    On Friday, Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA), in an act of pure political desperation, has now labeled her own constituency racist and sexist. “I’ll be very, very honest with you,” Landrieu said. “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as leader.” The goal: drive out the black vote, the same way President Obama did in 2012. Landrieu then added that the South is “more of a conservative place” and said that women have a problem “presenting ourselves.” The goal: driving out...

    WASHINGTON – New Mexico's Senate race suddenly is on the radar screen, as new polls show the Republican candidate within single digits of incumbent Democratic Sen. Tom Udall. Most political observers had written off the contest as a slam dunk for Democrats. But a pair of new polls shows the race tightening in the final days. ADVERTISEMENT A new Vox Populi poll shows Udall up only 4 points over Republican Allen Weh. The poll puts Udall at 47 percent and Weh at 43 percent, with 11 percent of voters undecided. “The deteriorating national political environment for Democrats and President Obama...

    With strong support from men, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner, the Republican challenger in the Colorado U.S. Senate race, leads U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, the Democratic incumbent, 46 - 39 percent among likely voters, with 7 percent for independent candidate Steve Shogan, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Another 7 percent are undecided. This compares to a 46 - 41 percent likely voter lead for Gardner in an October 24 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. With Shogan out of the race, Gardner is up 49 - 41 percent.

I'm not kidding you. He's only one of the guys that suggested making birth control available over-the-counter without a prescription to blunt this silly War on Women thing.

But a new survey from the Albuquerque Journal suggests that the race may be tightening in its closing days.

    The “War on Women,” as a political message, has been relatively effective for Democratic candidates even in spite of its intellectual emptiness and its fabricated premises. But the attack on Republicans as hostile to women’s health issues have thus far been largely successful, in no small part due to a credulous and uncurious media which has repeated them uncritically. That has not been the case this cycle. Republicans deserve most of the credit for dismantling this baseless and cynical political attack; the most effective of which has been a stance adopted by candidates like Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis,...

    Republican to keep pushing Udall on anti-fracking comments Republican candidate for Senate Rep. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) said on Tuesday that Democratic incumbent Mark Udall is a “fanatic” for the environmental policies of leftist billionaire Tom Steyer. Gardner told the Washington Free Beacon that he would continue to press Udall on his comments that fracking “keeps us locked into the old system,” which the Democrat flatly denied during a debate on Monday. His comments were recorded at an event in April. “When it’s convenient to oppose hydraulic fracturing, Sen. Udall opposes hydraulic fracturing,” Gardner said. “When he’s before a group...

    Michelle Obama made yet another flub on the campaign trail Thursday when she apparently confused Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall with his Republican rival. Obama spoke in Denver Thursday as part of a campaign event for Udall, who is engaged in a heated battle with his Republican opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner. She touted Udall’s Senate record in her speech, and called him a “fifth-generation Coloradan.” “Mark understands what makes this state special,” she said. The only problem? Udall is not a fifth-generation Coloradan. In fact, he was born in Arizona and his father, former Rep. Mo Udall, served as a...

    First lady Michelle Obama on Thursday became the latest political celebrity to get involved in Colorado's heated Senate race. Obama rallied some 1,500 people in Denver to vote for Democratic Sen. Mark Udall as he faces a tight run for a second term. Republicans have targeted the seat as one of the six they need to win control of the Senate. Udall narrowly trails his Republican challenger, Rep. Cory Gardner, in recent polls. Democrats are counting on turning out their base voters, especially younger women, to close the gap. Michelle Obama told the crowd to remember 2008, when her husband...

The incumbent and his supporters insist they will shock the pundits on Election Day, even though Udall hasn’t had the lead in a single public poll in more than a month and is facing a rising GOP star in Rep. Cory Gardner. Two new surveys released Tuesday gave Gardner a narrow lead, underscoring Democratic fears that the race for the Senate majority could be lost in a state that voted for Barack Obama twice.

Now a new poll, taken over the last four days, shows Gardner leading by seven points. According to the USA Today/Suffolk University poll, Gardner is at 46 percent to Udall's 39 percent. A September poll from the same pollster had Gardner up by just one, 43-42. Both polls have a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent, meaning neither shows Gardner with what can...

Udall is similarly ahead 46/42 with women, 64/24 with Hispanics, and 59/22 with young voters. The problem for the Democrats is that they are down by significant margins with men-...

    Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall has talked about contraception and abortion more than just about any other 2014 candidate. Roughly half of his ads are about women's issues. The focus has been so intense that Udall has been nicknamed "Mark Uterus," with a local columnist joking that if the race were a movie, it would be set in a gynecologist's office. In a debate between Udall and Rep. Cory Gardner last week, moderator Lynn Bartels of the Denver Post used the moniker to describe him. For all of that focus — and the insistence from Democrats that Gardner's record on...

The RealClearPolitics average of polls in the race shows Gardner holding a lead of 1.3 percentage points. The outcome may determine control of the U.S. Senate, and the margin of victory could be less than the 11,000-vote margin by which Democratic senator Michael Bennet was reelected in Colorado in 2010. But there is a significant difference in this yearÂ’s Senate race. In 2013, a new Democratic state legislature rammed through a sweeping and highly controversial election law and...

Still, the race is competitive on paper. So why has Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC just cancelled $289,000 worth of broadcast ads?

    Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) has one strategy to ensure his reelection: Resurrect the morally and intellectually bankrupt “War on Women.” This effort has centered primary on promoting the fact that Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) once backed a personhood measure as a state-level lawmaker. He has since abandoned that position and embraced more politically savvy policies like those which would increase access to over-the-counter contraceptives. Even Politifact has been forced, reluctantly, to call out Udall’s ads which claim Gardner “championed” personhood measures in the Centennial State as “half true.”Nevertheless, Udall’s campaign is clinging desperately to this line of attack against...

    Suffolk University ^ | September 17, 2014
    Democratic incumbent Mark Udall and Republican challenger Cory Gardner are locked in a statistical dead heat in the Colorado race for U.S. Senate, according to the latest Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll. The poll of likely voters in the general election shows Gardner backed by 43 percent and Udall by 42 percent, a difference that is well within the poll’s 4.4 percent margin of error. Another 10 percent of likely voters remain undecided, and four independent and third-party candidates were in low single digits. The Colorado race for governor also is neck-and-neck, with 43 percent of respondents supporting Democratic incumbent John...

    Sen. Mark Udall’s campaign has turned into a national joke.  On CNN today, a panel of national reporters mercilessly mock Udall’s response statement to President Obama’s speech last night.  John King starts it off with more than a hint of can-you-believe-he-actually-said-this tone in his voice: John King: Listen to this statement last night after the President’s speech from Mark Udall…  “I will not give… a blank check to begin another ground war in Iraq.”  An interesting statement except the President has said repeatedly… he will not put boots on the ground. [the Peak’s emphasis] That’s right Colorado, Udall is so...

    In Colorado, embattled Democratic senator Mark Udall won’t debate Cory Gardner on any of the Denver television stations. Too busy, he says. ... At least he didn’t claim either of the executed American journalists would agree with him.

    Denver CBS 4 ^ | September 10, 2014
    DENVER (CBS4) – For the first time in CBS4 history an incumbent U.S. senator has declined to debate his opponent live on air. In fact, Sen. Mark Udall isn’t doing a debate on any of the four major network television stations in Denver. CBS4 Political Specialist Shaun Boyd said it’s disappointing to CBS4, but it’s also unfortunate for CBS4 viewers. “Live debates are the one opportunity voters have to see candidates go toe-to-toe without a media filter, see the clarity of their vision and courage of their conviction; how they think on their feet and respond under pressure,” Boyd said....

    Mark Udall, who yesterday had to apologize for his use of beheaded Americans as a political shield in his weekend debate with Republican opponent Rep. Cory Gardner, has been hit with an accusation of a campaign finance violation. What Senator Mark Udall did, which was caught on camera by Revealing Politics, is a rather blatant violation of the Federal Elections Commission rule which bans the practice of federal candidates soliciting non-federal funds. While a named guest at a fundraising event for State Representative Crisanta Duran, Chairwoman of Colorado’s powerful Joint Budget Committee and rumored contender for House Majority Leader, Udall...

    <p>Sen. Mark Udall on Monday apologized for saying that two reporters beheaded by militants in the Middle East would agree that the United States should not "be impulsive" in responding to their deaths.</p> <p>Udall, a Democrat, made the comments in an untelevised debate with challenger Rep. Cory Gardner on Saturday night in the western Colorado town of Grand Junction. Udall has been criticized by Republicans for saying the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which currently controls much of Iraq's heartland, is not an imminent threat to the United States. At the debate, he argued that the two American journalists whose beheadings it filmed and released would agree with him.</p>

    Mark Udall says he's "troubled" by Obama's quickness to act on IS (!!!?!!!?!!), and that the two journalists beheaded by IS terrorists would have wanted a "cautious" approach."I can tell you," Udall said, "Steve Sotloff and James Foley would tell us, don't be impulsive. Horrible and barbarous as those executions were, don't be impulsive, come up with a plan to knock ISIL back." Allah makes a point that didn't occur to me: Given that we know that Obama delayed the rescue mission that would have saved both Sotloff and Foley, until they were no longer present at the target site,...

    Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Udall’s (Colo.) wife called for a carbon tax while appearing in a new anti-oil video produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. “People are ready for conversation,” says Maggie Fox, Udall’s wife and former president of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project, in the Green World Rising video, entitled, “Carbon.” “They’re ready to understand that carbon pollution is causing this challenge and that there is a simple solution: put a price on carbon pollution,” she says. DiCaprio is releasing a series of environmentalist videos on climate change, the first focusing on gathering support for a cap and trade system. A...

    For the first time this entire election cycle The New York Times Senate forecast at The Upshot predicts Udall has a greater chance of losing reelection than winning (53%-47%). This is a huge deal, as The Upshot tries to go beyond just the polls and factor in other intangibles about a race, such as, incumbency, fundraising, a state’s past election history among others, who the liberals at the NYT want to win. All those factors in The Upshot model lean heavily Udall’s way. Yet, despite this inherent, built-in advantage, Udall can’t overcome one thing: the people of Colorado feel he...

    The Colorado Senate race is unrecognizable from the one described in a May, 2013, National Journal article entitled, “Colorado’s Forgotten Senate Race.” PPD’s election projection model has warranted two rating changes since the entrance of Rep. Cory Gardner in February, both of which clearly show this race slipping away from incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Udall. In February, after Ken Buck made the decision to drop out of the race to make way for Gardner, a far more electable rising star in the GOP, we changed our Colorado Senate race rating from “Likely Democrat” to “Leans Democrat.” Now, after adjusting the...
