Renfroe to Run in CD-4; McNulty Next to Jump In?

UPDATE #3: FOX 31's Eli Stokols:

State Rep. Tim Dore, R-Elizabeth, confirmed Monday that he was still thinking about a run; and Rep. Frank McNulty, R-Highlands Ranch, is rumored to be weighing a campaign in the Fourth C.D., which now includes a good chunk of his home turf in Douglas County, although another GOP lawmaker in the House told FOX31 Denver Monday that a McNulty run was doubtful.

And former state Rep. B.J. Nikkel, R-Loveland, is also still weighing a bid.

Nikkel, who in 2012 was the first Republican lawmaker to vote in favor of a civil unions bill, would be able to self-fund a campaign in the early stages; and, as a woman who is politically moderate, she might draw financial support from national GOP organizations and committees.


UPDATE #2: Add another potentially big Republican name to the list considering a challenge to the not-so-inevitable Ken Buck in CD-4–former state Rep. B.J. Nikkel, who served as district director under Marilyn Musgrave, is seriously considering jumping in the race according to sources.


UPDATE: Via Lynn Bartels, count Weld County Commissioner Barbara Kirkmeyer in:


Republican Sen. Scott Renfroe confirmed over the weekend that he is going to run for Congress in CD-4, joining Ken Buck in a field that is only likely to grow in the coming weeks.

Rumor has it that former House Speaker Frank McNulty is also preparing to enter the GOP field for the seat being vacated by Rep. Cory Gardner. We'll update more as news develops–and we've got a feeling it will.

    Frank Fucking McNulty? Please don't reward that POS with a seat in Congress.

  2. Republican 36 says:

    If former Speaker McNulty enters the race, Ken Buck is in real trouble. If he enters the race, and no one else from Douglas announces, he can dominate the delegate count in Douglas at the 4th CD assembly, the second largest county in the district, while Weld County, the largest, may very well be split between several candidates.

    barabara kirkmeyer is too intelligent to win a Republican nomination in CD 4,   Is there time to get her a frontal lobotomy and then pose her with her family with everyone holding assault rifles?   Wait,kl that's been done.

    Does McNulty already live in CD4 or would he have to move?

  5. JeffcoBlueJeffcoBlue says:

    Nikkel? CD-4 GOPers aren't intelligent enough to nominate an actual decent human being.

  6. DavieDavie says:

    Ken Buck is the Rodney Dangerfield of the GOTP.  Nobody gives him any respect (except resident troll AC)

    How interesting–

    A chance to line up a career appointment sucking at the tit of hated big govt in a safe red district–see all the anti-govt tea partiers lining up for a shot.
