Colorado Caucus

Two state senators are drafting legislation that would reschedule the Colorado's caucus in presidential election years and put more of a spotlight on the state.

Colorado Springs Republican Doug Lamborn and Boulder Democrat Ron Tupa say it would be worth paying the penalty for violating party rules if Colorado can get a seat at the table.

Current party rules call for Iowa to have the first caucus in the nation with a 15-day head start over other states, and New Hampshire to have the first primary in the nation with a seven-day lead over other states.

Iowa also has a state law that says its caucus will be eight days before any other state.

States that violate that window lose half of their delegates.
