Bennett 48%, Buck 47% (Buck proving to be the only Repub. in CO who could possibly lose this race)
CNN.com ^ | 11-3-10 | CNN

Posted on 11/03/2010 6:11:03 AM PDT by TitansAFC

88% reporting, Buck down 7000 votes.

Looks like Hinsdale and Chafee counties aren't counted? Could use CO Freeper update.....

Tancredo losing by double-digits now. Looks like CO is officially blue for good.

Ken Buck was said to be the only GOP candidate who could lose this race, which would have been a GOP blowout with Norton on the ticket. Looks like that prediction was prophetic.

Maybe he'll blame those stupid Tea Partiers and Sarah Palin and those retarded Birthers........again........

Unreal how back some of these candidates have proven to be, like Ken Buck.

The polls were looking bad for him (at least most of them) in the final days.

Of course, Freepers on those polls said don’t worry, CO voters will come out for him.

Goes to show if you run a shitty campaign, don’t expect to win.

He won’t make up the difference. Bennett reelected.

Frazier lost against Perlmutter. So every major candidate I voted for lost except John Suthers for CO attorney general. Haven’t checked the other races. CO is officially the land of the stupid.

As for how bad some of the candidates are.....that’s the downside of the tea party putting in people that haven’t been in politics before. They don’t know how to campaign.

I sure as hell wouldn’t know how to get elected to the Senate on the first try.

Colorado, Arizona, and the Pacific Northwest are experiencing on the West Coast what various southern states are experiencing on the East Coast. Leftists destroy whatever state they are in (NY, NJ, CT, CA) and then flee to nice conservative states because of better taxes, nicer people, more jobs, and so on and then proceed to try to turn those states into the leftist hell-hole that they left because they are too stupid to connect their politics with what they do to a state. I liken them to a swarm of locusts that eats a field bare and then moves on to a new field to destroy.

Buck is a bit too honest for his own good, but he was a strong candidate.

The Colorado Democratic Party (& the radical billionaires that control it - and the complicit 'impartial' media that echoes their charges) just beat the Colorado Republican Party -- again.

Norton would have cruised. Maybe , Lowden in Nevada.Maybe. Harry’s SEIU/Harrahs machine may have cheated anyone.
It seems that the Tea Party is good at energizing the base, but if the base is small it doesn’t help. I suppose it is good in Red States and helped Paul, Haley, but a moderate rep like Castle would have won.

Let me be the first to say, I’m not falling for this again.

I am not going to back a 95% Conservative who acts like a lunatic and is polling poorly against a 90% Conservative who is polling 20% ahead and has an electable demeanor. No more - not after Angle and Buck. I am getting behind a Buckley Conservative early next time, and fighting like hell for them (most electable who can win).

Miller is different because AK was going GOP no matter what. I have no problem flanking Lindsey Graham and others in Red States where the GOP candidate will win anyway.

Buck might bet he worst candidate I’ve ever seen - EVER! Six more years of Bennett because we’re supposed to support anyone with a big mouth who claims to be at all more Conservative than the other candidates. The idea of Buck or Tancredo running for office again needs to be immediately met with the tossing of fruit and name-calling at whoever says it.

We had no business losing either of these two Senate races, NO BUSINESS! To hell with losing winnable races because 90% Conservative isn’t good enough. I’m done with this crap.

Yep...Every election year its the same old same old about the polls..."their rigged...their this...their that..."

Well...how did Senators Buck...COD...and Angle do? Oh...so the polls were right.

Buck is toast. A lot of the precincts still yet to report are in boulder county...the dim will only add to his lead.

Oh...and so much for the polls showing Tancredo in a dead heat...and Barney Frank's job threatened.

Come on people...a little dose of reality every once in a while is a good thing.

“I don’t care what anyone says.It was a dissappointing night did not meet expectations for conservatives.”

In Nevada YES (though the results are fishy)
In Alaska YES (but the blame is on Murk not the conservatives)
In Delaware NO ( we ousted a RINO)
In Mass YES (All the Dems were re-elected)
In many other states NO (conservatives had big gains)

The sting comes from the fact that many of the marque media races were defeats.

Never give up. Time to reload and continue pounding Obama and the Libs

Could you please give examples where Ken Buck is a lunatic?

I supported Norton in the primary, but c'mon. Buck was a strong, confident, appealing candidate, and the worst that can be said about him is that he answers questions honestly instead of repeating talking points. Refreshing but electorally dangerous.

I am not a fan of RINO’s , but in states like Pa where Toomey won, or Kentucky where paul won or Rubio’s Florida, we don’t need Rinos.
In blue states Castles are the best we can get and certainly much better than Coons. I agree with bill bucklys rule.

Oh My Lord, the Drama!!!!!
The Tea Party CAME FROM NO WHERE, TWENTY MONTHS AGO!!!!
They Brought along citizens who would run, who were not groomed since Jr. High to be a lifetime member of Congress. These races are CLOSE! CLOSE!!!!!
It’s a dirty business, politics, there is so much corruption on the left that they steal elections from SEASONED republicans. AND STILL THESE RACES ARE CLOSE.
If we’d quit being so pesimistic and sit back and see what the Tea Party has already accomplished I think that we can really see that it’s actually miraculous.

