WATCH: Romanoff defends record on illegal immigration

Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Andrew Romanoff, who won a top spot on the primary ballot with 60.4 percent of the vote at the Democratic Party state assembly this weekend, told the Colorado Independent that his position on illegal immigration has been consistent stretching back to the time he was Colorado Speaker of the House. Romanoff has come under fire in his run against Sen. Michael Bennet for leading a special House session in 2006 that resulted in what has been called one of the toughest anti-illegal immigration laws in the country and a precursor to the flash-point SB1070 law passed last month in Arizona.

Report details Colorado incompetence in managing Homeland Security cash

A $20,000 computer server gone missing. A $1 million check left for months in a mailbox. A mobile security field station squatting unused in a Lake City parking lot. Those are just a few of the blunders the governor's Homeland Security office uncovered in Colorado as its auditors sought to track the way the state was spending federal Homeland Security funds in 2008 and 2009, according to a joint study published last week by the Center for Investigative Reporting and The Center for Public Integrity.
