The race is heating up for Colorado’s U.S. Senate seat held by Cory Gardner, considered one of the nation’s most vulnerable Republican incumbents on the ballot next year.Including candidates who have launched campaigns and a handful facing pressure from party leaders to run, as many as a dozen Democrats are putting together campaigns to challenge Gardner’s bid for a second six-year term.Political consultants and potential candidates say it could be months before the Democratic field takes shape, while perhaps the most formidable candidate might not get in the race until later in the year.Democrats who have announced a bid or are said to be considering one include two members of Congress, a former state senator fresh off an unsuccessful run for governor, and two former speakers of the Colorado House.

Lisa Mascaro AP Congressional Correspondent Published 11:32 PM EST Nov 6, 2018 Washington — The Democrats picked up at least a dozen Republican-held House seats across almost all regions of the country as returns were still coming in Tuesday but fell short in some closely watched races as they fought to wrest control of the chamber from the GOP. The party needed a net gain of 23 seats to break the Republicans’ eight-year hold on the House and place a check on President Donald Trump. Democratic candidates flipped seats in several suburban districts outside of Washington, Philadelphia, Chicago and Denver that were considered prime targets for turnover because they were won by Hillary Clinton in 2016. And in Kansas, Democrat Sharice Davids beat a GOP incumbent to become the first Native American and gay woman elected to the House. But the Democrats’ push into Trump country remained uncertain. In Kentucky, one of the top Democratic recruits, retired Marine fighter … [Read more...] about Dems flip a string of GOP seats in U.S. House

Steve Peoples and Scott Bauer Associated Press Published 11:46 p.m. UTC Aug 14, 2018 Madison, Wis. – Democrats are fighting to beat back Republican gains across the Midwest as the 2018 primary season roars through Wisconsin and Minnesota, two states where President Donald Trump’s appeal among working-class voters threaten to upend decadeslong political trends this fall and beyond. Tuesday’s primary contests for governor, the U.S. Senate and the House will test the strength of Trump’s fiery coalition against the energy of the Democratic resistance. At the same time, accusations of domestic violence involving the Democratic National Committee’s second-in-command could undermine the blue wave in Minnesota, a state still healing from scandal. In all, four states will host primary elections Tuesday as the 2018 primary season nears its final chapter. All but 10 states will have picked their candidates for November’s general election by the time all … [Read more...] about Midwest Dems look to Tuesday’s races to upend GOP gains
