There’s a close Senate race in Colorado, pitting Republican Bob Schaffer against Democrat Mark Udall.
Udall, a classic Boulder liberal, had tried to impress Rocky Mountain voters with a pledge to keep Congress in session until it acted on an energy bill.
Yesterday Udall missed the vote on recess, and Congress went home.
That’s going to leave a mark on Mark. Colorado is a common sense state, and talking large and acting small doesn’t sit well with voters.
