Colorado Votes: The Stakes for the Statehouse

Listen Now

The presidential race isn't the only nailbiter in Colorado this election season; control of the state legislature is also up for grabs.

That list includes everything from civil unions to the fate of any budget surplus. Host Ryan Warner talks with CPR's Megan Verlee about the stakes at the state Capitol.
