We've updated The Big Line with a few new additions.
On the Governor Line, we've added Republican Sen. Greg Brophy. We don't have any specific information that Brophy may take a shot at the title, but he's gone out of his way of late to criticize Hickenlooper and has emerged as the most vocal member of the Senate Minority. Make no mistake: Brophy cannot beat Gov. John Hickenlooper, but he could certainly win a GOP primary and spend a year raising his name ID for something else down the line.
On the CD-3 Line, we've added both Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia and Sen. Gail Schwartz as potential challengers to incumbent Republican Rep. Scott Tipton. The inconsistent Tipton is a weird candidate in a strange district, but the fit has worked for two cycles. Both Garcia and Schwartz would be strong challengers for Tipton, however, and it's unlikely that there would be a Democratic primary fight.
