  •  CO 02 & 07 (0+ / 0-)

    I also think you are somewhat optimistic in these two Colorado districts listing them as sure Democratic.  In the 2nd, yes Polis has a lot of money and he does have Boulder, but he took a big hit in redistricting.  More than half the district is new to him and a lot of it is not favorable territory for him.  In my view he is more a likely Democratic seat.

    As to CO-07, I think Perlmutter is a strong candidate and has done well in his old district.  However, he too has much new territory.  He is also going to be running against Joe Coors, Jr. which is not a small name to be running against, in the home of the world's largest brewery, Coors in Golden.  That said, this is at least lean Democratic and maybe likely, but not sure by any means.
