in the State Capitol will be over at the end of the 2018 session. In the House chamber, Speaker Crisanta Duran, HD-05, and Rep. Dan Pabon, HD-04, are both term limited.
Denver Democrat Gabriel Thorn, a retired Army major with two Bronze Stars, is jumping in the crowded primary for the House district represented by Speaker Crisanta Duran, who faces term limits after next year's election.
