If Beauprez isn't going to be our gubernatorial nominee, I hope he changes his mind and runs for reelection, since his district could go either way in an open-seat situation (President Bush got 49% in 2000 and 48% in 2004 and Beauprez won by like 100 votes in 2002).
Why isn't Beauprez doing better? He's a solid conservative with good name ID and proven ability of winning votes from independents.
I haven't been following the CO Gov's race too closely, so I don't know what the deal is between Beauprez and Holtzman. Beauprez, as far as I know, is very much in this race to the finish. I have worries we will lose this race solely because of the disastrous situation with Owens. If we lose Beauprez's House seat, we'll also hold only a minority (!) of the House seats in CO, 4 'Rats to 3 GOP. That will be the first time we held fewer seats since 1975-1983.
