Colorado 7th District: A Reflection of the Nation
When Colorado's 7th Congressional District was created after the 2000 Census it became an instant political bellwether . Fighting between Democrats and Republicans resulted in a judge drawing the new district's boundaries. To be fair the judge made the 7th District evenly divided between voters registered as Republican, Democrat or Unaffiliated. The result is a district sometimes called the most competitive in the country, with a three-way split that mirrors voting divisions in Colorado and the nation as a whole. The seat was held by a Republican until 2007, when the district swung Democrat. Representative Ed Perlmutter was re-elected with a huge 27% margin of victory. This year, as the nation looks set to swing right, Perlmutter could be in trouble. The latest RCP Average has him running behind by a thin 1% to Republican Challenger Ryan Frazer.