I agree. Buck’s poll numbers withered under the constant Dem attacks and he gave them plenty of ammunition with numerous self-inflicted gaffes. The Dems also got a big boost out of the governor’s race, where the GOP was split and the Dem candidate won easily. The GOP performed well in the House races in winning back two seats, although many had hoped Perlmutter would also lose.

If Bennet does win a squeaker, I’ll be disappointed but not surprised. Both parties had contested primaries and this could have went either way by the narrowest of margins.

You're absolutely right. I too was thinking I'd stick here for the rest of my career and maybe retire here. Not now, not if my neighbors keep pushing idiotic policies that are going to ruin Colorado as a place to live. My company has facilities in Texas, maybe I'll just take my six figure salary and tax base and move...

We lost (it appears) WA, NV, CA, CO, WV, DE, and CT
and almost lost IL and PA

Murkowski looks like a winner in AK.

That means we lost almost every close race, and for a second straight election, we actually underperformed polling. And this is in a tidal wave GOP year.

Yes, it was disappointing. We had a shot at 10-12 Senate seats, and are coming away with six - this despite the fact that candidates like Reid and Bennett were toast, I mean absolutely finished. Most of those fringe House seats will trend back to Democrat after one election.

No more. I am done with the 100% purity tests.

Same with WA State. I don’t think it was ever a red, red state like Texas; but, the Seattle area and I-5 corridor, has become bluer over the years due to all of the infiltration by Kalifornians. Eastern WA (a lot for agriculture) is still primarily red.

I think the lesson everyone should learn is NEVER give the Dummies a target.

With the help of the national msm and their little slimes in states they intentionally picked out candidates with real or preceived weaknesses and blew them up to National preportions.

Now that the TPN and Indies have been throught the process.

LEARN the lessons.

Nothing like blaming the messenger.

NEXT tardet to pound the airways and internet with the irrelevence of the TPM. NO ONE CAN ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.

downside of the tea party putting in people that haven’t been in politics before

Two points...why is this "experience" thing only meaningful for non-independently wealthy Republicans? Secondly, wasn't part of the point of the tea party movement to remove the entrenched politicians who've screwed up our nation's finances? It's nice to believe that we have a large pool of overlooked but responsible politicians who can be raised to the Senate but we have to take what can be gotten from the clay that is the non-political class. I do understand your point of not having a professional campaign staff but at the same time, it's chilling to look at the viciousness of entrenched power. Hopeful some people are looking.

Yes! In 1930, the incumbent party (Rs) lost 52 House seats and 8 Senate seats. Both chambers were effectively tied for the next 2 years. This is the same, or better. Nothing -- nothing really awful -- can pass through Congress for at least 2 years.

When Ken Buck was up 4-5% in the polls, the RNC/NRSC pulled his advertising budget (big $$$) to put it into California against the Boxer and Brown races.

That was a stupid mistake.
What dolt decided to sink the money into California?

The DNC then came in with a massive ad campaign for Bennett and the GOP never replenished the money or provided much in the way of any support. Even when the polls (all the polls) showing the lead slipping away.

Win or lose, the fact that it was close sits squarely on the shoulders of the GOP leadership (especially the Nat’l Republican Senatorial Committee).

You don't have to look too far or read very much to see who screwed this one up. Again.

Without grass roots support he would have lost double digits.

I regret my support of Buck in the primary. Norton turned me off by her attack ads against Ken Buck. I think that she would have won either as senator or governor. It is a sad day for Colorado conservatives.

It didn’t help that the tea party pushed a candidate for governor who turned out to be a total loser, and then abandoned him for a 3rd-party Tancredo.

It’s unfortunate there were no good governor candidates in the republican primary, but a strong governor candidate would have certainly helped Buck.

But Buck, Angle, and frankly Joe Miller were all pretty bad candidates, who won primaries and then let the race slip away from them (As was O’Donnell).

The lesson isn’t really to pick lesser conservatives, but to run BETTER CANDIDATES who are conservatives.

Still, there will be a lot of seats we look back at that were left on the table. My guess is my own house race would have gone Republican if we had picked the 90% guy instead of the 100% guy.

But I’m not ready to say that is

I agree but that means no to Palin and possibly DeMint. Either people stop calling everyone that isn’t 100% conservative a RINO or we will continue this 3 party death spiral. More emphasis needs to be placed on primaries and voting for the most electable conservative. The tea party is a force to hold conservative accountable and I dont mind a Mike Castle getting kicked to the curb, we just have to be more carefull in hindsight of CO & NV.

Yes, and everyone who can’t count is thumping their chests about winning the House and all of those two-year terms. You know, those two-year terms that will trend back to the Democrats in many cases because it’s no longer a wave election.

Meanwhile, we lost winnable SIX-YEAR Senate seat after winnable SIX-YEAR Senate seat.

I’m done. I don’t care if I’m the only person FR who changes, but I’m done with the 100% purity crap. No more. I’m going with the Buckley rule, period. If that means I have to actively work against a Ken Buck in the primary, so be it.

Interesting. Purity over victory.

Of course, Coons won, and unlike Castle he'll never vote with the R's under any circumstances.

So you didn't actually gain anything.

Thanks. That makes me feel a little better. We could have had the governor’s race this cycle:

a. if the Repubs had put forth a decent candidate. Could Josh Penry have taken it had taken it had he stayed in the race?

b. if Maes had done the decent thing in August or whenever.

c. if Maes supporters had pulled their heads out.
