By  | 

One race the Democrats did win in Colorado is in State House District 18, but just barely.

It was a two-man race was between Democrat Michael Merrifield and Republican Dan Stuart.

With 100% of the precincts now reporting, each received 48% of the vote. Only 75 votes separated the two candidates. Libertarian candidate Keith Hamburger received 4% of the vote.

Merrifield said he's happy to provide some good news for his party. "Ecstacy, astonishment, real excitement. Just too intense really, really."
