Will the Colorado State Legislature Change?

Democrats control the state legislature with a one seat advantage in the Senate and five in the House. The Senate is where the main battle is with seven seats getting the most attention and four of them in the state’s leading battleground county – Jefferson.

Only five House seats appear in play, meaning Republicans could reduce the Democratic majority, but are unlikely to change the leadership.

Very few legislative handicappers see the Senate going Republican due to the Democrats’ continued dominance in money and campaigns, but most admit a pro-Republican tide could change the local dynamics and give Republicans Senate control.
