Excerpt from the November ballot. Despite being the home to the University of Northern Colorado (Teacher’s College) you might conclude the county is “conservative”.
The only county resident holding a state office is David Young, the State Treasurer.
With the addition of a new Congressional seat (census) the county as a whole is now split between the old 7th Congressional District and the new 8th Congressional District.
The contrast between the GOP candidate and the Democrat candidate are stark.
The 8th now includes my address and the home of the 7th District congressman, Ken Buck (R).
My sense of the political mood is Colorado may well go from being deep Blue to faint Purple. Inflation, bad roads, and crime are on people’s minds. Colorado is #1 in the country for car theft.
For the record, I am registered as an Independent. I’ve voted in every single election since achieving my majority and rarely voted any straight party line.
