The mayor of Thornton, Jan Kulmann, is running for Colorado’s newly created 8th congressional district, marking the 5th Republican to join the primary race for the open seat.
Kulmann was elected mayor in 2019 after previously serving on the city council.
“Solving problems is what I do,” said Kulmann in a statement announcing her candidacy. “But I also know, sometimes you’ve got to stand up and fight. America is so much better than what we have become. Now is the time to elect an outsider who gets results.”
