Mike Fallon, Republican candidate in District 1, takes on Diana DeGette, seeks cure for Congress

It's the middle of the afternoon and Mike Fallon is at Pint's Pub. The Republican candidate for Colorado's 1st Congressional District wasn't driven to the bottle by the rigors of campaigning, however.

Rather, he's holding the first in a series of town-hall meetings that will take place at bars and coffee shops around Denver.

Still, one could sympathize with Fallon if he did need a drink. He's running in a district that hasn't elected a Republican since 1970.
