Only One Colorado Congressional Election Competitive
Washington gridlock is much a product of safe congressional seats. Colorado’s sixth congressional district was the only competitive race in 2012. The remaining six were won by the incumbent by 12 points or more. Although individual congresspersons may want to reach across the aisle, there is little local political incentive to compromise, given Colorado’s congressional election results.
