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.

Democrat Amy Padden picked up an endorsement in the state attorney general's race from the Colorado BlueFlower Fund, her campaign announced Thursday. The left-leaning organization endorses Democratic women who are pro-abortion rights. Padden is the only woman in a crowded Democratic primary field that includes former University of Colorado law school dean Phil Weiser, Rep. Joe Salazar and Denver lawyer Brad Levin. George Brauchler is the only candidate so far in the Republican primary.
