Andrew Romanoff playing Scott Brown to Michael Bennet's Martha Coakley?

U.S. Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff told delegates at the Colorado Democratic Party state assembly today that he would support his rival, U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, if Bennet wins the August primary. But Romanoff (who later won top line on that ballot after beating Bennet 60 percent to 40 percent) also made this remark to the delegates before they cast their votes...

"But with all due respect, let me also say this: this Senate seat doesn't belong to him (Bennet) any more than it belong to me. It belongs to the people of Colorado. It belongs to you."

That sounds a lot like what Republican Scott Brown of Massachusetts said during a U.S. Senate debate in January. Brown was asked by moderator David Gergen if Brown would be willing to block health care reform while sitting in Ted Kennedy's longtime Senate seat.

"With all due respect," said Brown. "It's not the Kennedys' seat and it's not the Democrats' seat. It's the people's seat."

Eight days later, Brown won the Senate seat over Democrat Martha Coakley, 52 to 47 percent.
