Turnout (particularly in Dem primary) was strong in Colorado
The other good part about hotly contested races? Voter enthusiasm.

The Secretary of State's Office says of the 1.5 million ballots were mailed out and more than half -- 600,000 -- are already turned in. That's almost 200,000 more people than voted in the 2008 Senate primary and there's still got a day to go.....

Many counties reported record numbers for a primary. In Adams County nearly 35,000 ballots have been turned in so far -- 6,000 more than the entire 2008 primary and 13,000 more than the 2006 primary.

This was the first year that Colorado counties had the option of conducting their primary with all mail-in balloting, and it appears to be a big hit. Hopefully Colorado Dems will be able to capitalize on this enthusiasm--which the most recent polling indicates is pretty evenly split--and carry it through November 2nd so that they can beat whichever Republican crazies end up on the general election ballot.

Hopefully this will continue and Dems will retain the Senate Seat in CO (new poll thru PPP gives Bennett a six-point lead) and gain the governorship just in time for redistricting).
