The Libertarian Party had contested statewide primary elections in Colorado yesterday, for both governor and U.S. Senator. According to ballot access expert Richard Winger, "This was the first time Colorado had provided a statewide primary for any party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, since 1914 and 1916, years in which the Progressive (“Bull Moose”) Party had Colorado primaries."
In the race for governor, Jaimes Brown defeated Dan "Kilo" Sallis, with 1,423 votes (64%) to 803 (36%). See Denver Post coverage.
In the race for U.S. Senator, Maclyn Stringer narrowly defeated John Finger, with 1,176 votes (52%) to 1,065 (48%). See Denver Post coverage.
