Miklosi vs. Coffman: The Closest Seat in the Country

Colorado’s newly designed Sixth Congressional District is in nearly perfect mathematical balance and may become one of the country’s most competitive districts.

In the nation’s closest 2010 senate battle, the new sixth district gave statewide winner Michael Bennet 47.4 percent and Republican Ken Buck 47.35 percent (statewide:  Bennet 48%, Buck 46%).

President Obama won the district with 53 percent (statewide 54%) and Senator Mark Udall carved out 52 percent (statewide 53%).

If Joe Miklosi can match Congressman Mike Coffman’s financial resources, and he is helped by an aggressive Obama ground game in Arapahoe County, this should become a very close match.
