A group of liberal advocacy organizations for the first time released combined legislative scorecards this week, conglomerating assessments of the 100 Colorado lawmakers’ votes last session on key legislation the organizations said they plan to present to voters next year. A Republican who received among the lowest overall scores, however, dismissed the endeavor as a “political stunt” and told Colorado Politics he doubts the predictable rankings — Democrats good, Republicans bad — give voters any meaningful information.

Democrats and two Republicans joined forces to defeat a closely watched anti-abortion bill in the Republican-controlled Colorado Senate on Thursday. Indeed <a href="http://leg.colorado.gov/sites/default/files/documents/2017A/bills/2017A_284_01.pdf" target="_blank">Senate Bill 284</a> might have passed had Democrats not forced the one-seat majority caucus members to go on record for or against the bill. Swing-seat Republican Sens. Don Coram from Durango and Beth Martinez Humenik from Thornton joined the 17 Democrats on the floor of the chamber to defeat the bill.
