This debate is co-hosted by the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce. Free and Equal Elections has invited all the ballot-qualified candidates to participate in this debate. The Bob Beauprez (R) campaign said that they would consider participating in the debate if Governor John Hickenlooper (D) confirms. The Hickenlooper campaign said that he would potentially be available to fly in to attend the debate. Free and Equal has connected the two campaigns together to discuss their participation.

Dr. Jill Stein (2012 Green Party presidential candidate), Free and Equal founder Christina Tobin, Tiny Martinez of the 420 Rally/Denver Global Marijuana March, and a surprise video guest, will present opening remarks before the debate begins on the subject of opening the debates nationwide to all ballot-qualified candidates to create a level electoral playing field.
