DENVER (AP) - Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet was locked in a close contest with Republican Ken Buck Tuesday, with supporters for both candidates hoping to eke out a narrow win.

With 71 percent of the projected vote counted Tuesday, Buck led Bennet by less than 1 percentage point.

Bennet is seeking his first full term in the Senate after being appointed to the seat last year. Bennet filled the term of former Democratic Sen. Ken Salazar, who became Interior Secretary.

Buck is a northern Colorado prosecutor who courted Tea Party groups.
