Colorado conservatives creamed in governor’s race, on Supreme Court judges and on ballot initiatives
With about 43% of the votes in, Colorado's conservatives are being creamed in some big races. They're losing their ballot initiatives. And they failed to fire any Supreme Court judges. It seems unlikely that the conservatives can win those races.
Democrat Governor-elect John Hickenlooper easily beat conservative Tom Tancredo.
Democrat U.S. Rep Ed Perlmutter easily beat Republican Ryan Frazier in CD 7.
Conservative extremists who promoted Amendments 60, 61 and 62 are losingbig time. Proposition 101 also is failing.
The Independence Institute's anti-ObamaCare Amendment 63 also looks like a big loser.
Conservatives are losing in their effort to fire the three state Supreme Court judges who are up for retention.
Conservatives won two important U.S. House seats from incumbent Democrats. Republican Cory Gardner beat freshman Democrat Betsy Markey in CD 4 and Republican Scott Tipton appears to be beating Democrat John Salazar in CD 3.
Conservatives still are hoping to pull out some statewide victories.
Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet appears to be beating Republican Ken Buck 48% to 47% with 43% of the votes counted, but Buck is gaining as outstate votes are counted. The votes from strong GOP counties apparently still aren't in.It's still not what happened in the state Attorney General, Treasurer and Secretary of State races.
And not all returns are in on the state legislative races where the GOP is hoping to win control of the General Assembly.
