Colo. Supreme Court Upholds Congressional Map

From: Hotline On Call

Colorado Democrats won a major victory on Monday as the state Supreme Court upheld a congressional map that set off a legal fight between the party and Republicans, who opposed the new lines.

In short, the map means Democrats have a new target against second-term Republican Rep. Mike Coffman in suburban Denver, who saw his once-safe district get seven points more Democratic. Freshman GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, who represents the Western Slope-based 3rd District, saw his already vulnerable seat get slightly worse, while freshman GOP Rep. Cory Gardner's district, once a target, got much better for Republicans.

A lower court judge had previously ruled in favor of the map, which Republicans appealed to the state's high court.
