DENVER — Some of the biggest names in Colorado politics already are looking to run for governor in 2018.
Prospective candidates include U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter and former U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar on the Democratic side. State Treasurer Walker Stapleton and District Attorney George Brauchler are exploring bids on the Republican side, the Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/2hzQtN7).
Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper will be term-limited after eight years in office.
With almost two years to go until the next election, prospective candidates are remaining coy about their intentions, Colorado State University political scientist Kyle Saunders said.
