Colorado is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. The primary is considered closed, but unaffiliated voters may choose to affiliate with a party on election day in order to vote.

A March 2013 report in Governing named Colorado's attorney general seat as "vulnerable" to partisan switch heading into the 2014 elections. Incumbent attorney general John Suthers, a Republican first appointed in 2005 and elected to two subsequent full 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." Undeclared Republican hopefuls as of the report's release date include Mark Waller, the State House Minority Leader, and attorney general office deputy Cynthia Coffman. 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.
