DENVER — After a Wednesday night of confusing court orders and subsequent corrections by the Secretary of State’s Office, it appears Ryan Frazier and Robert Blaha will appear on the ballot in June for the Republicans.
Both men are running for the GOP nomination to go up against Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet in November. The duo will join Darryl Glenn, Jack Graham and Jon Keyser on the ballot in the Republican primary.
But it is still possible any votes Frazier receives will not be counted. That’s because his qualification remains in doubt and a final decision won’t be made until next week.
Lynn Bartells with the Secretary of State’s Office said the office “couldn’t wait any longer” to give the green light to clerks to print ballots as they had to be mailed to servicemen and women overseas.
Blaha is calling for the resignation of Secretary of State Wayne Williams as a result of the confusion. Williams is strongly dismissing any of those criticisms.
The primary is set for June 28.
