Colorado Senate: Buck Won’t Commit to Supporting McConnell

WHEAT RIDGE, CO - OCTOBER 14:  Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate Ken Buck speaks with supporters at a campaign stop on October 14, 2010 in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. Buck, the Tea Party favorite and district attorney in Weld County, Colorado, is running a strong campaign against incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO). Most polls have the formerly unknown Buck in a close race with Bennet, who was appointed to the Senate seat in 2009 to replace Interior Secretary Ken Salazar after he joined the Obama administration.

Colorado Republican Senate candidate “Ken Buck said Tuesday night he wouldn’t commit to supporting Mitch McConnell (Ky.) as Senate GOP leader,” The Hill reports.

Buck joined several other Republican Senate candidates aligned with the Tea Party movement who haven’t yet signed on to supporting McConnell as the party’s top official in the Senate.

"You know, I’m going to make that decision when we get there," Buck said on the Fox Business Network when asked if he’d be supporting McConnell for leader. "I am not going to try to guess who’s running and who’s not running."
