Republican HD27 Candidate Christina Carlino withdraws

Applications for a replacement will be accepted until July 28; finalist interviews set for July 29


Republican Colorado House District 27 Candidate Christina Carlino submitted her intent to withdraw from the race on July 20, leaving a ballot vacancy the Colorado GOP hopes to fill by the end of the month.

Carlino said she withdrew from the race “due to unforeseen family issues.”

Colorado HD27, recently redrawn due to statewide redistricting, encompasses parts of western Arvada and Golden including the Leyden and Candelas neighborhoods. Democrat Brianna Titone is the current HD27 representative. She initially won the seat in 2018 and is running for reelection this year.

Now, the Colorado GOP looks to fill Carlino’s spot on the ballot. A Vacancy Committee will be accepting applications until 12:01 a.m. on July 28 and will conduct in-person finalist interviews at 6:30 p.m. on July 29  at the Arvada Police station in Westwoods, located at 6644 Kendrick Drive.

Qualified candidates must be a U.S. citizen, at least 25 years old, a resident of HD27 for the past 12 months and a registered Republican. Applicants may submit a resume and cover letter to HD27 GOP Chair Sarah Jacobs at by the July 28 deadline.

Jacobs invited interested Republicans to apply for the vacancy, calling for folks to help the party.

“We have a duty to continue the work that Christina started with driving forward our ‘Commitment to Colorado’ and putting people over politics,” Jacobs said. “Dedication and hard work go a long way. This is a chance to help your fellow Republicans win this newly drawn district.”
