Arvada lawyer Lindsey Daugherty said Tuesday she's in a race for the Colorado House next year.

Daugherty joins three other candidates seeking to replace Rep. Tracy Kraft-Tharp, a Democrat who is term-limited in District 29.

Daugherty joins Amber Hott of Westminster and Victoria Lopez of Arvada in the Democratic primary. Vanessa Warren-Demott is the lone Republican in the race.

Daugherty, a first-time candidate, practices juvenile and family law, managing her own law firm since 2013. In her announcement, she touted her work with "often-underserved communities," often volunteering her services.

She is a member of the Women’s Bar Association, Colorado Bar Association, American Association of Justice and Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.

Daugherty graduated from Thompson Valley High School in Loveland and attended the University of Northern Iowa on a soccer scholarship, her campaign said.

She received her law degree from the University of Denver and was a law clerk for then-U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, former U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin (on the Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee investigating for-profit colleges), and the White House Domestic Policy Council under the Obama administration.
