El Paso County Commissioner Darryl Glenn has announced he will run for U.S. Senate in 2016. The Republican cites issues like the economy, immigration, and veterans issues as among his main concerns. In a statement, Glenn said his early announcement shows he’s committed to the time and networking necessary to create what he’s calling a “comprehensive strategic plan.”
Glenn has served on the Colorado Springs City Council and was recently elected to a second term as a commissioner.
Democrat Michael Bennet currently holds the senate seat.
