Primary Elections Voted Down

colorado-state-seal-300The house bill that would have instituted a primary system to select Colorado presidential candidates was shot down yesterday in a Senate committee on a party line vote. The bill was being considered because the use of caucuses to select the states nominees had recently come under scrutiny by both Republicans and Democrats. The bill passed out of the house yesterday but there was speculation that it would have trouble in the senate due to its inclusion of unaffiliated voters in the primary process. With this year’s legislative session ending today, this issue is now dead until the next session convenes.
