Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, a Democrat, has launched a bid to unseat Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, a Republican.

Garnett says filed paperwork Thursday to enter the race. He has been the Boulder County prosecutor for nearly 15 months.

Garnett recently criticized Suthers, who is seeking a second term, for joining a national lawsuit to block the federal bill overhauling health care.

No Republicans are running against Suthers.
