Senate elections are less than two months away and yet Colorado residents are still having a hard time deciding between Michael Bennet and Ken Buck. According to a recent poll by CNN and Time, Ken Buck has only a five point lead on Michael Bennett (49%--44%). Clearly, Colorado is operating as a purple state. And with such a small disparity, the competitin is intensifying. The Huffington Post estimates that $1.7 million dollars has been spent on advertisements against Buck, and almost $1.9 million for ads against Bennet. Only time will tell if such astounding sums have been worth the investment.
