State At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Cyn­thia Coff­man (R) “said Tues­day that she is ex­plor­ing wheth­er there is a path to vic­tory as she con­tin­ues weigh­ing wheth­er to join the crowded 2018 race. … Coff­man de­clined to say by when she would de­cide wheth­er to jump in­to the race. ‘I have a per­son­al timeline.’”

Coff­man cited Rep. Ed Per­lmut­ter’s (D) de­cision Tues­day to end his cam­paign “an ex­ample of how the dy­nam­ics can change when you’re farther out from a race.” (Den­ver Post)

SET THE RE­CORD STRAIGHT. Per­lmut­ter “said fun­drais­ing was not the reas­on he ex­ited the race. He said he will re­port about $350,000 from his first quarter since an­noun­cing a run three months ago, with 1,200 con­tri­bu­tions, 700 of which were un­der $100, and at least 80 per­cent came from Col­or­ado.” (Col­or­ado Polit­ics)
