    I often open carry, especially in the summer when the temperatures make concealed carry a bit more cumbersome.  I was open carrying at this Yuma, Arizona gas station when a man approached me. He asked if Arizona were an open carry state.  I said that it was, and went on to explain that most states were.  He said he was from Colorado, where open carry was forbidden in some cities.  Yes, I said, the Colorado Supreme Court had made a weird decision that Denver could ignore state law.  He said the city of Aurora also prohibited open carry in...

    Billionaire anti-fracking activist Tom Steyer has dramatically increased his political donations in four key legislative races in Colorado in an effort to push the state away from fossil fuels, according to federal and state campaign finance records. Steyer made three $200 personal contributions to Democrats in crucial state Senate races. Democratic senatorial candidates Rachel Zenzinger, Jenise May, and Daniel Kagan were the recipients of Steyer’s largesse. May and Kagan are running for open seats, while Zenzinger is trying to unseat an incumbent Republican. Big money donors like Steyer can contribute a maximum of $200 in Colorado to state House or...

    Darryl Glenn, a tea party favorite, on Tuesday secured the Republican nomination for Senate in Colorado, one of the only places where the GOP thought it had a real chance to pick up a seat in 2016. But as the El Paso County commissioner makes his first run for statewide office – a challenging feat for even the most seasoned and well-financed politician in a purple state like Colorado – it is not clear that the Republican establishment is willing to give him a hand against Democratic incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet. Senate Republican leaders instead appear to be focusing the...

    A plan to return Colorado to a presidential preference primary has cleared its first hurdle at the state Legislature. A House committee voted 5-4 Monday to set up a primary vote for 2020. Unaffiliated voters could choose to vote in a party's primary as long as they indicate a preference, which would then be scrubbed after the vote. That falls short of a truly open primary, in which voters could cast ballots in whichever party they choose, without indicating a party preference. Colorado has more unaffiliated voters than voters registered with either party. Legislative analysts have said a primary vote...

    While Donald Trump continues to lead in delegate count, this week has not been his in terms of momentum. The GOP frontrunner was handed a resounding defeat in Wisconsin, where rival Ted Cruz beat him 48.2% to 35.1%. Now all eyes have turned to New York, the next primary in the nominating contest, with 95 delegates at stake — where Trump currently enjoys a commanding 56% to 22% lead over Cruz in the latest poll. But even before the New York primary in a couple weeks, Trump may be precluded from reaching the required 1,237 delegates before the Republican National...

    Colorado has temporarily suspended taxes on marijuana after the US state brought in more tax revenue than anticipated. The tax will return to 25% on Thursday but state law requires an automatic suspension of any new taxes in the event of an accounting error. Pot retailers saw large crowds on the pot tax-free day. Colorado became the first state in the US to legalise cannabis, after voters approved the change in 2012. Tax collected on marijuana sales came to $70 million (Ł45m), more than the $40 million (Ł26m) the state predicted. Colorado also saw an increase in tax revenue from...

Mark Udall (D-Colo.) is trailing his Republican opponent, Rep. Cory Gardner, in most polls. A loss by Udall would make it exceedingly difficult for Democrats to retain control of the Senate.

Even though Latinos split heavily for their party in 2012, mounting evidence suggests Hispanics could sit the midterms out after immigration reform has fallen from the White House agenda. "There's no question it's going to affect Democrats in this midterm. There's no one to blame but Democrats themselves," said Arturo Carmona, executive director of Hispanic engagement group Presente Action. A Pew poll out Wednesday revealed Democrats suffered an eight-point drop in support from Hispanic voters nationwide since 2010, down...

    LITTLETON, Colo. — To many Republicans, the Democratic "war on women" campaign against GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner is an outrage. But for Gardner himself, it is also a test. How would Gardner react when incumbent Sen. Mark Udall and national Democrats accused him of scheming to deny women access to birth control? The accusation seemed ridiculous, but what if Colorado voters took it seriously? Gardner certainly took it seriously, and he reacted by taking two steps. First, he abandoned his earlier support for so-called personhood measures that Democrats charged would lead to bans on some forms of contraception. And...

