Lowe and Wolfson will have a chance to answer questions and state their positions just a week before the primary ballots drop.

Gregg Rippy, the chair of the Garfield County Republicans and a former state representative, will moderate the only debate in Eagle County before the primary election on June 28.

Both Lowe, an Eagle County resident, and Wolfson, of Routt County, advanced to the primary ballot through a vote April 8 in Colorado Springs where delegates to the convention listened to their presentations. Both met the 30% threshold for inclusion on the primary ballot.

Under legislation created by a previous statewide vote, voters registered as Republican or Democrat will receive primary ballots for their respective parties while unaffiliated voters will receive two ballots, one for each party, and will need to choose which one to submit. The winner of the primary race will face the Democrat in the November election.
