Bennet Victory in Colorado Senate Primary Gives Boost to Obama
<snip>

"U.S. Senator Michael Bennet, who was backed by President Barack Obama, won his partys nomination in Colorado yesterday in what was a test of the White Houses influence among Democrats.

Bennet, 45, beat former Colorado House Speaker Andrew Romanoff, 43, who was endorsed by former President Bill Clinton. The split between the current U.S. chief executive and the past one helped spur nationwide interest in the primary contest.

Bennet will face Republican Ken Buck, 51, a favorite of Tea Party activists, in Novembers general election. Analysts rate the race a tossup. Buck, a county prosecutor, yesterday defeated a primary opponent supported by the Republican Partys national leadership.

Nominating contests also were held yesterday in Connecticut, Georgia and Minnesota."
