Obama Inches Into Competitive Colorado Senate Race (Obama @ 38%)

DENVER (AP) – For the first time, President Barack Obama is inching into one of the highly competitive races that could determine whether Democrats maintain control of the Senate this fall. Obama’s trip to Colorado to raise money for Sen. Mark Udall underscores the political risks for vulnerable Democrats of being linked with the increasingly unpopular president.

Obama will headline a high-dollar fundraiser for Udall in Denver on Wednesday but the event is off-limits to news cameras. Udall’s office also says the senator will not attend an economic speech the president plans to deliver in Denver, ensuring that there will be no photos of the two men together.

Republicans quickly pounced on Udall’s plans, eager to link the incumbent to a president with sagging approval ratings, both nationally and in Colorado.

“Sen. Udall’s message to the president is clear: Help me rake in campaign cash behind closed doors, keep the media from capturing photos of us together, and avoid real Coloradans at all costs,” said Alex Siciliano, a spokesman for Rep. Cory Gardner, Udall’s opponent in the November election.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Colorado have made tying Udall to Obama a core part of their strategy. And a glimpse at the president’s poll numbers in the state make clear why. A recent Quinnipiac University Poll put Obama’s approval rating in Colorado at a measly 38 percent.

Raise money for me but do it invisibly. What a disgusting cast of characters.

And when Obama was in Denver, Udall was ‘conveniently’ out of town. LoL.

The game I grew up on. Near as I can tell, two things are found within 50 miles of either side of U.S. Hwy 81...and nowhere else on the globe.

Snooker tables and "red beer".

I used to hang out at the 10-9 Club here in Fresno. Pool, red beer and country music.

My milieu was along U.S. Hwy 81, from Fort Worth, TX to Wichita, KS. Grew up on snooker, red beer and country music.

Proving, I suppose, that the San Joaquin and the Chisholm Trail are pretty much the same place. And both largely populated by Okies...

Cory Gardner needs to play up this little factoid. Udall will let the Prez raise money for him, but won’t be seen with him in public.

Now there’s a thought! Has the clueless moron Udall had anything to say about the horde crossing the border?
