CO - Paccione within Striking Distance

Things have gotten so bad for Republicans that an African American, 2 term State Representative, who hails from the Bronx, New York can find herself only trailing by an average of 5 points over the last two polls against a two term conservative incumbent in a conservative district.

Angie Paccione, dead even in a poll her campaign has commissioned, has run a cagey and hard fought campaign and has raised over $1 million for her bid in Colorado's fourth congressional district.

The fourth, which runs the expanse of Colorado's rural eastern plains, has an African American population of less than 1%. However, the incumbent Cong. Marilyn Musgrave, a very conservative member of Congress, may be catching some of the downdraft of the Republican free fall that seems to be occurring across the country.

If Paccione pulls this out the Democratic win nationally will have been decisive and massive and the CBC will have it first member from the Colorado.
