Campbell Not Running

Now this is probably jumping the gun, but Roll Call is reporting that Sen. Ben Campbell is not going to run for reelection in Colorado. While Democrats had a chance with a fresh face before, an open-seat race opens up all new possibilities for realistically winning that seat as well as putting the state in play for the Presidential. Rep. Mark Udall and others will probably consider entering the field currently occupied only by entrepreneur Rutt Birdges.
