(What a strange ending for Waller. He probably should have dropped out months ago, or at least soon after the GOP State Convention, so why now? — Promoted by Colorado Pols)
As Eli Stokols at KDVR (And later, everyone else) reports:
State Rep. Mark Waller announced Monday afternoon that he is ending his campaign for attorney general and asked his fellow Republicans to unify behind Cynthia Coffman, FOX31 Denver was first to report.
Honestly, Waller’s decision came about because Republicans already had unified behind Coffman, Colorado’s deputy attorney general, who won support from nearly 70 percent of the delegates at the GOP state assembly earlier this month.
After Waller barely made the primary ballot earning just over 30 percent at the assembly, the writing was on the wall. [Emphasis Mine]
This will free up only a minimal amount of resources for other Republican candidates. As Stokols points out, Waller had only minimal support anyway. While this news is interesting, it doesn't really change much.
