And consultant Sean Duffy, who once worked for former GOP Gov. Bill Owens, said the debate lacked "electricity."In a debate known mostly for its civility, the most memorable moment may have been Mark Udall's back-to-back flub at the end:
But Duffy praised Schaffer's even-keel performance, saying, "People watching this debate will see this is the Bob Schaffer who won a lot of respect when he was in office."
In previous debates, Duffy believes, Schaffer was "trying to score points too fast."
In his closing remarks, Udall thanked the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for hosting the debate. Uh, that's the group that's spending $2 million on attack ads against him.Whoops.
He realized his error and then thanked the "Colorado Chamber." It's the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
It's not terribly surprising that there has been low turnout at the last two debates.
