Ryan Frazier has taken his fight to remain a U.S. Senate candidate to the Colorado Supreme Court.

Frazier's campaign filed papers with the court on Friday.

Earlier this month, the Colorado Secretary of State's office ruled Frazier's campaign had not collected enough valid signatures from each of the state's seven congressional districts to put his name on the ballot.

Frazier appealed that ruling. Eventually a court ruled that his name could be printed on the ballot in order to get them out on time, but said that votes cast for Frazier may not count if his campaign could not prove that enough of the rejected signatures should, in fact, count.

The Republican candidate talked about that process with Anne Trujillo on this week's Politics Unplugged.

He also told Trujillo why he thinks he is best choice to face Democratic incumbent Michael Bennet in the general election in November and whether or not he will vote for Donald Trump in that same election.

Politics Unplugged airs Sundays at 4 p.m. on Denver7.
