And We're Back!

After a break of a few months to blog for 5280 Magazine, Mile High Politics is back!

Colorado is on the brink of summer (though it might be hard to tell with all the rain in Denver for the past month). And this summer is the time that all the big backroom decisions are being made for 2010 -- who's going to run, who's going to work for whom, and who's going to cajole and pressure the competition out.

And the stakes are pretty high. Next year's winners will help oversee legislative redistricting -- and if Democrats stay in control, they'll more than likely redraw the map to help cement their startling gains in Colorado over the past few years. Plus, both Gov. Bill Ritter and U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet are -- at least on paper -- fairly vulnerable.

So thanks for reading, and check back often for the latest non-partisan coverage of Colorado politics!
