I'm having a hard time believing that we are pulling out of Colorado. The state is GOP by nature. I'm not disputing the dollars spent data, I'm simply saying there is something else going on here.

I don't believe we're conceding Colorado.

I don't know if you live in Colorado, but I do. There has been a definitive change in the 7 years I've been hear. We have a dem governor, a dem-controlled state legislature, 1 dem US Senator, and 4 of our 7 US Reps are dem.
Denver is made up of half minorities, most of whom vote dem.

This is NOT a by-nature GOP state anymore. Colorado has been Californicated

El Paso County, where I live is the bastion of conservatism in the state, which is why the candidtaes have spent more time here than in Denver. They're all banking on Colorado Springs to swing the state, which means that even Colorado Springs is in play.

Last I heard, we were up 4 in CO in the internals. FWIW.

This may in fact be a sign that the lead has solidified, and that McCain is moving money to more needy areas.

Why do you cut back on spending? If you think 1) you can't win, or 2) you're going to win.

I'm not privy to RNC or McCain strategy. I only know what I see/hear/read/observe. The momentum in red states has been all toward the GOP recently. Palin just did three events in CO, McCain's going back tomorrow for two more (I think). You folks do the math.

Wanna hear another laugher? I just saw a Yahoo headline saying that Obama and McCain were neck and neck for the rural vote. I'll give those pesky, biased reporters credit. They don't give up, no matter how ridiculous it may sound.
