Trump and Sanders Affect Colorado’s Congressional Races

Regardless if they get their respective party’s nomination, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have already affected Colorado’s congressional elections.
  • The Democratic super delegate controversy helped get Diana DeGette her first primary in 20 years.
  • Gail Schwartz was strongly encouraged to run against well-positioned Republican incumbent Scott Tipton because Washington operatives believe Donald Trump (or Ted Cruz) could produce a Democratic tidal wave.
  • Congressman Ken Buck helped engineer the Ted Cruz sweep of Colorado Convention delegates, but the group was challenged in Cleveland due to a Trump protest.
  • Morgan Carroll’s fundraising is surging. Her tough race against incumbent Republican Mike Coffman now appears more competitive due to the Republicans’ bitter fight and weak prospects for president. Democratic perennial speaker-in-waiting Nancy Pelosi has targeted this seat for years.

I really liked an article you wrote.

Would you be OK if I shared one of your articles with the WriterBeat.com community? I can provide more information about Writer Beat or answer any question, but better than anything I can say in words, please take a look at the site.

If yes, just give me an "OK": and I'll handle the rest (there is no fee).
