“The Republicans are performing better across the board then expected in Colorado,” stated Gravis Marketing President Doug Kaplan. “If the polls hold, the GOP will win the Gov and Senate race, shifting the majority of political power to the GOP and classifying the State of Colorado back to a ‘red’ state as it was in the late 1990’s.”
