Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ryan Frazier makes ballot

KUSA -Denver Judge Elizabeth Starrs has ruled Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ryan Frazier will appear on the Republican primary ballot in June.

The decision comes after the Colorado Supreme Court lessened the number of votes he needed to qualify, and asked Denver district court to rule on the validity of other signatures.

Starrs ruled Frazier has 40 additional valid signatures. In her order, Starrs wrote the court is "satisfied that the additional signatures were from registered Republican voters from the 3rd Congressional District."

Secretary of State Wayne Williams first decided Frazier shouldn't make the ballot because he didn't have enough votes in the 3rd district-the same district where John Keyser fell 86 signatures short before heading to court to secure his primary spot.

Frazier joins Keyser, Darryl Glenn, Robert Blaha, and Jack Graham.

Jerry Eller filed paperwork to become a write-in candidate.
