DENVER — Colorado's 2012 Legislature may not have achieved greatness. It may not have risen above partisan divide to solve complex problems and unify a state. It may not have addressed the state's economic malaise or found a way to reliably fund education for the long term.
LAKEWOOD-- Joe Coors Jr., 69, great grandson of 19th-century beer-magnate Adolph Coors, formally announced today that he is running to unseat Democratic Congressman Ed Perlmutter, who is now serving his third term in Colorado's seventh district.
