Political television commercials are virtually unheard of for Colorado caucuses. But this year is different.

The race may not officially be over because there is still time left on the clock, but like the lopsided score in the second quarter of the New England game, the race is simply out of reach for anyone chasing Mitt Romney.

Two Republican presidential candidates who have given up on the Florida primary vote campaigned in Colorado Tuesday in hopes of a strong showing in next week’s caucuses.
Florida has been an influential state in Presidential races long before 2000.
