This past weekend, the political class all piled in a caravan of sorts to Grand Junction, Colo. to participate in the beloved Colorado tradition of the Club 20 debates. The highlights of the debates included the first showdown between Sen. Mark Udall and Rep. Cory Gardner, both vying for Colorado’s U.S. Senate seat as well as the first debate between Gov. John Hickenlooper and Bob Beauprez. This is the first of a four-part series on the debates, covering the Udall/Gardner match, the Hickenlooper/Beauprez tussle, an unapologetic (and endangered) State Representative, and our look at the Club 20 red carpet. Stay tuned, PeakNation™, we’re bringing you the best of the best of Club 20.
First, the highly-anticipated debate between Udall and Gardner. We’ve storified the debate as we saw it (mostly on Twitter).
