Republican candidate and former state Rep. Lang Sias is challenging Democratic incumbent Dave Young for the role of Colorado treasurer.
Both candidates ran unopposed in their respective primaries.
Sias ran two unsuccessful campaigns to represent Senate District 19 and lost a GOP primary in the 7th Congressional District before being elected in 2016 to represent House District 27 for a full term. This came after winning an appointment a year earlier to fill a vacancy in the seat.
Sias is an attorney, former Navy fighter pilot and TOPGUN instructor. In 2018, GOP gubernatorial nominee Walker Stapleton picked Sias as his lieutenant governor. They lost to Democrat Jared Polis and his running mate Dianne Primavera.
Young was a schoolteacher for 24 years before entering politics. He also acted as state representative for House District 50, which encompasses Greeley. Young was appointed in 2011 before being elected in 2012 and reelected in 2014 and 2016. He then won the election for state treasurer in 2018.
