Association with Obama proving toxic at the polls.
In a recent debate, Colorado Democrat Mark Udall was asked which of Obama’s policies he would oppose if elected.
He couldn’t name one.
Here’s a video by the Washington Free Beacon:
Udall’s campaign has focused on the tired Democratic Party meme of the war on women, earning him the nickname “Mark Uterus.”
Nia-Malika Henderson of the Washington Post recently reported:
Mark Udall has been dubbed ‘Mark Uterus’ on the campaign trail. That’s a problem.
Colorado Democratic Sen. Mark Udall has talked about contraception and abortion more than just about any other 2014 candidate. Roughly half of his ads are about women’s issues. The focus has been so intense that Udall has been nicknamed “Mark Uterus,” with local reporter Lynn Bartels of the Denver Post joking that if the race were a movie, it would be set in a gynecologist’s office. In a debate between Udall and Rep. Cory Gardner last week, Bartels, who moderated, used the moniker to describe him.
Udall’s campaign has been so shallow that the editors of the Denver Post have endorsed his Republican challenger, Cory Gardner.
This is change you can believe in:
Cory Gardner for U.S. Senate
Congress is hardly functioning these days. It can’t pass legislation that is controversial and it often can’t even pass legislation on which there is broad agreement. Its reputation is abysmal, and even its members rarely dispute the popular indictment.
It needs fresh leadership, energy and ideas, and Cory Gardner can help provide them in the U.S. Senate.
In every position the Yuma Republican has held over the years — from the state legislature to U.S. House of Representatives — he has quickly become someone to be reckoned with and whose words carry weight. An analysis on ABC News’ website, for example, singled out Gardner a year ago — before he declared for the Senate — as one of the party’s “rising stars” who represented “a new generation of talent” and who had become a “go-to” member of leadership.
And this was about someone who wasn’t elected to Congress until 2010. Nor is Gardner a political time-server interested only in professional security. He is giving up a safe seat in the House to challenge a one-term Senate incumbent, Democrat Mark Udall, in what is typically an uphill effort.
It’s time for a change.
And it looks increasingly likely that will happen:

Update (WAJ): Well, this is embarrassing:
Cory Gardner campaign pushes out video featuring Mark Udall calling the Rep. "Senator" in debate. https://t.co/4E3vaW4zH5
