Penfield Tate (pictured left) and Dick Wadhams (right) have joined Denver CBS-owned station KCNC as political analysts for the 2016 elections.

The two will join political specialist Shaun Boyd every Friday at 6:30 p.m. to go over the hottest political stories of the week. They’ll also provide analysis during the October U.S. Senate debate between Michael Bennet and Darryl Glenn.

“Penfield and Dick are two of the smartest political voices in Colorado, and both are capable of providing an analytical view of their own party candidates as well as others,” said news director Tim Wieland.

Tate has been elected to the both the state Senate and the House of Representatives. He’s also served in the administrations of the former Denver mayor Federico Pena and former Governor Roy Roper.

Wadhams served as Colorado Republican state chairman from 2007 until 2011. He’s also managed the campaigns for a Colorado Governor and two U.S. Senators.
