It is a story that doesn't seem to have made it into the major papers though we had heard about it elsewhere.
U.S. Senate candidate Mark Udall believes he has a shot of competing in Douglas County, an area often looked upon as the state's most secure Republican stronghold.Putting this down in a lighthearted way - What was it the judge said to Alferd Packer, Colorado's cannibal? Something to the effect of:
Udall, D-Colo., is scheduled to hold a fundraiser Feb. 2 in Highlands Ranch. Democrats feel they have made significant headway there in recent years. Party officials say Udall's appearance proves the county, particularly House District 43, is an area in which Democrats could win in an election.
"There were seven Democrats in Hinsdale County and you ate five of them."
We think that there are more than seven Democrats in Douglas County, but where are the Alferd Packers when you need them?
