Attorney General Cynthia Coffman is seeking the Republican nomination for Governor, and she’s finally hired herself a campaign staff as she seeks to make it onto the June Primary through the caucus/assembly process. Coffman announced her new campaign team this morning, and we’re still rubbing our necks from the double-take it caused:
