Al White to run for state senate

In completely unsurprising news, liberal Republican Representative Al White is "98%" sure he will run for term-limited State Senator Jack Taylor's 8th District seat. It has long bee speculated that White would run for this seat.

White is the single most liberal member of the Republican delegation now serving under the gold dome in Denver.

Rumors about possible primary opponents include Gregg Rippy (another of Colorado's most liberal former state legislators) and an as yet unconfirmed report that a local county commissioner might throw his hat in the ring.

As yet there is no indication that a real conservative might run against White.
