  • Democrats say state isn't blue yet (Colorado)

    Barack Obama carried Colorado on Tuesday with ease. So did Mark Udall, the Democratic candidate for a U.S. Senate seat being vacated by the retirement of a Republican. The state's senior senator, Ken Salazar, is a Democrat, as is Gov. Bill Ritter. A Democrat, Betsy Markey, ousted a Republican incumbent in the 4th Congressional District, giving Colorado's congressional delegation a lopsided 7-2 Democratic edge. Six years ago, Republicans were ahead by the same margin. So Colorado has changed from red to blue, right? Wrong, the state's leading Democrats say. "We're not red, we're not blue," Ritter told a morning-after news...

    Weeks before Barack Obama won the presidency, he met privately in Washington with his former Democratic rival, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York, and Latino political leaders who had fervently backed her bid. The cards were laid upon the table, according to one of the participants. The Hispanic leaders said they expected at least two Latinos to be named to an Obama Cabinet — meeting the standard set by President-elect Bill Clinton in 1992 — but preferred three. Of course, they also wanted sub-Cabinet-level posts. In return, Obama needed assurances that Hispanics — who had overwhelmingly voted for Clinton...

    Colorado, once a reliably red state, swung blue tonight as voters chose Democratic Sen. Barack Obama for president, Mark Udall for the state's open Senate seat and a host of Democrats for Congress. GOP Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave was unseated by Democratic challenger Betsy Markey after an intense campaign full of attack ads, topping off a landslide victory for Democrats. Celebrating at the downtown Sheraton Hotel in Denver, cheering Democrats grew louder and louder as election results rolled in. The crowd erupted into a frenzy that lasted for several minutes following CNN's pronouncement that Obama won the election. "Obama! Obama! Obama!"...

    (CNN) — In the waning hours of the presidential race, the toughest shot against Barack Obama may not have come from the Republican ticket, but from country music star Hank Williams, Jr. The country-rocker, a campaign trail fixture who has penned a special song for the GOP ticket called "McCain-Palin Tradition," suggested Monday Obama doesn't like the national anthem. “You know, I’m usually at Monday Night Football tonight, but Colorado, this is a lot more important tonight. Join me now in our national — you know, that song that, uh, Mr. Obama’s not real crazy about, we’re singing it right...

    Fox News Live | 11/1/08
    According to Fox, 264,000 more Dems than Repubs have early voted in Colorado and 447,000 more Dems than Repubs have early voted in Florida. This was followed by a report that Dem judges were extending the voting hours to 6AM to 9PM in key states so that "everyone would have achance to do early voting." Without being decried a "racist," every_single_peron shown in early voting was African-American. The icing on the cake was a panel of "jorunalists" agreeing that, if the early/eastern states show a big Obama lead on 4 Nov, then it would be "negligent" not to announce that...

Voters on long lines Friday that snaked through the lobby of Centennial Hall and past storefronts in The Citadel mall and Chapel Hills Mall praised election workers for how smoothly it ran despite waits of up to three hours to cast a ballot. The large numbers who voted early were no guarantee there...

    Big turnout meant big lines on the last day of early voting in Colorado. Thousands of people lined up at the three voting locations in Colorado Springs. Wait times exceeded 3 hours. "I'm shocked," said Lisa Schmick as she joined the line at Centennial Hall where the line stretched out the door. "I thought everybody voted on the 4th. I thought ...'we're going to beat the lines coming early'". The line there was so long some got frustrated and just gave up. "It's pretty discouraging," said Louis Spicciati, who decided to leave and come back on November 4th. "You've got...

    Yesterday Sen. John McCain boosted his TV advertising units in seven key swing states — Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, closing the gap between his advertising and Sen. Barack Obama’s. On Sunday, Oct. 26, McCain ran just 331 TV ad units in those seven states — 308% fewer than the 1,350 ad units Obama ran that day. But on Monday, Obama’s lead in these key battleground states shrank to 113% — or a margin of 1,528 ad units, after McCain’s campaign increased the number of TV ad units it ran in those states by 308%, to 1,353...

    The NRA is going up in 10 battleground states with an featuring a tough-talking Chuck Norris touting the Second Amendment and warning against those unnamed politicians who have not supported gun rights. "He’s an American badass," said Chris Cox, the NRA's chief lobbyist, of Norris. Cox wouldn't say how much they were spending on the ad, but that it would be on broadcast and cable, cycled into a seven-figure buy they have up now. They'll air the spot in Colorado, Nevada, Missouri, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The NRA has spent millions going after Barack Obama...

"When I think of it, it brings to mind the prophecies that the Bible tells us about," said Lopez, sitting in the shade outside Focus on the Family's headquarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado. "On the one hand, it is exciting for us as conservatives because we can actually see what God prophesied coming about;...

    DENVER (Map, News) - Some Colorado Democrats are starting to sweat after the state released numbers showing that mail ballots and early voting in key counties are not what they expected. The latest figures from the secretary of state's office, compiled before Democrat Barack Obama's Sunday rallies in Colorado, showed that 22 percent of Democratic voters in Denver who received mail ballots have sent them back. In contrast, 26 percent of Republicans who received mail ballots have returned them. In Adams County, a quarter of registered voters from both parties returned their ballots, and in Pueblo, 20 percent did. Mike...
