So what's democratic U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar going to do with the $400,000 he reportedly pocketed at his first fund raising event of the 2010 re-election campaign to add to the $1.8 million bucks already in the bank? Buy some voter love if a tepid new DailyKos/Research 2000 poll matchup against ex-Rep. Tom Tancredo and Jon Elway is any indicator. The survey shows Salazar up by double digits in both cases but still hovering dangerously close to the magic 50 percent of 'aye' votes for an incumbent.

Democrat Mark Udall leads Republican Bob Schaffer 51 percent to 38 percent in the race for Colorado's open Senate seat, amassing winning margins among both sexes and all ages in a Rocky Mountain News-CBS4 poll released Sunday night.

Former Congressman Bob Schaffer, the son of public school educators, has run for state or federal office almost continuously since 1989. Congressman Mark Udall, the son of a congressman, spent his 20s climbing the world’s highest peaks and working for Colorado Outward Bound before entering politics in 1996.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), citing Democrat Mark Udall's "commanding position to win this race," plans to pull its spending in the Colorado Senate contest and focus on more competitive races that could secure a filibuster-proof majority, The Denver Post reported Wednesday afternoon.
