PBS provided ongoing coverage of the midterm election, and Colorado was one of their featured states. Gwen Ifill used the senate race as a lead story just prior to the August 10 primary and revisited it in late October. The timing of the interview was auspices because the senate race had tightened according to published polls. Her questions covered the advertising, the money and the get-out-the-vote – all the key elements in the final decision, which was not called until early Wednesday morning.
