Phil Weiser wins race as Brauch­ler con­cedes

The Denver Post - - DENVER & THE WEST - By Ben Botkin

Repub­li­can Ge­orge Brauch­ler on Wed­nes­day morn­ing con­ceded the Colorado at­tor­ney general’s race to Demo­cratic op­po­nent Phil Weiser — the last of the state con­sti­tu­tional races to be de­cided.

Weiser won with 49.8 per­cent of the vote, while Brauch­ler gar­nered 47.3 per­cent, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est Colorado Sec­re­tary of State’s Of­fice re­sults Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. Lib­er­tar­ian Wil­liam F. Robin­son III picked up the rest of the votes.

Brauch­ler said he called Weiser on Wed­nes­day morn­ing to con­grat­u­late him and told him “any­thing he needs just to call on me.”

Weiser said he’s look­ing for­ward to work­ing with Brauch­ler, the district at­tor­ney in the 18th Ju­di­cial District, on is­sues mov­ing for­ward. Weiser said he’s com­mit­ted to a “seam­less tran­si­tion” as he suc­ceeds Repub­li­can At­tor­ney General Cynthia Coff­man, who opted not to run for a se­cond term.

Brauch­ler, who has an­other two years left as DA, said it’s too soon to talk about which po­lit­i­cal po­si­tions he may pur­sue in the fu­ture.
