Heidi Ganahl, the only Republican to hold a statewide elected office, filed Friday as a candidate for governor, according to the Secretary of State’s website.

Ganahl is an entrepreneur who founded the pet care service Camp Bow Wow and currently serves as a University of Colorado regent.

She told Colorado Politics she is making an “announcement” Tuesday in Monument, but did not specify what she’d say. The filing shows a “Heidi for Governor” candidate committee, which is the finance arm of a campaign.

Ganahl declined to comment further on her candidacy to a Denver Post reporter at the CU Board of Regents meeting Friday. She did say, however, that she intends to continue in her role as a regent.

The Douglas County resident has long been preparing for a run, penning regular columns in the Colorado Springs Gazette that take aim at the Democratic leadership and hosting a statewide podcast program.
