Democrats could lose Senate for a long time

Democrats curse their luck in 2014 - a midterm in a president's grim sixth year, with most of the competitive races taking place in states won easily by the last Republican presidential candidate. Low presidential approval ratings in states that Democrats need to win - President Obama is at around 38 percent in Iowa, a state he won in both 2008 and 2012 - are not leavening the mood.

Senate Action This Week on Historic Amendment to Get Money Out of Politics

The historic fight to wrest control of American politics from the super rich began this week in the U.S. Senate with a vote to allow debate of a Constitutional Amendment that seeks to invalidate recent Supreme Court rulings that flooded our political system with money from corporations and the 1 percent. "Money isn't speech and corporations aren't people," CWA President Larry Cohen said, "but over the past few years, working and middle class Americans have seen the billions of dollars spent by corporations and the wealthy result in special access, special tax breaks and special treatment.

Reaction from Colorado delegation to President Obama's ISIS speech

While agreeing that something needed to be done, the members of Colorado's Congressional delegation who reacted to President Barack Obama's plan to combat ISIS did not offer their blanket approval. Democratic Rep. Ed Perlmutter was perhaps the most gung-ho about the initiative, saying, "The President's response to the actions of the terrorists and murderers who call themselves the "Islamic State" was strong and direct."

George F. Will: Extremism in defense of re-election

Since Barry Goldwater, accepting the Republicans' 1964 presidential nomination, said "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice," Democrats have been decrying Republican "extremism." Actually, although there is abundant foolishness and unseemliness in American politics, real extremism -- measures or movements that menace the Constitution's architecture of ordered liberty -- is rare.

Obama punt on immigration could backfire on Udall, Colorado Democrats

By postponing action on immigration reform until after Election Day, President Barack Obama may have provided a boost to vulnerable Senate Democrats running in conservative states such as Arkansas and North Carolina. But the political punt, which spares some allies from dealing with the contentious issue this November, ultimately could backfire on another fellow Democrat: Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado, who faces Republican Cory Gardner in one of the nation's hardest-fought Senate races.

Players to watch: Campaign

A longtime Paul family acolyte, Benton is expected to run Rand Paul's likely 2016 presidential campaign - but first, he's got to deliver a win for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell . Benton's position with McConnell has helped sell the GOP leader to some disaffected conservatives.

Obama's Long Immigration Betrayal

Why does it matter that President Obama has decided to delay action on immigration until after the November elections? What difference does a couple of extra months make? Obama insists he still plans to unilaterally suspend deportations of many undocumented immigrants once campaign season is done. "I'm going to act because it's the right thing for the country," he said on Meet the Press on Sunday .

Four Senate Democrat Incumbents Look Really Vulnerable

If I wanted to help GOP Senate candidates and had limited resources, I would be pouring my efforts into Colorado, where Iowa , where Joni Ernst is very close, but not quite there, and a new poll puts her down by 5a Note that only Gardner is running against an incumbent. An incumbent senator in the mid-40s or lower is probably in deeper trouble, because the voters have known that senator for at least six years and the opinion is probably tougher to change.

Rocky Mountain Battle Dems throw $$ at Clinton ally in search of House win

In a midterm cycle where the best Democrats can hope for is Republicans not taking complete control of Congress, the party has found one race to lift its spirits: for a House seat in Colorado that could actually flip to blue in November. The race between incumbent GOP Rep. Mike Coffman and former Democratic state House speaker Andrew Romanoff is competitive in large part because the once-solidly Republican district was redrawn after the 2010 Census -- it's now an even split among Republicans, Democrats and unaffiliated voters.
