The Republican field for governor now appears in place with the announcement of Mike Kopp.
Kopp, one of the most respected young Republicans in legislative leadership in recent years, will have a challenge breaking out of the crowded field. He will rapidly need to accumulate money and organization to take on previous gubernatorial candidate and former Congressman Tom Tancredo and Secretary of State Scott Gessler. Also in the race is State Senator Greg Brophy from Eastern Colorado.