    When the left-leaning Denver Post shocked Colorado and the political world by endorsing Republican challenger Cory Gardner over Democrat incumbent Mark Udall in Colorado’s close race for US Senate, national Democrats were punched as silly as a victim of the knockout game. “One of the worst endorsement decisions by any serious newspaper in my lifetime,” raged former Colorado Senator Gary Hart. “Naďve!

Liberals are enraged a liberal leaning paper endorsed a conservative challenger over a lackluster liberal incumbent. But expressing that would expose their...

    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,...

    Is it possible that pollsters are underestimating the size and composition of Colorado's electorate in the upcoming Nov. 4 -- given that the state now mails ballots to its voters? Democrats...certainly hope that's the case. And now they have data backing it up, according to a new poll....

    Marilyn Marks could not be more worried. She fears that Republican Rep. Cory Gardner could lose a U.S. Senate seat in the mail — literally. “He has a real chance of winning,” Marks told me. “But this ‘100 percent absentee ballot’ disaster is likely to undermine every GOP candidate in a tight race.” Some 3.6 million such ballots have reached active voters and even those who last voted in 2008. “I’m going to people’s houses where they’re getting seven ballots to a household,” Republican State Senator Ted Harvey told the Washington Times. “Their children when they were 18 registered to...

    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...

    PPP's newest Colorado poll finds very close races for both Governor and the Senate. Cory Gardner is up 46/43 on Mark Udall in the Senate race, while John Hickenlooper has a 45/44 advantage over Bob Beauprez in the Governor's race. Both Democrats are doing well with the groups Democrats tend to do well with in Colorado. Hickenlooper is up 49/39 with women, 60/28 with Hispanics, and 59/31 with young voters. 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-...

    Perhaps the most hard-fought Senate race this year will be ColoradoÂ’s showdown between Democratic senator Mark Udall and Republican congressman Cory Gardner. 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...
  • NPR, Fox News Polls: Republicans lead in Senate battleground states

    Consistent: The topline results — Republicans are ahead. Inconsistent: The margins. NPR measures Obama’s job approval at (41/56) in states with contested Senate races, and an abysmal (29/67) among independents. But on the generic Senate ballot, the GOP leads by just three, fueled by a 16-point advantage among those aforementioned independents: In case you’re curious, NPR’s partisan sample is a reasonable, if slightly generous, D+4. Fox News’ pollster included two more states in their survey, but excluded Alaska. Results: Unless I’m missing something glaringly obvious (Fox’s poll sample is D+0, in line with 2010), I can’t quite wrap my...

    In the story, it is clear that the dog that attacked was unsecured and in violation of the law.   The family had been gently warned that their dog might escape.  The  CCW carrier's fears were realized, and he had to use deadly force to save his own, legally restrained, dog.   The dog is referred to as a "lab" but it is clear that it is a mix of some kind.   It was an adopted dog, so its ancestry is not certain.  Most dogs are very territorial; it is not surprising that they will attack other dogs that they view...

    Castle Rock, Colorado sits on the urban corridor from Denver to Colorado Springs.  It is primarily a bedroom community to Denver that has had explosive growth in the last 30 years, form 3,921 in 1980 to 51,348 in 2012. In 2003 the Town Council gave the Town Manager, who is appointed by the Council, the authority to ban the open carry of firearms on town property.  In  2014, the Council voted to remove that authority.    The current Town Manager, Mark Stevens, had prohibited open carry on Town property.  What resulted were two initiatives; one to approve of the action...

    An armed woman in Denver chased two intruders from her home, only to have them drive off in her SUV.  From kdvr.com: About 2:30 a.m., two burglars broke into a woman’s home, then stole her blue Toyota Highlander, last seen going east on Exposition Avenue. She got in a gunfight with the intruders as they took the vehicle.  From cbslocal.com: The woman apparently got scared and fired at them while they were still outside. “Obviously she felt threatened so she took some measures,” said Sonny Jackson, Denver police spokesman. The suspects fired back, and one of the bullets ended...
