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.

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.

Republican Victor Mitchell topped a straw poll conducted Wednesday night by the Colorado Hispanic Republicans at a forum for gubernatorial candidates in Westminster. The entrepreneur and former state lawmaker garnered 38 percent of the vote, running well ahead of four other Republicans who participated in the forum and one — former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo — who didn't make it because of a bout with the flu.
