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.

STRIKE UP THE BAND ... It is, after all, March Fourth. The celebration started a few days early in Colorado, when John Philip Sousa IV, the grandson of the composer and marching band icon, was on hand to endorse a pair of longshot Republican candidates — Greg Lopez, the former Parker mayor running for governor, and Casper Stockham, who lost a bid to unseat Democrat Diana DeGette in the 1st Congressional District last time around and is giving it another go this cycle.

UPDATE: According to officials with the Colorado secretary of state's office, the candidates who had difficulty filing campaign finance reports earlier this month, including those whose "major contributor" donations initially showed up twice in posted reports, weren't to blame for the mishaps. It turns out, a procedure on the secretary of state's side to convert spreadsheets filed by campaigns' agents wasn't handling the data properly — a glitch officials say they didn't fully grasp was botching the reports until days after the filing deadline. While some campaigns — and veteran compliance agent Marge Klein — took responsibility for what they thought were their own errors, below, the secretary of state's office says they were doing everything properly.
