Economy, energy and Trump dominate Colorado governor’s race

DENVER (AP) — Colorado Democratic U.S. Rep. Jared Polis is banking on his wealth, entrepreneurial experience and anti-Donald Trump sentiment in his quest to succeed term-limited Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper in November.

His Republican opponent, state Treasurer Walker Stapleton, argues Polis’ ideas for tackling underfunded schools and roads and adopting green energy standards will jeopardize the state’s strong economy.

Colorado hasn’t had a Republican governor since 2007, though Republicans control the state Senate and hold a 4-3 edge in its congressional delegation.

Democrats hope an anti-Trump “blue wave” will flip the state Senate and consolidate control of the Capitol.
