Alec Garnett Over 50% After Caucus

House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, right, is backing Alec Garnett as his successor in HD-2.

Alec Garnett is 20% taller than Mark Ferrandino and is backed by 54% of caucus-goers.

According to an email sent out today by HD-2 candidate Alec Garnett:

Last Tuesday night was caucus night in Colorado.  Neighbors and friends came together from across the district and we captured more than 50% of the delegates elected. This means at county assembly we should be well above the 30% threshold to make the ballot.  I cannot tell you how deeply humbled I am by the support I’ve earned.  

Garnett is one of three Democrats running to replace term-limited House Speaker Mark Ferrandino in a Denver seat that will be effectively decided by a Primary. The other two Democrats running in HD-2 are Owen Perkins and Aaron Silverstein.


We don't really have anything else to say, but this sentence will help balance out the picture on the right.

    Actually, my daughter is a delegate for Owen Perkins.   She received a call from Silverstein saying he was dropping out and is backing Perkins.

    I'm a delegate for Garnett myself.  I 'd guess Silversatein's withdrawal gives Perkins a good shot to make the ballot, albeit at the second line.   This seat is a pretty same dem seat so Ds can afford to indulge their favorites without worry about who can win in November.

      Good for your daughter for participating. That ought to bring the average age down to what? 67? I know I went to my first Caucus at 52 and the company made me feel like a sweet young thing again.

  2. This is Aaron. I did not endorse anyone.

    I misunderstood my daughter.   It was Owen she talked to and who told her you (Aaron) had dropped out of the race.   She said he didn't use the word "endorse" but that you two had worked together in the past and he, Owen, at leave gave the impression that you, Aaron, was supporting him.
