Koch Brothers target another Democratic senator

Washington (CNN) - Americans for Prosperity is adding Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado to their list of Democratic senators facing tough re-elections this year that the conservative group is targeting.

The group, backed by the deep pockets of the billionaire industrialist brothers, David and Charles Koch, says it's going to spend just under $1 million starting Monday to run a TV commercial that criticizes Udall for his support of the health care law.

Poll: No Rocky Mountain high for Clinton or Christie

(CNN) – It was a crucial swing state that Barack Obama carried in both of his presidential election victories, but a new poll suggests that if Hillary Clinton's the Democratic nominee in 2016, she may have a challenge winning Colorado.

And a Quinnipiac University survey released Thursday also indicates that the George Washington Bridge controversy has hurt New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's standing with voters in the Centennial State.

Did the NSA overreach? Lawmakers spar over data-collection program

(CNN) – Members of Congress are split on whether to rein in the National Security Agency's surveillance activities after intelligence leaks revealed the extent of the government's data-collection program.

A review of NSA surveillance practices ordered by the White House recommended changes to the program including greater judicial oversight and more public transparency in the collection of metadata. And a U.S. district judge said that the mass collection of phone records was probably unconstitutional.

Udall calls for 'reopening' of Patriot Act

(CNN) – Sen. Mark Udall, who's long called for greater transparency in how the government collects data on Americans, said Sunday the law allowing that monitoring should be reopened for debate after new disclosures about the scope of the intelligence community's snooping.

"It concerns me particularly because Americans didn't know this. That's why I'm calling for a reopening of the Patriot Act, I'm calling for a wholesome debate across the country," Udall, a Colorado Democrat, said on CNN's "State of the Union."
