Ken Buck to Run for Colo. Senate

Wants to challenge Mark Udall if he can win GOP primary


Ken Buck, the Colorado conservative who blew a winnable 2010 Senate race, will try again in 2014.

The Weld County district attorney beat lymphoma this year and believes he can beat freshman Sen. Mark Udall (D) next year.

Buck joins Alaska's Joe Miller, who defeated a GOP incumbent in a 2010 primary only to lose to her write-in campaign in the general, in trying to run for Senate again.

First, Buck will need to prevail in a Republican primary over two state senators — Randy Baumgardner and Owen Hill.
