Colorado's Senate race has been roiled by the last-minute entry of rising GOP star Rep. Cory Gardner, a move that increases pressure on both Democratic incumbent Mark Udall and his party as it struggles to maintain control of the Senate.

If the "tea party" is the story of 2010, then Marco Rubio's rise from anti-establishment challenger to senator-elect is the story of the insurgent movement itself.
The pivotal Senate race in Colorado is locked in a dead heat as Republican Ken Buck struggles to keep the message on taxes and spending, while Democrat Michael Bennet pounds his opponent on social issues.

President Obama's Democrats claim to see a silver lining in the Republicans' choice of political novices, sometimes mistake-prone, for critical Senate races.
Mr. Buck has acknowledged he was wrong - he belittled the government's case on a gun-shop violation to the defense - although his supporters argue that he was caught up in the political agenda of Mr. Strickland, a Democrat who left office to run for Senate in 2002.
"He made a mistake, but he was trying to stand up for the taxpayers and Second Amendment rights," said Buck spokesman Owen Loftus.
