Fighting to win a seat in Congress out of Colorado's swingiest swing district, Andrew Romanoff's campaign released the second in a series of online attack ads directed towards incumbent Republican Mike Coffman this week.
In a district that's home to 20 percent Hispanic residents, yesterday's move underlines what will likely be the pivotal issue in the congressional race.
Newcomer Hank Eng is waging a long-shot, shoestring campaign against Secretary of State Mike Coffman, who emerged the winner in a four-way GOP primary for retiring Rep. Tom Tancredo's staunchly Republican 6th Congressional District seat. Facing those long odds, Eng will launch a cable ad Saturday morning with what looks like a $20,000 buy — roughly 10 percent what Coffman is spending over the same period, not counting the Republican's commercials on broadcast TV. The spot light-heartedly attempts to paint Coffman's troubled tenure as Secretary of State as a reason to consider the little-known Democrat.

In Colorado, the state with the longest ballot in the country, 215,000 new voters have signed up since January. The woman in charge of the state elections department, Holly Lowder, resigned just weeks ago, after her cozy personal relationship with the beneficiary of several state election-related contracts surfaced. Lowder's boss, Secretary of State Mike Coffman, is himself the target of longstanding ethics complaints and is overseeing an election that he is also running in — to replace retiring Congressman Tom Tancredo. And, oh yeah, Colorado could be the deciding state for the presidential election. Hold on tight. It could be a bumpy ride.
