While many conservative groups focus on their traditional messages, left-leaning super PACs and nonprofits are working together and tailoring their ads to the themes Democrats are campaigning on, allowing them to reinforce the candidates' messages - and the party's overall arguments about the election.

Colorado: an important swing state in 2014

The 2014 mid-term election is shaping up to be a nail biter. After making few gains in 2012, Republicans are set to take over the Senate, keep control of the House, and perhaps make gains in individual state governments, such as Colorado, which is controlled by Democrats.

Activists blast spy bill as 'ripe for abuse'

Liberal groups, transparency advocates and the whistleblower behind the Pentagon Papers are coming out strongly against a Senate bill to reform the National Security Agency , arguing the reforms it contains are inadequate. Activists and whistleblowers told members of Congress in a letter on Monday that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy's USA Freedom Act "contains ambiguities that are ripe for abuse" and "fails to protect against future privacy invasions of innocent people."

Mark Udall Cory Gardner We don't see either Udall or Gov. John Hickelooper losing in November, but for the first time, we have Udall as a slightly bigger favorite in his respective race. Gardner's campaign has been an absolute mess , and national politicos and reporters are coalescing around the idea that Udall is in the driver's seat now.

Politico Echoes Planned Parenthood Attack Ads on 'Strident' ...

James Hohmann of Politico reported on "a nearly million-dollar" ad buy by Planned Parenthood to boost Democratic senators Kay Hagan and Mark Udall, spending a half-million dollars in the Raleigh TV market for Hagan and $400,000 in Denver for Udall. Like your average blinkered liberal journalist, Hohmann paints the pro-life Republicans as "strident" while Planned Parenthood is simply a "women's group."

New Poll Puts Brownback On Top

Like most midterms, the 2014 congressional races are widely seen as a referendum on the president, even though his name doesn't actually appear on any congressional ballots. With all the focus on the Senate it's sometimes easy to forget that at the state level, most of America is governed by a Republican administration: the GOP holds 29 of 50 governor seats, covering more than half the population -- so with 22 of them up, this November can also be seen as something of a referendum on Republican executives, too.

Sen. Mark Udall visits flooded Colorado towns

Fighting for his political life, Colorado U.S. Sen. Mark Udall marked the one-year anniversary of last year's devastating floods by visiting two battered villages northwest of Denver while his re-election campaign continued to attack his Republican challenger for backing the government shutdown after the deluge. Udall's increasing emphasis on the flood in his re-election campaign has incensed Republicans, who note that the senator's challenger, Rep. Cory Gardner, represents an area that was hard hit by the disaster and worked closely with Udall and other Colorado representatives in Washington to secure emergency federal aid.

Time for GOP Concern About Colorado, Iowa, and North Carolina

It is not quite time for Republicans to panic about the Senate races in Colorado, Iowa, and North Carolina, but it's worth ratcheting up the concern another notch. In Colorado, the good news is that incumbent Democrat Mark Udall remains below 50. But Cory Gardner can't seem to get over the hill and take the lead: In North Carolina, the concerns about Thom Tillis are triggered mostly by one poll showing a surprising six-point lead for incumbent Democrat Kay Hagan.
