BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Republicans are narrowing the field in primary races for governor and U.S. Senate.
Nearly 4,000 Republican activists are gathered in Boulder for an assembly to narrow down the list of candidates for statewide offices.
Five Republican candidates are seeking spots on ballots in the June 24 primary. One, two or three candidates could win a spot, depending on the results of the party's complex assembly balloting rules.
Two additional Republican governor hopefuls - Reps. Bob Beauprez and Tom Tancredo - are expected to appear on primary ballots. They submitted petition signatures instead of participating in the state assembly. The winner will challenge incumbent Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.
Republicans are also deciding a three-person Senate primary contest led by U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner. The winner faces Democratic Sen. Mark Udall.
