AND IN COLORADO Running for an open Senate seat against Ken Salazar, Pete Coors has triggered the "Millionaire's Amendment" provision of campaign finance law by pouring more than $571,840 of his own money into his candidacy.

Under the law, Salazar's contribution limits are automatically bumped up to $6,000 per donor--triple the normal limit--for the rest of the campaign.
