Sol Sandoval emerged Tuesday night as the only candidate to qualify for the Democratic primary ballot through the Assembly process in the 3rd Congressional District, confirming his place to face incumbent Republican Lauren Boebert in the general election.

Pueblo will be one of at least three candidates hoping to secure a Democratic nomination in the June 28 primary ballot. Sandoval, 38, has a decade of social work experience and is also involved in community organizing and activism. He has never held an election office before …

“I showed you how I know how to raise money, something that we have to beat Boebert,” he said before the vote. Sandoval says he has raised about $ 1 million so far and that financial picture will become clearer after the financial release later this month.

Don Valdez Exclude from the ballot, as well as the other three non-contestants. This is a performance that positively sets Sandoval up for the June 28 primary, where he faces a newcomer candidate best known for his belly-shifting campaign launch video and a former Aspen city councilor who plundered huge sums of money into the contest while making promises.
