Colorado Senator Backs Abortion Access in Ad, Doesn't Automatically Lose to Republican

In a new campaign ad, incumbent Colorado senator Mark Udall uses the A-word - abortion - not once but twice, while condemning his opponent for his anti-reproductive-rights and anti-birth-control stance. Remember the early aughts when that was a death knell? Not so much anymore.

New Rove ad on Cory Gardner's contraception problem: Women aren't 'single-issue voters'

Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS is out with a new ad defending GOP Rep. Cory Gardner from criticism of his constant flailing on choice, personhood, and contraception, but instead of directly defending Gardner, the ad dismisses women who care about his views as "single-issue voters" and instead attacks Sen. Mark Udall for supporting President Obama. Here's the transcript: Whoever wrote the script clearly intended to attack Udall, but saying that women who care about whether a candidate has a 19th century view of reproductive freedom are "single-issue voters" makes the ad an attack on them.

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."

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.
