CLW-endorsed, Betsy Markey (D) released a poll showing her leading Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R) in Colorado, 47-38%. This poll was paid for by the Markey campaign, so take it with a grain of salt, but it is third poll in a row showing Markey with a lead several points beyond the poll’s margin of error (including one independent poll).
Musgrave has since responded with negative ads claiming that Markey scored favorable contracts for her old company – still half owned by her husband – when she was an aide to Senator Ken Salazar (D-CO). Markey is calling the ads misleading and false. Looks like this race is going to get ugly.
