BENT COUNTY — You may be thinking—didn't we just have a primary? That was the presidential primary in March.

This June primary election includes all other offices depending on where you live, including a county commissioner seat and a state senate seat.

All of us will have a US representative race to decide, a CU Regent, a State House Rep, and a District Attorney.

The congressional seats in southern Colorado are expected to get much attention this election.

Bent County is in Congressional District 4 -which is open after Congressman Ken Buck left his position in March.

Six Republicans and three Democrats are hoping to replace him.
