Buck Tries To Reclaim Momentum In CO Senate Race

Ken Buck has returned to his tea party roots to reclaim the momentum as he tries to unseat Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet.

After some televised missteps, Buck has resumed the sort of small campaign events where his folksy style first made him a tea party favorite. He defeated a better-funded Republican in the August primary and seemed to have Bennet on the ropes.

Recent polls show the contest's a nail-biter. Bennet and Democrats have succeeded in highlighting Buck's conservatism with a drumbeat of "too extreme" messages. Buck concedes he stumbled during televised debates with Bennet, joking that he can't keep his boot out of his mouth.

    You people who listen to and believe the commercials for anyone are too stupid to vote. Do your research and stop watching tv

    Buck's not getting my vote. Forcing a woman who was raped to deliver the rapists's child???? Or forcing an incest victim to give birth to the perpetrator's child??? You have GOT to be kidding me.

    Anyone who considers principles, looks at the record of the incumbent and puts TV political ads aside, will see which one is too extreme. You can't get any more extreme than Bennet. He is as extreme as Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Obama. Bennet has voted for every radical administration bill proposed.

    The continuous drone of Bennets attack ads shows a serious character flaw and thus not someone I want representing me. Does he not know you reap what you sow? If would just tell me what he stands for he might get my vote, but he doesnt. He attacks Buck left and right and many of the attacks are based on lies or misleading as numerous papers and fact watch have shown. Buck is the candidate for CO and to end one party rule.

    Buck IS way too extreme. The commercials just repeated what everybody already knew from listening to him talk. Glad he's going back to his tea party roots finally, but it's too late.
