Republican businessman Barry Farah will announce Wednesday that he is mounting an eleventh-hour campaign for governor, saying in an interview that “there’s no excitement for anyone in the race.”

Farah, 56, must qualify for the ballot through at the Republican Party’s state assembly April 14 because he entered the race a day after the deadline to submit petitions. He dismissed his late entry into a crowded primary race, saying, “I don’t think it’s fatal.”

His top competition in the Republican assembly is Attorney General Cynthia Coffman, whose moderate stances on litmus-test issues may irk the conservative loyalists that typically attend.

“I have not seen a genuine conservative that has a credible chance of winning in November being represented at the assembly,” Farah told The Denver Post in an interview before his announcement.
