Will we be saying “Governor Ritter” in 10 days? It looks that way from the latest Mason-Dixon poll.

But, it’s not a done deal. Bob Beauprez has been picking up support in Colorado Springs. A major suprise in Iraq or in the war on terror or war on immigrants could still turn things around.

Bill Ritter can’t rest yet. He needs to campaign his heart out this week and stress his attributes, not Beauprez’ failings. The negative ads do nothing except turn people off to politics.
