Suthers' re-election campaign in trouble?



It's not an official poll by any means, but the folks at the website clearly think that Colorado Attorney General John Suthers should not be considered a certainty any longer for a second term.

Suthers, longtime Colorado Springs resident and former district attorney for El Paso and Teller counties, didn't even have a serious opponent until after he joined other state attorneys general in a lawsuit challenging the legality of the health care reform legislation passed by Congress.

Now, though he has earned the affection of tea partiers, Suthers is considered to be in a close fight for the November election against his new Democratic opponent, Stan Garnett.

In its homepage feature called "The Big Line 2010," lists Suthers and Garnett both with odds of 4-1, along with interesting comments. For Suthers, the site says, "HC (health care) lawsuit took Suthers from shoo-in to fighting for his political life." For Garnett, the comment says, "Garnett is good on the stump and will raise big $; tossup."

That same listing of odds has Denver mayor John Hickenlooper leading the governor race over Republican Scott McInnis, with Hickenlooper at 3-1 and McInnis sliding to 10-1 because "refusing to release tax return hurts cred." In fact, the site suggests that McInnis' main GOP challenger, Dan Maes, still has a chance to win the party's nomination in the Aug. 10 primary.
