In one of the closest races in the country, President Obama gave a stark message to Colorado Dems.
President Obama held a conference call with Sen. Michael Bennet on Thursday night, urging thousands of his supporters to mobilize for the embattled Democratic incumbent in the final days so they "don't wake up Nov. 3 to a Sen. Ken Buck...."
"This election is about more than just the Colorado Senate seat, it's about the direction our country takes for years to come," the president said, according to a recording of the call provided to POLITICO. "So don't wake up Nov. 3 to a Sen. Ken Buck and say, 'Gosh, I wish I had knocked on one more door or made one more phone call.' This is the time where we've got to put in maximum effort. Nobody's going to work harder than Michael is, but we've all got to be there to help him."
That could be said for voters across the nation--we'll wake up to an ugly reality on Nov. 3 with inevitable losses. But if we wake up to a Senators Buck, Angle, Miller, Johnson . . . well, if you think that the Senate GOP caucus has been a problem under Mitch McConnell, just think about what it'll do under Jim DeMint if these whack-jobs get in.
GOTV, on the ground in your own neighborhoods or in neighboring districts or states, or in a virtual phone bank.
