Colorado Senate Race Could Drag on for Weeks

Wednesday, 03 Nov 2010 07:02 AM

DENVER (AP) — Colorado's Senate candidates are preparing for a possible recount in their neck-and-neck contest.

Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet and Republican Ken Buck were within a few thousand votes of each other with more than 1.4 million ballots counted. Thousands of provisional and write-in ballots remained to be counted.

Some projections showed the race could end up within half of 1 percentage point. That would trigger an automatic recount under Colorado law, and parties said last week they'd be ready for such a scenario.

Elections officials have until Nov. 26 to verify the full vote and order a recount.

Bennet is seeking his first full term after being appointed to the seat last year. Buck courted tea party groups with a promise to cut spending and push for a federal balanced budget amendment.
