Colorado State Sen. Jean White, R-Hayden, shown here in front of the state capitol building in 2011, is running for re-election after serving her first term in the state senate. The incumbent is vying for the Senate District 8 seat with fellow Republican Randy Baumgardner, of Hot Sulphur Springs, who represents House District 57.

When asked how she spends her free time, Jean White laughed. “Well, first of all, I don’t have free time,” the Colorado state senator from Hayden said. “But if I did, I have a little bit of an artistic bent to me and … I enjoy just practicing watercolor painting and other types of art,” she said. White also enjoys reading — “I love Steinbeck,” she said — but finding time to get into a good book is no easy task, either. It’s no wonder. The first-term Republican senator has her hands full, and her schedule isn’t likely to relax now that she’s running for re-election.
