Debate season is in high gear for Gardner and Udall

Lynn Bartels --- The Denver Post 

U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, a Democrat, and his Republican challenger, Congressman Cory Gardner, square off three times this week, including the Denver Post’s debate Tuesday.

The two are engaged in one of the fiercest battles nationwide. Udall is fending off attacks about what he has accomplished for Colorado; Gardner faces criticism he is too right-wing for a state like Colorado.

The Post debate, which will be held in the Denver Post auditorium begins at 6 p.m., lasts an hour and will be live streamed on the Denver Post website.

The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and other business coalitions are hosting a debate Monday that will be moderated by Politico. The debate, which also features the gubernatorial candidates, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, and the GOP challenger, former Congressman Bob Beauprez, will focus both on Colorado’s business climate and on national issues important to Colorado businesses.
