Colorado’s Senate race is trending Republican, as the most recent poll, by Fox News, shows Cory Gardner leading Mark Udall by six points. Udall has run a lackluster campaign dominated by a tired, over-the-top “war on women” theme, and this morning the Denver Post, not known as a bastion of Republicanism, endorsed Gardner.
Still, the race is competitive on paper. So why has Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC just cancelled $289,000 worth of broadcast ads?

The pattern around the country is that the Democrats are retreating, pulling back from districts where they had hoped to unseat Republican incumbents and defending a dwindling universe of incumbent Democrats. Still, if the Democrats are giving up on the Colorado Senate race, things are looking worse for them than we thought.
