Another pro-lifish Democrat?

Pro-life Democrat Vying for Governor

DENVER -- After eight years of chafing under the rule of Republican Gov. Bill Owens, Colorado Democrats have a candidate for governor with a real shot at winning -- and he opposes abortion.
Bill Ritter, the former Denver district attorney who's running unchallenged for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, doesn't describe himself as pro-life -- but he is also not pro-choice -- thus violating what has become a virtual litmus test for Democratic officeholders.
His candidacy has created an awkward situation for state Democrats, who are presented this year with an opportunity to capture both the legislature and the governor's mansion.
