  • Colorado was the thirty-eighth state to join the union on August 1, 1876, nine years after Nebraska and thirteen years after North Dakota.
  • Population, as of 2009, is 5,024,748.
  • Senators are Michael F. Bennet (D) and Mark Udall (D).
  • Representatives are Diana DeGette (D), Jared Polis (D), John Salazar (D), Betsy Markey (D), Doug Lamborn (R), Mike Coffman (R), and Ed Perlmutter (D).
  • Colorado holds nine electoral votes. Historically, the state has voted red in all but four elections since World War II.
  • According to Rasmussen Reports, Republican candidate Dan Maes has only single-digit support in the gubernatorial race, but Democrat John Hickenlooper is nearly tied with Independent candidate Tom Tancredo.
  • Incumbent Democrat Michael Bennet and Republican challenger Ken Buck stand with even numbers. They will hold a nationally televised debate on Sunday as they race toward Tuesday’s finish line.
By this time next week, potentially, some of these House and Senate seat-holders will have been voted out. I ardently hope the list I have comprised of Senators and Representatives of various states over the past couple months requires much revising after Tuesday.

If current polls prove themselves even half worthy of validation, Barack Obama should be facing some nearly impenetrable obstacles for the next two years. If this conservative victory prevails, the actions of Obama’s first two years as president will be condemned and stand to be rectified. That is what disgruntled voters expect and hopefully Republicans will be able to deliver steadfast resolution. While victory could be sweet right now, if Republicans do not fulfill the new sense of “Hope” and “Change” that the majority of American’s may or may not want, depending on Tuesday’s results, it will only strengthen Barack Obama’s campaign in 2012.

Republicans need to assert themselves over the next two years with a determination that is equal to or greater than their desire was to be elected in the first place.

1,918.6 miles to go.
