Primary Election: Senator waits to hear if he'll keep job

Colorado Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet is the latest incumbent senator battling for his job.

Bennet faces former Colorado House speaker Andrew Romanoff in a primary challenge Tuesday marked by the anti-establishment mood seen in every corner of the nation.

Republicans have their own outsider-versus-insider Senate story line. Former Lt. Gov. Jane Norton faces Ken Buck, a rural prosecutor who has criticized Norton as being too cozy with Washington Republicans.

Colorado's primaries are mostly mail-in. Early ballot counts from state officials indicate primary turnout could reach record highs in some counties.
