Colorado 's Fourth District: One of the TOP TEN Races in the Country

Today the Washington Post ranked Colorado 's Fourth Congressional District as one of the top ten seats in the country to switch parties in 2008.

Here's what The Washington Post had to say:

Colorado 's 4th District (Currently R): Every election we look at the strong Republican performance of this district and conclude that there is no way Rep. Marilyn Musgrave can lose the seat. And every election she barely manages to win. This time we won't be fooled. Democrats are heavily targeting this race and Musgrave has proven that she underperforms in this eastern Colorado seat. Angie Paccione, the Democrat who lost to Musgrave by less than 6,000 votes in 2006, is back for another race but faces a serious primary challenge from Betsy Markey, a former aide to Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Colo.) Salazar has already endorsed Markey, which could well give her a leg up in the primary. This race shouldn't be close given the district's demographics but it will be.

  1. Betsy Markey rocks!

  2. I know Betsy Markey very well and she has a wealth of experience in the district - having spent 2 years as the Regional Director to Senator Salazar and prior to that serving as chairwoman of the Larimer County Democrats. She is known by leaders across the district and is so well respected she has received endorsements of all the major Democratic politicians from very liberal to moderates in this region.

    She brings to the campaign a positive message which is also very thoughtful approach regarding the major issues facing Americans today: War in Iraq, healthcare for all citizens, economic growth and fiscal responsibility, as well as concerns for the development of renewable energy and independence from oil companies. Her website can been found at

    She will represent the 4th District of Colorado with careful consideration of the needs of the district, of Colorado, and of the United States.
