billl1Jan 6, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Governor of Colorado, Bil Ritter has no plans of running for a re-election. Bill Ritter who was elected in 2006 as the first-term democrat in a crucial stage, is considered as one of the potential political leaders of the coming years. Bill Ritter’s decision to not go for a re-run in the general election came out in the open, after being spilled by a reliable source. The two democrats who revealed Bill Ritter’s decision were not permitted to declare the news publicly. The Governor of Colorado thought it fit to declare his decision about his political plans in a news conference.

Such a decision by Bill Rights has made the political leaders of the Republican Party come up with their views. Dick Wadhams, the Republican Party Chairman, commented that since Bill Ritter was a weak contender, he realized that on his own and took such step. Scott McInnis, who is a GOP gubernatorial candidate opined that the polls had shown that Bill Ritter was not that strong enough to win a general election and he himself was aware of it.

The big names who are considered as the top contenders to step in the shoes of Bill Rotter includes the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, former House Speaker Andrew Romanoff and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper. The decision of Bill Ritter is considered as an act of cowardice by the members of the Republican Party. Some considers that it was the right that he decided not to go for a general election because he stands very less chances of winning it.
