Tune in this week when State Treasurer Walker Stapleton Victor Mitchell, Doug Robinson and Greg Lopez will debate each other on the issues and their qualifications to be the Republican nominee for the governor’s race.

The debate is set for 7 p.m. Thursday and will air on Chanel 20 KTDV.

The presumed frontrunner is Stapleton, and Mitchell is considered his chief challenger, according to some polling.

We’ll be watching to see who best represents Colorado’s spirit, and is best suited to keep our economy strong against the constant barrage of out-of-state, liberal, special interest groups.

We want strong leadership skills, and a fighter who can take on the Democrat in the General Election, whether it’s Jared Polis or Cary Kennedy.

We want a winner, and we expect one to emerge Thursday night.
