House Dems ready to abandon Markey

In Blog, Notes by Mark Hillman

What goes around comes around, and today the New York Times reports great news for Republican Cory Gardner.

Just as Betsy Markey (D-Fort Collins) was swept into office in a Democrat landslide when House Republicans were forced to cut their spending to former Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave (R-Fort Morgan), it appears that now Congresswoman Markey is about to a casualty of a looming Republican landslide.

The Times reports that Colorado’s Fourth Congressional District may move beyond Democrats’ reach, in which case the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee may cut its losses by pulling its resources of Markey’s race in order to save other vulnerable but stronger Democrat seats.
