The Buck starts here

Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck, a Republican known for his hard-line views on illegal immigration, is officially jumping in the Colorado Senate race.

Buck launched his Senate campaign website today at BuckforColorado.com, as he begins to prepare running against Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.). Buck will likely face Aurora City Councilman Ryan Frazier in the Republican primary, who announced that he was forming a Senate exploratory committee earlier in the month.

All eyes are now on former congresman Bob Beauprez, who is also mulling over a Senate campaign and has higher name identification than both Buck and Frazier.
