An update from last night’s post: Senator Michael Bennet ’87, of Colorado, will indeed be holding onto his senate seat, trumping Republican opponent Ken Buck in one of the nation’s closest races. Bennet responds:
I am grateful to the the thousands of Coloradans who made this victory possible, who gave so much to our campaign, knocking on doors, making calls, and working tirelessly to ensure we leave more opportunity to the next generation. Yesterday, Colorado chose to move our state and this country forward. I will do everything I can to live up to the confidence you have placed in me.
