This is an interesting twist. Yesterday, former Colorado GOP Vice Chair Mark Baisley announced via Facebook that he would seek the state GOP Chairman role, joining fellow Republicans George Athanasopoulos, Jeff Hays, and Kevin McCarney. Below is his announcement.

Baisley noted that his preferred choice was Adams County GOP chair, Anil Mathai, who opted to not run. The question is who this benefits. Does he take support from Athanasopoulos or Hays? From what we’ve heard on the ground, he would take more votes from Athanasopoulos. That begs the question – does Athanasopoulos stay in the race? We asked him – he said that he’s still in it to win it.

There you have it, PeakNation™. The race just got very interesting.
