Colorado: Frazier trades US Senate bid for Congress run
DENVER – Republican Ryan Frazier says he will drop his U.S. Senate bid and instead run for the 7th Congressional District seat held by Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter.
The Aurora City Council member made the announcement at a news conference Thursday in Adams County.
Frazier says he wants a government that is limited and fiscally responsible that the Democrat-controlled Congress has tread a “dangerous course.”
Frazier was one of at least six Republicans looking to challenge Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet next year but he trailed in fundraising.
Perlmutter is serving his second term after being elected in 2006 to represent the 7th District in Denver’s western suburbs.
