Well, you can tell that we are entering summer in an off year.
Things are pretty slow here at MHD. But we are starting work on next years elections already.
As far as Colorado is concerned, this year should be considered a real high point for Centennial State Democrats. The Democrats control both houses of the State Legislature, both US Senate Seats, five of seven US House Seats and most of the State Wide Offices. The conventional wisdom here is that this year is a high water mark for the Democrats. But can the Republicans quit their circular firing squad?
We are going to say it here first, Senator Bennet is one of the most endangered Democrats in the US Senate. Realistically, the only member of the US House that the GOP has a chance of knocking out is Rep. Markey (CD-4).
Both of these races will make it to the first tier on national lists for endangered Democrats.
