Cory Gardner 44%, Betsy Markey 41%, undecided 14%
The Republican "wave" has turned into a ripple in Colorado's fourth Congressional district. GOP challenger, state Rep. Cory Gardner (R-Yuma), is leading freshman U.S. Rep. Betsy Markey (D-CD 4) by only 44% to 41% with 14% undecided. The race looks like a tossup despite the anti-Obama wave because Markey has had more money to spend on advertising than Gardner has. And the district clearly is nowhere as strongly conservative as it was a few years go. LINK: District by district: 12 freshman Democrats in danger, by Shane D'Aprile, Sean J.
