Former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy (D) won 50 percent of the vote at the Democratic caucuses Tuesday, well ahead of her challengers.
Rep. Jared Polis (D) received 33 percent and former state Sen. Mike Johnston (D) took 9 percent of the vote. These are the results from 23,168 Democrats that attended the neighborhood-level caucus meetings.
Kennedy: “I am so grateful for the incredible showing of support. I could feel the momentum building as I traveled the state.” (Denver Post)
State Treasurer Walter Stapleton (R) seemed to come up the most among Republicans at the caucus meetings over other fellow candidates, state Attorney General Cynthia Coffman (R), former state Rep. Victor Mitchell (R), and investment banker Doug Robinson (R).
“Still, other Republicans who backed Stapleton in the straw poll said they weren’t ready to endorse him. The indecision is reflected in a recent survey of Republican voters by Magellan Strategies, which found that heading into the caucuses, nearly four in 10 likely primary voters remained uncommitted.” (Denver Post)
