Colorado: An Endorsement in Race to Replace Udall

Former state Senate President Joan Fitz-Gerald, running in the competitive 2nd district Democratic primary, received the endorsements last week of the National Education Association and the Colorado Education Association.

Fitz-Gerald is running to replace Rep. Mark Udall (D) in the Democratic-leaning 2nd district, which is centered in Boulder. Her primary opponents are wealthy Democratic Party activist Jared Polis and environmental activist Will Shafroth.

Udall is vacating his seat to run for Senate.

All three candidates are in the hunt for the nomination at this point. Because the 2nd district is solid Democratic territory, the winner of the primary will likely cruise to victory in the general election.
