DENVER (AP) - The former chairman of Denver Republicans and the state party's legal counsel has decided to run for state GOP Chairman.
The Denver Post reports Ryan Call sent a letter to Republican leaders Tuesday saying he's running now that Dick Wadhams has decided not to seek a third term.
Call's strongest competition is expected to be State Sen. Ted Harvey of Highlands Ranch.
Wadhams notified the state GOP central committee Monday he wasn't running in a reversal of last month's announcement that he would seek another term as state party chief. In a memo, Wadhams said he was grateful for the support of a majority of Republicans, but added that he was tired of those who don't understand the state party's role.
