RE: 2018 ELECTION CYCLE IN COLORADO
DT: SEPTEMBER 7 2017
It is usually a good idea to investigate the state of ballot play in various states to investigate the case of investing in campaigns. The case of play in Colorado is a matter of concern and hence we are looking into some aspects to determine the viability. This is for the proper arrangements prior to the general election scheduled to be on November 6, 2018.
The incumbent governor John Hickenlooper is set to depart from the office having exhausted his two term limit. Those who are to fight for the chance to succeed him include: Lt.Gov.Donna Lynne who has filed for the chance to run for this post and the Republican Doug Robinson. In other matters affecting the political landscape included: Perlmutter consideration to run for congress after dropping out of the Governor’s race and veteran Todd Michen to run for Jared Polis’s Congressional seat.
In respect of controlling the legislature, there are 8 districts that that will determine this. These are legislative districts: 44,35,30,26,17,5,41,17,10 and 5 since they have vicious competitions in them. (Black, 2016)
Lastly are the opportunities and challenges that the election cycle will present to Colorado. A major downside of the election cycle is that the Democrats will field a glut but there is still in fighting within the party, with the Donald Trump’s win reasoning well within them. More to that is the fact that Americans see no good in both the major parties: the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. (O’Keefe & Weigei, 2017)
