2012: Going to Colorado

The AP’s Beaumont goes to Colorado and says it’s all about suburban women. “If President Barack Obama wins this swing-voting state, and a second term as president, voters like Paula Burky will probably be the reason,” he writes. "‘He understands women,’ said Burky, a Westminster resident who last month decided to vote for Obama. Both the Democratic president and his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, see women -- specifically suburbanites from their 30s to their 50s -- as critical to victory in Colorado as well as in other hard-fought places like Virginia and Nevada where polls also show close contests. That means this group of voters may also hold the key to winning the White House.”

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg endorsed Scott Brown because of his “opposition to the National Right-To-Carry Reciprocity Act, which would allow gun owners to carry concealed weapons across state lines,” the Boston Globe reports. Bloomberg “will hold an August fund-raiser for Brown at his Upper East Side townhouse.”
