I think so.

Joe Lieberman ran for his Senate seat in 2000 as well as the Vice Presidency.

I think rules regarding Senate seats (i.e. running for both Senate and a higher office) vary by state. I'm not sure about House seats though.

Texas law has a specific exception that permits a candidate to run for President or Vice President while also running for another office.

Election Code 141.033. FILING APPLICATIONS FOR MORE THAN ONE OFFICE PROHIBITED.
    (a) A candidate may not file applications for a place on the ballot for two or more offices that:
        (1)  are not permitted by law to be held by the same person;  and           
        (2)  are to be voted on at one or more elections held on the same day.     
   (b)  If a person files more than one application for a place on a ballot in violation of this section, each application filed subsequent to the first one filed is invalid.
   (c)  This section does not apply to candidacy for the office
of president or vice-president of the United States and another
office.

I didn't see a similar provision in the Colorado statutes.

South Carolina does not permit one to run for two offices, and it has no Bentsen-inspired exception for the President and Vice-President.  Of course if the GOP nominee decides he wants Graham as his running mate, I expect that will quickly change.

I think so.  That's happened 3 times:
1960: LBJ runs for VP and Senator from Texas
1988: Lloyd Bentsen runs for VP and Senator from Texas
2000: Joe Lieberman runs for VP and Senator from Connecticut.
