There's an undecided Congressional race in Colorado.(

The race undergoing a mandatory recount is in a recently redrawn Congressional district that is half-and-half in major party support. The growing trend has been the creation of safe districts and the reduction of close races to a small number of key contests. In some ways, this trend feels like a bargain to back away from an huge arms race. Just imagine the political climate and the dollars tossed around if almost every Congressional race was a virtual toss-up every two years. And you thought we were living in an uncivil political age.
