Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser is kicking off his campaign for re-election Saturday with an appearance in Pueblo, followed by a series of events over the next five days that will take the Democrat up and down the Front Range and into the mountains.
“I am honored to have the support of so many valuable leaders past and present from across Colorado," Weiser said in a statement.
"This underscores how our work protecting consumers, addressing the opioid epidemic, defending the rule of law, improving our criminal justice system, and protecting our land, air, and water is resonating around the state.”
Weiser, a former University of Colorado Law School dean and one-time Justice Department official in the Obama administration, has yet to draw a Republican opponent.
