303-866-2921Finance, JudiciaryNovember 1: Kagan's big move is to throw his own money into the campaign pot: $39,000 to cover mail and canvassing. He's put about $20,000 into mail and $15,000 into door-to-door work with Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach. That's a huge investment, and he still has $35,000 plus left to Watson's $7000. Both candidates must figure they're going to win - Kagan because he kicked in $39,000 and Watson because he doesn't need more money; or Kagan and Watson know they're at the end of their rope - Kagan because he put $39,000 in to get over the finish line and Watson because he's tapped out. Watson can count on Republican enthusiasm and momentum. It will show up most in his Cherry Hills community. Kagan will count on GOTV through his own team and Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach. Each side knows exactly who's voted, and how those votes compare to their voter ID. Each candidate knows which voters have to get to the polls. Dems need this seat and have put lots of resources into Kagan. Watson has his own resources. This race will have much higher than the 62.4% turnout from 2010, which leaned 1.4% Dem. The spread favors Kagan slightly, and neither candidate will leave any vote unvoted. Favors Kagan ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ a-NeutralN/ADonorsHouseState

303-893-9500 November 1: Watson has gone all in. He's down to $7000. He put $19,000+ into mail and $10,000 into Custom Direct, which prints ballots for counties. He's the risk taker who's not going to leave anything on the table. He's finally slowed fundraising, bringing in only $6500 in the reporting period. Kagan has pitched in $39,000 of his own money to boost his campaign coffers. Like many other Dems, Kagan is putting dollars into canvassing and mail. Watson has the easier GOTV effort, but lots of Kagan signs have turned up between University Ave. and Broadway and in Englewood and Sheridan where many of the voters are less affluent than Watson's Cherry Hills neighborhoods. So even though Watson has the Republican GOTV advantage, and has had a money advantage all along, Kagan's visibility has increased and he has plenty of cash to finish this race out. To complicate matters, outsiders are putting in plenty of money via mailers, etc., into the race. Kagan's self funding may be a show of confidence (if he wins, he can fundraise himself back to solvency), a last ditch effort to keep himself affloat, or a combination. Watson is either tapped out or figures he has this race in the can. Right now, Kagan has the advantage with his canvassing effort getting out every single identified voter and the performance numbers leaning slightly his way.

303-866-3069 leg, 719-339-8265 candTransportationOctober 18: Barker spent $13,250 and has $28,434 left. The remainder leaves Barker competitive, but Exum has spent substantially more at the front end of the race. Barker laid down $7,829.49 on mailers to Advantage Marketing, put $1600 into a commercial using Aztec Media, and bought $3,402 from Comcast in commercial time. Normally, Barker wouldn't sweat the Colorado Springs market, but this district has really been cut to help the Democrat. The end game will count mostly on a GOTV effort, as only 51% voted in 2010. Given that Obama has a huge GOTV effort all over the state, and Romney can count on the local Republican party, the voting rate will likely be higher than in a non-presidential year. That usually helps Democrats. Exum has run up a $30,000 total dollar plus over Barker, but Barker has a Major Contribution form sitting on the Sec. of State site without naming the donor or the amount, so who knows.

This contrasts with Lee who's made the big bet on door-to-door canvassing. George will have her own free investment in canvassing because the GOP is by-passing the Exum-Barker race in south CO Spgs in favor of putting an attractive, youngish, social-issue ambiguous woman in place. This is a tough bet as the district leans Dem at 64.6% turnout. The GOP must have done a calculation that says that a higher turnout will assist their party.

VotesNovember 4: Lee continues his bets on mail and canvassing door-to-door. He's thrown $20,000 to the Mad Dogs and $12,000 to Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach. His bet is that door-to-door in a +7 Dem performance race will win. George is betting on tv and mail. Let's assume that the mail cancels each other out - Lee will be painted as a tax and spend liberal and George will be painted as a woman who won't reveal her positions on reproductive issues.

