Coffman is running for election as Attorney General of Colorado. She ran unopposed for the Republican nomination in the primary election. Incumbent AG John Suthers (R) cannot seek re-election in 2014 because of term limits.[2][1]

The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

Race background

Incumbent attorney general John Suthers, a Republican first appointed in 2005 and elected to two subsequent four-year terms, is barred by term limits from running again in 2014.

Vying for the open seat is Democrat Don Quick, who is considered "a strong contender to flip the seat."[3] Quick and Republican Cynthia Coffman, who currently serves as deputy attorney general under Suthers, ran unopposed for their parties' nominations in the June 24 primary. They will face off in the general election on November 4 along with Libertarian nominee David Williams.

Against the backdrop of Colorado's "purple" partisan landscape, this race, as well as other statewide seats opening in 2014, present competitive enticement to the non-incumbent party to assert control over new offices and territory.[3]

An early race ratings report from Governing named Colorado's attorney general seat as "vulnerable" to partisan switch heading into the 2014 elections.
