Denver Ballot Came With Choice of Bacon or Fries

A Senate race in Colorado featured a mouth-watering matchup.

On a ballot that read like a menu, voters chose between Bacon and Fries. In the end, they reveal a strong appetite for Bacon.

Democrat incumbent Bob Bacon defeated Republican challenger Matt Fries on Tuesday 63 percent to 37 percent to represent the district that encompasses most of Larimer County in northern Colorado.

"I am so pleased that the voters appreciate the work that I have done," Bacon said.

Bacon originally was elected to the seat in 2004 after serving three terms in the state House of Representatives. Fries is a long time education advocate.

According to Denver television station KUSA, Fries actually pronounces his name "Freeze."
