Despite what can be seen as an upset, Ken Salazar says he's still the Democrats' man in the run for Capitol Hill.
The state Attorney General was edged out by a virtual dark horse candidate in Saturday's Democratic Convention in Pueblo.
Mike Miles received 5% of the votes to Salazar's 49% and will be the top name in the primary ballot.
Miles has been campaigning for 2 years while Salazar has been on the trail for 9 weeks.
They are both seeking the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Ben Nighthorse Campbell.
