Colorado is a "purple" state. We have a Democratic governor, a Republican and Democratic senator, 7 reps, 4 Dems, 3 Reps. Denver has a mayor who was elected in a non-partisan election, but is a known Democrat.

Houston is more moderate than it is either Liberal or conservative. But it is democratic. Gore won Houston in 2000 and Kerry won Houston four years later. If Obama is the democratic nominee, Gore will win the city of Houston in a landslide. Obama may lose Harris county, but the city will be going to Obama. Same with Dallas( I predict the City of Dallas as well as Dallas County goes to Obama if he wins the candidacy), Austin, and maybe, just maybe, San Antonio. Houston however is becoming more liberal with each passing year.

I grew up near the Westminster Business, it's pretty conservative down there. I know there's a couple of pockets of liberals in areas like Downtown and the Southwestern areas.

no it's not. I know you love Waco and all. But let's be real. There is hardly anything liberal about Waco or North Central Texas. If Waco is liberal, so is Oklahoma city.

That maybe so. But Houston especially the inner loop is more liberal than it is conservative. Houston is becoming more blue with each passing year.
