When GQ offered to make over Colorado Congressman Jared Polis -- caught on camera wearing a polo shirt with a bow tie -- we couldn't resist offering our own makeover suggestions for the Boulder Democrat.

So when two Republicans recently announced they were going to join the hordes going for statewide office in November, we felt it only fair to offer updates for Bob Beauprez, now running (again) for governor, and Congressman Cory Gardner, who's aiming to unseat Mark Udall in the U.S. Senate.

Cory Gardner.
As the U.S. Representative for the fourth congressional district, Cory Gardner covers a lot of territory.

But most of it is rural and conservative.

So conservative that some counties in his general vicinity recently voted to secede from Colorado and launch a new state.

Now that he's going for a statewide seat, he'll need to tread some unfamiliar turf.

If he wants to move up from the House to the Senate, a mountain man look could help him cut into Udall's environmental constituency....

...or maybe, to dirty up that Howdy Doody image, Gardner should rev up his bad-boy self -- and hit the road as a biker. Talk about vroom service!
