UPDATE: FOX 31's Eli Stokols confirms:
On Tuesday, Newell issued a statement to FOX31 Denver confirming her daughter’s post.
“Yes, the rumors are true,” Newell said. “I’m seriously considering a run at Congressional District 6 in 2014.
“In the last couple of months, citizens and political leaders across the state have come to me with the same inquiry. People in our district want a woman in Congress who has a strong record of bipartisanship and moderate values.”
As posted to Facebook by state Sen. Linda Newell's daughter yesterday, nothing to report beyond this yet:
This places Sen. Newell into a growing pool of at least interested Democrats in competing against incumbent Rep. Mike Coffman in 2014. In addition to already-likely CD-6 primary contenders Andrew Romanoff and Karen Middleton, we're hearing increased buzz about a possible run by state Rep. Rhonda Fields of Aurora. All of this interest is being driven by a growing recognition among Democrats of Rep. Coffman's vulnerability in the newly competitive CD-6, after underdog 2012 candidate Joe Miklosi came substantially closer than expected to ousting Coffman. Coffman's recent announcement that he is not running for the U.S. Senate in 2014, choosing instead to defend his seat, also underscores his newfound vulnerability.
As for the Democrats chomping at the bit to take Coffman on next year, we don't expect they will all last through, or even until, the primary season–but there's definitely going to be a robust primary of some description.
