Republicans and Democrats offer starkly different post-Hickenlooper visions for Colorado's role — or resistance — in implementing Trump administration policies.
Millions of dollars have gushed into the governor's race in recent weeks.
The governor’s race could easily be the most expensive state campaign in Colorado history. But much of the spending won't be made public.
Lynne is the lieutenant governor. She came to Colorado from New York City 13 years ago to run Kaiser's health care operation.
The race for governor is firming up, and along with it the race for campaign funds.
Lynne joins a crowded Democratic primary field that includes former state Sen. Michael Johnston and U.S. Rep. Jared Polis and former state treasurer Cary Kennedy.
"I am actively exploring a bid," Lynne told The Denver Post. "I want to make sure that I have everything in order."
Lieutenant Gov. Donna Lynne has visited every Colorado county since she took office a year ago. As the former chief executive officer at Kaiser Permanente, she's also become an influential adviser to Gov. John Hickenlooper on health care issues.
