Steamboat Springs There will be a primary on the Republican side for Colorado House District 26.
Routt County residents Dave Moloney and Chuck McConnell made the ballot during Friday’s district assembly in Denver. The winner of the June 24 primary will challenge Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush, D-Steamboat Springs.
Moloney, with 29 delegates, will be the top name on the ballot, and McConnell will be second, with 23 delegates, according to Routt County Republican party chairwoman Tina Kyprios.
“We had a couple other folks stand up and speak about how fortunate we are to have two folks running,” Kyprios said.
Whoever wins the primary, the party will get behind, she said.
This will be the only primary race for Routt County voters of either major party.
Steamboat Springs resident Gaylon Kent is the Libertarian candidate for U.S. Senate. There will be no Libertarian primary for the race.
