Congressional Candidates To Debate In Westminster

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (AP) – It’s October in an election year – that means political debates are heating up.

At least four Denver-area congressmen are headed to Westminster for a candidate forum at the Metro North Chamber of Commerce. Democratic Reps. Ed Perlmutter and Jared Polis are scheduled to appear and debate their Republican challengers, Joe Coors and Kevin Lundberg.

Republican Rep. Cory Gardner will face Democrat Brandon Shaffer, and Republican Rep. Mike Coffman will also appear. Coffman’s Democratic opponent, Joe Miklosi, declined to attend, citing a scheduling conflict.

Colorado’s seven-seat House delegation is now held by four Republicans and three Democrats. That means that any seat changing hands could give Democrats control of the entire House delegation from Colorado.
