Just when you thought the Colorado gubernatorial race couldn’t get any crazier, another candidate dispute has rocked the November ballot.
Victoria Adams has dropped out as the running mate for unaffiliated candidate Jason Clark, claiming Clark hates women and mistreated his campaign staff.
Clark says he dropped her from his campaign on Tuesday and will find a new running mate. He denies mistreating women and says the stress of the campaign was too much for Adams.
Rich Coolidge, spokesman for Secretary of State Bernie Buescher, says this has never happened before and the secretary is seeking legal advice to see if Clark’s votes will be counted. He said it’s a state requirement that a gubernatorial candidate have a running mate.
