El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams launched his campaign for secretary of state Wednesday with endorsements from heavy hitters such as Attorney General John Suthers.

Williams is seeking to replace the Secretary of State Scott Gessler who is running for governor.

Two Democrats have filed for the office: Ken Gordon, former majority leader in the state Senate, and University of Colorado Regent Joe Neguse. So far, Williams is the only Republican in the race.

In addition to Suthers, Manitou Springs Mayor Marc Snyder, Ramah Mayor Keith McCafferty and Teller County Commissioner Norm Steen said they supported Williams for secretary of state.
