It's not exactly a tidal wave. But the three Republican members of the House who have gone on record as supportive of state Senator Pat Steadman's civil unions bill suggests Democratic House sponsor Mark Ferrandino is right to be confident that the bill will pass if it could somehow climb over likely House committee hurdles.
Gay rights group One Colorado this week released a list of fifty state candidates it will endorse and throw its fundraising and grassroots volunteer support behind for the 2010 election, now only weeks away. Two Republicans made the list, Larry Liston, a northeast Colorado Springs social conservative, and Kevin Priola, a freshman Representative from Brighton northeast of Denver and a family businessman.
Three weeks after Election Day, Brighton Democrat Dave Rose is ready to give up the race for House District 30 after county officials certified vote totals on Monday showing him trailing Republican Kevin Priola 11,936 to 11,504 votes. The margin — 1.84 percent out of more than 23,000 votes cast — is greater than the 0.5 percent that would have triggered an automatic recount. "I'll go along with the final tally of losing by 432 votes," Rose told the Colorado Independent on Tuesday. "It's very disappointing," he added.
The Democratic state House candidate from Brighton who withdrew his concession the day after the election — citing uncounted provisional ballots — said he was hopeful but also expected "the worst" on Wednesday as election officials began sorting through the uncounted ballots.
