A case of mistaken identity in Colorado

(CNN) – Freshman Democrat from Colorado, Rep. Betsy Markey has a message for her Republican opponent state Rep. Cory Gardner–there are two Markeys in Congress.

Markey's campaign is firing back at a recent ad released by Gardner's campaign accusing Markey of "voting for the most fiscally irresponsible budget in history." One problem- wrong Markey. Betsy Markey actually voted against the Obama administration's budget. The confusion stems from the fact that the other Markey in Congress, Rep. Ed Markey a Democrat from Massachusetts voted yes.
