Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne (D) “noted that she’s been get­ting calls of sup­port, es­pe­cially since” Rep. Ed Per­lmut­ter (D) dropped out of the race, “and that she planned to make a de­cision after the end of the month. ‘It is about what’s right for the Demo­crat­ic Party,’” she said.

When “asked at her first news con­fer­ence wheth­er she would run for gov­ernor” Lynne “offered an em­phat­ic ‘No.’ But since then, aides to Lynne said she’s be­come more open to the idea.” (Den­ver Post)
