Beauprez Makes List of Ten Worst Campaigns

The Washington Post has listed the campaign of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez as one of the ten worst in the entire country:

Rep. Bob Beauprez (R-Colo.): Beauprez’s poor campaign was all the more surprising for being so unexpected. The congressman was seen as a rising star within the Republican Party nationally following his back-to-back wins in the Democratic-leaning suburban Denver House district he currently represents. But he has run an uneven — at best — race for governor and trails former Denver district attorney Bill Ritter (D) badly in late polling. Beauprez was unable to match Ritter’s fundraising and made any number of costly errors. The latest? An FBI investigation into how Beauprez obtained information from a federal database that was used as a campaign hit against Ritter. Not good.
