Poll: Key Senate battle all tied up

(CNN) - A new poll in Colorado, a state that could determine if the Democrats keep control of the Senate in this year's midterm elections, indicates the race is deadlocked between the Democratic incumbent and his Republican challenger.

And a Quinnipiac University survey also suggests that GOP Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is the strongest of the potential 2016 presidential candidates in Colorado right now, edging out Democrat Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical 2016 showdown in the Rocky Mountain state.

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.
