CO Tuesday Afternoon Roundup

U.S. Senate

•Ken Buck’s comments on Meet the Press drew quick national attention, as his “gay gaffe” moved the focus to the culture war and social issues.

“The race has intensified”:

•American Crossroads, tying Sen. Michael Bennet to President Barack Obama:

•At former President Bill Clinton’s “Early Voting” rally with Bennet Monday night, Bennet chided his opponent’s apparent flip-flops, dubbing him “Ken Buck 2.0″–while Clinton urged voters to remember that the election is a “choice,” and to oppose outside campaign funding from donors “too chicken to say who they are.”

•Chris Cillizza: Colorado race on the third tier–a “genuine tossup.”

•The National Rifle Association’s endorsement of Ken Buck.

House

New Scott Tipton ad–Rep. John Salazar “part of the Washington problem”:

•The National Republican Congressional Committee says Rep. Betsy Markey “folded”:

•New ad from Cory Gardner–attacking the wrong Markey?

•American Action Network to Rep. Ed Perlmutter–vote for repeal:

Governor

•GOP Chairman Dick Wadhams called Republican nominee Dan Maes “the worst candidate in Colorado history we’ve ever had for governor and one of the most polarizing,” and now says the possibility of Republicans losing major party status by drawing less than 10 percent on November 2 “probably will happen.”

•Maes called American Constitution Party opponent Tom Tancredo a “thug.” Wadhams praised Tancredo, despite rocky relationship in the past.

•Is the IRS watching Maes?

•All three gubernatorial candidates discuss their past financial difficulties.

•Hickenlooper, Denver’s mayor, upsets unions with pension reform proposal.

Late Campaign Stops Don’t Seem to Do Much

Growing up in New Jersey, we called nights like tonight – where there were expectations for hooliganism -- vandalism, breaking windows, and perhaps even arson, “Mischief Night.” In Detroit, they called it “Devil’s Night.” In 2020, Americans just call it “Friday.” On the menu today: wondering ...

About That ‘Uncoverable’ Biden Story

Journalists claim they can’t cover the New York Post’s Hunter Biden email scoop because the underlying evidence has yet to been verified. Also, they won’t look for any verifying evidence because there isn’t enough evidence. It’s quite the conundrum. Because other than the now-corroborated emails, ... Read More

Searching for a Sign

I’ve been waiting for almost six months to see a Biden-Harris yard sign in my neighborhood. Finally one -- just one -- appeared about two weeks ago. It is large and proud. The homeowners even equipped it with a spotlight, so that it is visible at night. I’m surprised, because liberal political yard signs ... Read More
