Democratic gubernatorial candidate Noel Ginsburg has decided to follow the footsteps of U.S. Rep. Jared Polis and travel both paths to secure the party’s nomination — by gathering petition signatures and taking his campaign to the state assembly.

Those candidates plus former state Treasurer Cary Kennedy will be the only three candidates at the Democratic caucuses on March 6 and state assembly on April 14.

Still going solo through the petition route is Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne and former state Sen. Mike Johnston.

From the Durango Herald:

Ginsburg said he’s put on the miles meeting Democrats over the last year.

“Because I’ve been everywhere is why I can do this,” he said. “It’s not a campaign strategy so much as who I am.”

So does this mean that up until now, Ginsburg was just being a politician and not being true to himself?

Or like Polis, is he just hedging his bets to snatch a nomination?
