Arapahoe County businessman Wil Armstrong has filed to run for Congress, becoming the third Republican vying to succeed U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo.
Armstrong is seeking the GOP nomination in the 6th Congressional District along the metro area's southern boundary.
He faces Secretary of State Mike Coffman of Aurora, and state Sen. Ted Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch. In addition, Sen. Steve Ward, R-Littleton, has indicated he might run in the primary.
Armstrong, 40, of Greenwood Village, is the son of former U.S. Sen. Bill Armstrong. The candidate is the chief executive officer of Blueberry Systems, a software development and consulting firm.
Tancredo, a Littleton Republican running for president, announced in October he would not seek re-election in 2008.
Republicans dominate the district, which consists of Douglas and Elbert counties, and portions of Arapahoe, Jefferson and Park counties.

The field to succeed Tom Tancredo is getting crowded. What’s important is to find another Republican whose views are similar to Tancredo’s.
I have all the respect in the world for Armstrong Sr., but know next to nothing about the son.
What’s most important here is to stop Mike Coffman. He has a real nerve attempting to abandon the Sec of State’s office and put at risk Ritter getting to choose his successor. Bill Armstrong is probably the most revered Republican in Colorado. If his son is anything like him, the residents of this district should give strong consideration to supporting him.
I took it as a truthful tone. But that’s just me.
FWIW, I don’t think “nuke Mecca” will win us the GWOT. He’s a passionate conservative, but some of his rhetoric backfires.
