Joe Neguse -- "I go by Joe" -- on his run for Secretary of State

As Scott "Honey Badger" Gessler stepped away from another run for the Secretary of State seat in order to go for governor, Joe "I go by Joe" Neguse stepped into the race for that position, as the sole Democratic candidate. Neguse believes that young people should be as involved in the political process as their parents -- and he's proving it by running for statewide office after first winning a seat on the University of Colorado Board of Regents.
