The Fourth Senate Seat? Colorado!

In my previous post about vacant US Senate seats here, I neglected the Colorado position expected to be vacant courtesy of Obama's selection of Ken Salazar as Secretary of the Interior - - - a choice that has some environmentalists less than pleased.

As for the replacement to be appointed by Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, Jr., there are "candidates aplenty" as the Washington Times phrases it here.    Among those being mentioned by the NYTimes in its "handicapping": Representative John T. Salazar (the soon-to-be-ex Senator's brother), as well as other possibilities here.
