Colorado: Romanoff Considering House Run
Posted at 2:58 p.m. on Jan. 15
Former Colorado Speaker Andrew Romanoff is thinking about challenging Republican Rep. Mike Coffman for the 6th District in 2014, according to a Politico report.
“I haven’t made much secret of the fact that I’d like to return to public service, and that’s one path I’ve looked at,” he told the paper. “I haven’t made any decision.”
Romanoff is a Bill Clinton loyalist who unsuccessfully challenged Sen. Michael Bennet in the 2010 Democratic primary.
Romanoff shied away from the 6th District contest last cycle.
Coffman defeated Democratic nominee state Rep. Joe Miklosi by about 2 points. Coffman had been in a safe GOP seat, but 2010 redistricting threw him into a pure tossup district. Democrats invested heavily in the race, and it is at the top of their target list in 2014.
