Shaffer will face off against Angry Angie Paccione and Eric "Which Party Do I Belong To" Eidsness in the Dem primary.
They all want to run against conservative hero Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave, R - Fort Morgan.
Shaffer visited Washington D.C. last week with his wife, Jessicca, and after returning to Colorado yesterday he made up his mind to run against Republican incumbent Marilyn Musgrave in 2008. Last week Democrat Angie Paccione filed paperwork to run again in 2008 (Paccione narrowly lost to Musgrave last fall), and Shaffer says that he plans to talk with her soon about trying to avoid a primary.
"Angie is a friend of mine," says Shaffer. "I would hope that she would put her personal ambitions aside to give us the best chance possible to see change in the fourth congressional district and to win that seat."
