In the final throes of a rough-and-tumble GOP primary for the state's top job, the four candidates have demonstrated a rare showing of bipartisanship.
In the Colorado governor’s race, only two Republicans — former Congressman Bob Beauprez and Secretary of State Scott Gessler — didn’t hesitate when asked what seemed like an easy-enough question for the GOP field: Name a Democrat serving in the legislature who you admire and why.
Beauprez chose Sen. Cheri Jahn of Wheat Ridge and Gessler selected Sen. Pat Steadman of Denver.
Former Congressman Tom Tancredo couldn’t come up with anyone and former Sen. Mike Kopp struggled, which was a surprise considering he only left the state Senate in 2011. He eventually chose Sen. Lois Tochtrop of Westminster.
