Colorado Politics: Competitive primary races in Colorado House and Senate races see hot fundraising

The latest campaign finance reports filed with the Secretary of State show hot fundraising for several primary races for the state House and Senate.

As of May 29, the hottest race is the Democratic Senate District 19 primary contest, where candidates are looking to succeed Sen. Rachel Zenzinger, D-Arvada.

House District 21 in south El Paso County features the only Republican primary in the House targeting an incumbent. Rep.

She also loaned her campaign $6,000, bringing total funds to just over $41,000.
