AURORA, Colo. (AP) - Democratic state Sen. Morgan Carroll will challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman for Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.

The Aurora Democrat announced her candidacy Tuesday for a district both parties consider a toss-up because of its large bloc of unaffiliated voters. But Coffman has proven to be a formidable opponent, fending off his two previous opponents with ease.

The 6th District encompasses the suburbs north, east, and south of Denver with its largest population center in Aurora. The district was historically a GOP stronghold until it was redrawn before the 2012 elections.

Carroll is the Democrat’s leader in the state Senate. She served in the state House before that.
