Incumbent Regent Stephen Ludwig, despite having beaten his 2012 opponent once already, has a challenging race to run. Not only does most of the electorate have no idea what a regent does, it’s a statewide race. According to The Westword, Ludwig is currently working on an ambitious tour of Colorado’s 64 counties in ten days.
Fortunately, the grind hasn’t affected Ludwig’s sense of humor:
I’m Progressive Cowgirl, and, having seen one too many politicians sporting brand-new cowboy boots at the start of election season, I approve of this message.
