Republican state Rep. Justin Everett handily won a straw poll conducted Monday night after a bipartisan forum for state treasurer candidates at Colorado Christian University in Lakewood. The three-term lawmaker from Littleton, nicknamed "Justin Neverett" and "Dr. No" for his penchant to vote against legislation, led the 10 candidates on the ballot with 34.9 percent of the vote.

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.

Republican state treasurer candidate Brian Watson plans to report raising roughly $215,000 for the quarter just ended, his first in the race — almost precisely the amount reported so far by all the other candidates running in crowded primaries in both parties — and plans to petition his way onto the June primary ballot, Colorado Politics has learned.

Cary Kennedy loves this place. Over there is a field where she played high school sports, and there’s the cross-country course her daughter runs. She grew up nearby, attending Manual High School. Off in the distance, catching the sun, that’s the gold dome of the state Capitol, where she spent four years as state treasurer, and before that worked as policy director for the House Democrats.
