Update: Declared winners are in bold.
Saira Rao says she’s challenging 11-term incumbent Diana DeGette because establishment Democrats have lost touch with their voters.
It appears that Rao isn’t the only Democrat feeling disaffected by their Beltway overlords — five out of Colorado’s seven congressional seats have primary challenges this election cycle.
On the Western Slope, three Democrats are battling it out for the right to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton in the general election.
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman has two Democrats lining up to challenge him, but as we now know, Democratic leaders in Washington have already ordained Jason Crow as the winner over Levi Tillemann months ago.
The only open seat is the one being vacated in the 2nd District by U.S. Rep. Jared Polis, who is running for governor.
Here are the latest election results from all the congressional primary races.
