Appointed Colorado Senator Tim Bennet survived a primary challenge last night, but he will not likely survive the November 2 show down with Ken Buck, the GOP Senate nominee.
I supported former Lt. Gov Jane Norton in the Buck-Norton primary race, but as Norton graciously noted in her concession speech last night, there is no doubt about who is the conservative in the race now and who is the Obama loyalist and reliable Harry Reid vote. The Obama-Bennet tie was pulled very tight in the past two weeks as the president rode in to save the struggling Bennet campaign.
The race starts as a dead heat, but it won’t be long before Buck establishes and keeps a lead. Bennet is a man of the left in a year when the west is pushing back against the Beltway in which Bennet became very comfortable very quickly.
Buck is underfunded but that can be changed quickly as he is a genuine Tea Party candidate that the national grass roots of the movement will rally to. You can contribute to Buck’s campaign via the online site here.
