Epps takes lead in Denver's House District 6 race
Attorney and activist Elisabeth Epps overtook Katie March on Wednesday evening in the Democratic Party primary race for House District 6 after the latest batch of preliminary numbers were made public.
Why it matters: The winner has an easy path to represent District 6 — which spans east Denver to areas near downtown — and could shape the Dem's legislative agenda in the forthcoming year.
By the numbers: Epps led by 373 votes, per the latest numbers from Denver Elections.
- Denver Elections staff told Axios Denver on Wednesday evening that it still isn't clear how many ballots are left to be counted.
- Epps trailed on Tuesday, with March holding a 34-vote lead at 11:30pm.
What else: Wanda James took the lead over Johnnie Nguyen in the Democratic primary for CU Regent.
