Fox 31 Calls Senate for Bennet

Fox 31 also calls the Senate race for the Democrat:

Democratic U.S. Senator Michael Bennet retained his seat by beating Republican Ken Buck in a neck-and-neck race. Bennet had an 8,000-vote lead Wednesday morning with 88 percent of the precincts reporting.

The locations with remaining votes, primarily Arapahoe and Boulder counties, are Democrat-friendly, and it was not going to be possible for Buck to catch up.

Bennet’s campaign was confident his lead would grow when those ballots were counted, so his team felt very good Wednesday morning about his chances of winning the race.

Buck’s lead, which had gone up and down all night, was at 9,000 votes around 2 a.m. Wednesday, after additional returns from several smaller rural counties. But Bennet took a lead of just a few thousand votes with 88 percent of the precincts reporting at 8:00 a.m.
