DENVER, Colo. - Republicans hoping to topple Democrats' one-seat majority in the Colorado Senate will take a first step next Tuesday when they pick their candidates in two key legislative races in the Denver suburbs.

Political observers say their challenge will be making sure they select candidates that can appeal to the crucial bloc of independent voters during the general election, instead of picking candidates that may be seen as too conservative to win in November.

The high-stakes primaries are in Senate District 19, which covers Lakewood, and Senate District 22, which is in Arvada. Republicans Mario Nicolais and Tony Sanchez are competing in the Lakewood seat, and Republicans Lang Sias and Laura woods are running in the Arvada district.
