Republican gubernatorial candidate Heidi Ganahl tests positive for COVID-19

This comes days after Denver Mayor Michael Hancock announced his positive COVID results.

DENVER — Colorado gubernatorial candidate Heidi Ganahl has tested positive for the coronavirus and will be sidelined from campaign events this week, a campaign spokeswoman told Colorado Politics Monday morning.

The University of Colorado regent and the leading Republican challenger to Democratic Gov. Jared Polis, is vaccinated and experiencing mild symptoms, Lexi Swearingen said.

Ganahl won't be attending the candidate forum scheduled Thursday in Fort Lupton, which would have been the first time all the major GOP candidates for governor were to have appeared on stage together. The forum is sponsored by the Republican Women of Weld.

Ganahl and members of her family learned they had the virus over the weekend, her campaign said.
