Poll: Who Will Win in HD-23?

  • 0 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

State Representative Max Tyler hasn’t had real opponent since he was first appointed to fill the HD-23 seat after Gwyn Green‘s 2009 resignation. His 2010 opponent, Edgar Johansson, was lambasted as a carpetbagger for moving into the district just days before the deadline to run for office.

Despite the fact that the district leans further to the left in 2012 than it did in 2010, Republican Rick Enstrom definitely has a better chance to take down Tyler than Johansson did. Enstrom, of the eponymous Enstrom Candies, will be able to both self-finance and tout his record as a small business owner by virtue of the toffee everybody likes to pick up at the mall.

Both candidates have their weaknesses. Tyler’s likening of disadvantaged children in the education system to “maggots” came up in 2010 and will likely find its way into the 2012 debate. For his part, Enstrom will catch some flack for giving misleading statements while testifying in front of the state legislature.

The 2012 campaign for HD-23, then, might be the most interesting race the district has seen since the volleys passed between Green and Ramey Johnson a few years ago. We wouldn’t necessarily say the race is anybody’s game, but it certainly will be competitive.

We want to know whether you think Tyler will return to the legislature in 2012 or if Enstrom can pull it off.  Remember, tell us who you think will actually win, not who you’d like to win.  

A poll follows.
