  1. I don’t know what the RMN is thinking.  We still only have less than half of the vote from Denver reported, and Ken is down by only 43,000 votes.  In the less than half of Denver that has reported, Ken is already up by 48,000.  Plus, there appears to still be a huge chunk of votes outstanding from Adams County. 

    I think it is still quite reasonable to assume that KG pulls it out.

  2. He’s not a drooling cretin.  I could live with him, I think.  Might have to!  Although Gigi has shown how the SOS office can tweak rules and regs for a party advantage, I think we are onto that type of thing and would stop MC from trying likewise. 

    1. I saw how he handled the St. Vrain school district financial mess and he made them clean up their act. I don’t think what he did was a plus for him politically but it sure was the right way for the state.

      I thought all along either would be very good.

        1. In his role as treasurer, Mike Coffman used state resources in the campaign against Amendment 23. He has proved himself to be dishonest and partisan. We’ll see – when Denver is counted we won’t have to deal with him…. 

  3. What is out other than Denver and a tiny part of Adams?

    If my math is right, if 1/2 of Denver is still out, and Gordon is down 43,000 or so votes, this is still a race.

    Are there large parts of Douglas that still haven’t come in?

    90% of the votes are in; Gordon trails by 43,000 votes.  If turnout ends up at 1.5 million statewide, that means there are roughly 150,000 votes left to be counted. If Gordon gets 65%  of that 150,000 then he gains 45,000 votes on Coffman and wins by 2000 votes.

    Likely?  No.

    Possible?  You tell me.

    1. and I don’t think Gordon’s numbers in Denver are strong enough to beat Coffman’s in Jeffco.

      BTW, I’m only saying this as I absolutely suck at predicting elections and no matter whom I pick invariably the other wins – so go Gordon!

    2. I just ran some back of the envelope numbers from the numbers on the RMN website, and if the trends stay the same the uncounted votes will probably put Gordon over the top.

      Looks like something around 746,647 Gordon, 735,554 Coffman to me if this holds up.  This doesn’t take into consideration any other counties which RMN is showing at 100% now.  If that’s not the case this will be even more interesting.

      I think calling this one is premature.
