DENVER (KDVR) — Three Republican candidates were running in the 2022 primary against Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet. Joe O’Dea was the winner of the race.

O’Dea describes himself as a political outsider and conservative as he is the CEO of a Colorado construction company, according to his website. The issues O’Dea is running on are to defend American workers, reduce the debt, and make a secure and strong America.

O’Dea defeated Colorado Rep. Ron Hanks and write-in candidate Daniel Hendricks.

O’Dea will run against Sen. Michael Bennet, the incumbent, who did not have a primary challenger. They will face off in the general election on Nov. 8
