U.S. Senate

Democrat Michael Bennet is seeking a third term; he is unopposed for renomination. The Republican nominee will be either businessman Joe O'Dea or State Rep. Ron Hanks. O'Dea occupies the more moderate lane. Hanks was at the Capitol on January 6, and continues to spread conspiracy theories on the 2020 presidential election.


Democratic Gov. Jared Polis is seeking a 2nd term; he is unopposed for renomination. Republican voters will choose between an establishment candidate, Heidi Ganahl, and the more conservative Greg Lopez. 

Secretary of State

Incumbent Democrat Jena Griswold is unopposed for renomination, although could face a competitive general election. Three Republicans are vying to oppose her. The most mainstream appears to be former Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder Pam Anderson. Occupying the far right lane is Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters. A vocal believer that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, she was indicted earlier this year on charges related to a security breach of her county's election system. 

U.S. House

These primaries will be contested using redistricted boundaries, including a new congressional district due to population growth.

District Party Comments
3 R Lauren Boebert is seeking renomination to this fairly safe Republican seat. The controversial freshman has picked up an intraparty challenge from State Sen. Don Coram. While Boebert is favored, Coram is generating some crossover Democratic support.
5 R Doug Lamborn is seeking a 9th term. He has drawn three challengers, most notably State Rep. David Williams. In a bit of market positioning, Williams wanted to appear as "Dave 'Let's Go Brandon' Williams" on the ballot. That attempt was rejected. Whoever emerges will be favored in the general election.
7 R Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter is retiring. State Sen. Brittany Pettersen will be the party's nominee. Three are competing for the Republican nomination. The district is rated Likely Democratic, but according to Cook Political's David Wasserman, "Republicans view this Biden +14 seat as a possible takeover in a "wave" scenario."
8 R Located in Denver's northern suburbs, the state's new district is seen as the most competitive in the general election. Four Republicans are competing for the nomination. The winner will meet Democratic State Rep. Yadira Caraveo, who won the nomination at a party assembly in April.
