The United States Senate election in Colorado will be held on November 2, 2010. In December 2008, the then US Senator, Ken Salazar, was selected by President Barack Obama to become the Secretary of the Interior. Thus he had to resign from the Senate. The Democratic Governor, Bill Ritter, appointed Michael Bennet, Denver Public Schools Superintendent to become the Senate for the remainder period. However, Bennet announced soon after that he will run for the election in 2010 to seek a full term.

Bennet is totally new to the elective office, has no experience campaigning. In the primary election, he has to face challenge from Andrew Romanoff from the Democratic Party.

In the Republican Party, the potential candidates are, Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton and Weld County District Attorney, Ken Buck.

In recent weeks, Buck is modestly ahead of Norton in the race having almost 48% support against both his Democratic competitors.
