The Senate race in Colorado has begun to turn in favor of the Republicans over the last few months but that favor may grow as this week it was learned that some 22,000 citizens are losing their healthcare plans. But Politico claims it is “unclear” if those cancellations are a result of Obamacare.
On Friday, only weeks before voters go to the polls, the Colorado Division of Insurance announced that 22,000 Coloradoans were losing their insurance plans this year and another 200,000 will likely lose theirs in 2015.
The announcement could not have come at a worse time for incumbent Democrat Senator Mark Udall whose campaign has recently begun to flounder in the face of a surging Republican opponent.
Surprising many in the Centennial State, Congressman Cory Gardner has jumped ahead of the long-time Senator and this massive wave of healthcare insurance policy cancellations could drive even more Republicans and independents to the polls next month.
To capitalize on the situation, Cory Gardner said in a statement,”Coloradoans continue to pay the price for Senator Udall’s broken promise. It’s unfortunate that Senator Udall has been so eager to please President Obama that he has forgotten thousands of Coloradoans across our state.”
