Republican Lamborn Holds CO5 for GOP: In an election for U.S. House of Representatives from Colorado's 5th Congressional District today, 11/4/06, Republican Doug Lamborn appears to hold off a late advance from Democrat Jay Fawcett, according to a SurveyUSA poll of 596 likely voters conducted exclusively for KUSA-TV Denver. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA KUSA-TV poll released 10/19/06, Lamborn's support is flat: 51% then, 51% today. But Fawcett's support is up: 38% then, 42% now. Lamborn had led by 13 points, now by 9 points. Republicans outnumber Democrats in the District 2:1. Though Fawcett gets 93% of Democrat votes, that does not appear to be enough. Incumbent Republican Congressman Joel Hefley is retiring from Congress after 20 years in office.
