  •  He got elected statewide (0+ / 0-)

    to multiple offices (Treas and SOS) in multiple previous cycles, including 2006.  His wife may or may not (more likely not) be AG after this cycle (she's the GOP nominee).

    Don't count him out altogether.

      Those are much less partisan offices, and he wasn't running against well-funded, reasonably popular Democrats in a presidential year. CO won't be at all competitive unless we lose the presidency that year, or Bennett commits a career-ending faux pas.

      •  Note that the scenario presupposes Coffman victory (1+ / 0-)

        in 2014 over Romanoff, in what both of us have claimed here is an election year we see as likely to break toward the Dems.  Both CO-06 and CO-state are D+1.  That presumption to me means presuming Coffman competitive, albeit not favored, in a 2016 challenge against a bland incumbent.  That isn't where I would have his odds in a neutral evaluation, I expect him to lose in 2014.

      •  You talking about the Sen race being competitive (1+ / 0-)

        I don't see CO-Sen being highly competitive in 2016, but CO-Pres certainly will.  Some polls were showing Hillary to be a little bit weaker in CO than Obama was, for whatever reason.
