DENVER (AP) – Republicans eyeing a U.S. House takeover have their eyes on Colorado, where three incumbent Democrats are fighting off well-funded Republican challengers.
Tuesday’s race could turn back many of the gains Democrats made over the past decade in Colorado.
Democratic Reps. Betsy Markey, John Salazar and Ed Perlmutter all were being targeted by the GOP.
Republicans need two of those seats to take a majority of Colorado’s congressional delegation. A sweep would turn Colorado’s House delegation from 5-2 Democratic to 5-2 Republican.
