Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff to visit Aspen on Thursday for public event

One of the Democratic candidates running to unseat Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner next year will be in Aspen for a campaign stop Thursday afternoon.

Andrew Romanoff, former Colorado House speaker, is scheduled to appear at the Aspen Fire Station (420 E. Hopkins Ave.) at 3:30 p.m. for a meet-and-greet with members of the community, according to a statement.

“Romanoff will answer questions from attendees and discuss his record of fighting for universal health care, a stronger environment and a better education for all Coloradans,” the statement said. “The event is open to the public.”

Romanoff, who has most recently advocated for better mental-health care in Colorado, is vying with former state Sen. Mike Johnston, former Colorado U.S. Attorney John Walsh and former Obama administration official Dan Baer, among several others, for the Democratic Senate nomination to challenge Gardner in 2020.