She has about $8000 left to his $42,000, but with the days passing by,the $42,000 becomes less and less powerful with voters. Peniston put another $6000 in with the Mad Dogs from Florida, the out-of-state mail house many Dems are using and that her opponent nailed her on. Mad Dog's mail can be sweet or nasty, and Peniston has probably sent out some of each. Peniston hasn't bought into Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach yet. She should probably spend her remaining dollars with them unless she has a really terrific GOTV plan in place. Her Westminster district has an 8+Dem registration advantage and a 7+voter performance advantage, which provides some comfort. The district has a 30% Hispanic population, one more place where this voter cohort becomes critical for Democrats. Peniston will not have the advantage of Pettersen in HD 28 with the very hot Senate race going on in her district to help with GOTV.

303-866-2843, 303-466-2884Education, Health and EnvironmentOctober 18: Peniston must be thanking her stars that Vande Krol hasn't spent his money down. She has about $8000 left to his $42,000, but with the days passing by,the $42,000 becomes less and less powerful with voters. Peniston put another $6000 in with the Mad Dogs from Florida, the out-of-state mail house many Dems are using and that her opponent nailed her on. Mad Dog's mail can be sweet or nasty, and Peniston has probably sent out some of each. Peniston hasn't bought into Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach yet. She should probably spend her remaining dollars with them unless she has a really terrific GOTV plan in place. Her Westminster district has an 8+Dem registration advantage and a 7+voter performance advantage, which provides some comfort. The district has a 30% Hispanic population, one more place where this voter cohort becomes critical for Democrats. Peniston will not have the advantage of Pettersen in HD 28 with the very hot Senate race going on in her district to help with GOTV. It looks like it will be Peniston and Obama doing the heavy lifting in this House district.

303-596-4978October 18: Vande Krol turned to Amazon to buy a scooter to take him from house to house campaigning. That's may be the best buy he makes as nothing impresses voters more than a door-to-door guy. However, he probably should have made that purchase in June to get his name out early and often. He's turned to Wizbang Solutions for his mail house, a local company that's developed a solid business over ten years in various marketing niches. It's hard to figure why he hasn't spent more of his money. He put in $5500 on mail, but he's going to need to do more than that to supplant an incumbent with a 7+ voter performance lead. He's still sitting on $42,000, but lots of voters have already sent their ballots in. His money has diminishing returns as each day goes by - that's the stress of early voting on campaigns. He's put together a good challenge, but it may be too late.

970-453-4779 November 4: Lots of people think Tracy has a great chance in this race. First, the Dems just put in $15,000 to help her over the finish line. Many individuals have contributed in these last couple of weeks. It looks like she has momentum and will be peaking at just the right time. Whether all of this hope and change will pay off or just get her really, really close is the question. Tracy has to overcome a 9+ vote performance number, but Baumgardner has done practically nothing since the primary. He put some money into mail and a consultant this period, and doesn't have much left to close the race out. Tracy has gathered $78,000 to Baumgardner's $61,000, most of which he spent early on the primary. It's appropriate that this race is taking place in Summit County, because Tracy does have a high mountain to climb, but right now, it's looking like she's going to reach the top by an inch before Baumgardner.

Put with Obama's, Pettersen's, and Parker's efforts, there's plenty of voter contact to get Kerr's voters out - about $12,500 to Rocky Mountain Voter Outreach plus thousands of calls by volunteers daily. He's also put $28,000 into mail to Summers' $15,000. But there's lots of outside mail hitting the district. These actions respond to Kerr's problems: it's flat out easier for Summers to get out his voters than it is for Kerr; and Kerr is facing his TABOR lawsuit "name in the game." Since Kerr's name is on the TABOR case title, that gives him a very high profile on the taxing issue. Lots of people like being able to vote on taxes, so the law suit's assertion that we live in a Republic in which legislators should make taxing decisions isn't very popular. Kerr has outraised Summers in dollars, and it's hard to figure out the reasoning behind Summer's billboard on Hampden that focuses on education, since Summers is against Jeffco School's 3A/B, but right now, Summers probably has the edge.
