Date: 
Nov 4, 2008

Republican Senator Wayne Allard retired in 2008. Democrat Mark Udall (pictured) won his open seat against Republican Bob Schaffer.

Udall's seat in the 2nd District was held by the Democrats when Jared Polis won over Scott Starin. The Democrats also gained a seat in the House when Republican incumbent Marilyn Musgrave was defeated by Democrat Betsy Markey in the 4th District.

The next Colorado Gubernatorial Election will be held in 2010. Senator Ken Salazar's term also expires in 2010.

Barack Obama won Colorado's 9 electoral votes, and the Colorado voters defeated an amendment that would have defined life beginning at the moment of conception.
