A recent poll showed Udall with less than 50 percent approval (45%) and a quarter (24%) of the public unable to rate him. After five years, he’s not making much of an impression.
Republicans, after a slow start, have three legislators either announcing their intent to run or seriously investigating the race.
- Senator Randy Baumgardner. Western Slope senator, conservative, colorful, but no access to money or a population base.
- Senator Owen Hill. New state senator, bright, good resume from Colorado Springs.
- Representative Amy Stephens, former House Majority Leader, strong campaigner from Colorado Springs.
