It’s just a free-for-all for under-employed Democrats wanting to run next year against U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner.
Diana Bray (who?) is the most recent to join the fray.
The 58-year-old psychologist hails from Englewood, and she’s a Democrat climate activist. But we repeat ourselves.
It sounds like she’s just going to ride the coattails of U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York socialist, and her Green New Deal.
Her campaign platform centers on killing the oil and gas industry nationwide, like she tried to do last year with Proposition 112.
The best she can probably hope for in the field of growing Democrats joining the race is to raise her state name ID from zero to 4%.
Also lining up at the gate to race in the Democratic primary are these announced candidates:
Former state Sen. Mike Johnston
Former state House Speaker Andrew Romanoff
Former congressional candidate Stephany Rose Spaulding
Biomedical scientist Trish Zornio
Organizer Lorena Garcia
Activist Danielle Kombo
Pharmacist Dustin Leitzel
Advocate Keith Pottratz
Potential Candidates still thinking whether to challenging Gardner:
U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter
U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse
Former U.S. Attorney John Walsh
State Sen. Kerry Donovan
Former Colorado Department of Higher Education Director Dan Baer
Former Boulder County Democratic chair Ellen Burns
That’s 15 potentials lining up to take on Gardner.
Democrats only need one more to host an NCAA basketball tournament.
