The Governor Line has been updated. Here's the rundown on the movers (no shakers this week)...
Mark Udall drops slightly because his indecision is weakening his leverage and mystique. The Democratic nomination is probably his if he jumps in, but in another few weeks the field is going to fill without him. Udall also recently received an appointment to the Armed Services Committee, which could play a part in any decision to stay out of the race.
Mike Coffman moves up because he is raising money at a decent pace. We also took into account something that jumped out at us in looking over his resume more closely. Coffman has decided against running for two congressional seats (6 & 7) and didn't put his name in the hat for U.S. Senate last year. He looks like a guy who has planned his career for this race, and somebody who wants the seat as bad as he looks like he does will automatically move up in our book.
Bob Beauprez continues to drop as Mini-Marc Holtzman and Mighty Mike Coffman continue to show more activity. Beauprez would beat both of them, but we don't think he'll run as long as there is a decent GOP ticket without him.
Tom Tancredo drops because it appears as though the 2008 Presidential ticket is his immediate goal, however unlikely that may seem, and he is making serious moves to try to be a player in that race.
Rutt Bridges and Bill Ritter stayed put because they are running in place, but Coffman gets a slight nod over Bridges only because he is definitely in the race and Rutt is not...yet.
