  • Incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet joined the U.S. Senate in 2009 after Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter appointed him to succeed Sen. Ken Salazar after Salazar was appointed Secretary of the Interior by President Barack Obama. Prior to his appointment, Bennet served as Superintendent of Denver Public Schools, presiding over increased student enrollment and graduation rates.

    Sen. Bennet won his first full term in office in the close 2010 election against Rep. Ken Buck. In 2013, Bennet played a key role as a member of the Gang of Eight in the passage of comprehensive immigration reform out of the U.S. Senate. In twelve years of service in the Senate, Sen. Bennet has been a consistent supporter of voting rights, abortion rights, nondiscrimination and LGBTQ+ rights, reducing gun violence, environmental protection and confronting human-caused climate change, and ending the failed War on Drugs.

    Sen. Bennet's signature policy achievement in office came with the March 2021 passage of the Child Tax Credit expansion as part of the American Rescue Plan. The expanded Child Tax Credit resulted in an historic reduction in child poverty for the one-year period in which the program was fully funded. Sen. Bennet's top priority in 2023 is to make the Child Tax Credit expansion permanent. In 2019, Sen. Bennet joined with Republican Sen. Mitt Romney to call for a universal basic income standard for children.

    Sen. Bennet can negotiate with Republicans across the aisle and influence policy with the Democratic Senate majority and the White House. Bennet was the driving force behind President Joe Biden's establishment of a new national monument at Camp Hale and drilling protections in the ecologically sensitive Thompson Divide.

    Sen. Bennet's opponent, concrete executive Joe O'Dea, tried and failed to hide his far-right agenda from Colorado voters. During the Republican primary, O'Dea claimed to be "personally very pro-life," and proudly admitted after winning the nomination that he was a supporter of Proposition 115, an abortion restriction measure that failed overwhelmingly in 2020. Despite this, O'Dea has falsely claimed to be "pro choice" in deceptive campaign ads. O'Dea was proud to claim the support of members of the Trump administration during the primary, then tried to back away from Trump after winning the nomination.

    The contrast between Michael Bennet's record of service and policy wins in the U.S. Senate and Joe O'Dea's empty promises concealing a right-wing agenda could not be greater. Bennet is the clear progressive choice.

Congress

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below congressional districts on your ballot.

  • Incumbent U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette is seeking her 14th term representing Colorado’s 1st Congressional District. DeGette, a lawyer, is Colorado’s most senior national legislator, the dean of its nine-member delegation, and the state’s only female Democrat in Congress.

    A lifelong Denverite, she has dedicated her career to protecting the environment, expanding access to health care, and fighting for reproductive justice. Before being elected to Congress, DeGette served two terms in the Colorado House of Representatives, where she protected access to abortion clinics. She continues this work in Congress as co-chair of the Pro-Choice Caucus.

    DeGette has been recognized for her ability to work across party lines to deliver results. Some of her biggest achievements include playing an important role in the passage of the Affordable Care Act, co-authoring legislation that modernized medical research, and spearheading improvements in protecting our nation’s food supply. As chair of a key oversight panel, DeGette has led the effort to hold the Trump administration accountable for separating undocumented children from their families. DeGette has also been an outspoken advocate for enacting commonsense gun safety measures, safeguarding Colorado’s public lands, and protecting American consumers.

    DeGette's Republican opponent, Jennifer Qualteri, is an accountant for the State of Colorado. Qualteri has no political or earned media record other than her nomination to run in one of the state's Democratic strongholds. Qualteri's social media posts include references to baseless claims of election fraud in 2020.

    Diana DeGette is one of the state's longest-serving and most effective progressive leaders. If reelected, DeGette will continue being the strong, progressive voice that Denver needs in Washington.

    We recommend she be retained in office to continue serving the people of Denver.

  • Incumbent U.S. Rep. Joe Neguse is running for reelection in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District. Neguse, a lawyer and the son of Eritrean refugees, is the first and so far only Black American to serve Colorado in Congress. Prior to his election to Congress, Neguse served as a University of Colorado Regent representing the 2nd District and a legislative aide under Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff.

    As a vice-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Neguse advocates for bold progressive policies to address the most pressing issues facing our nation, such as Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. His priorities to date in Congress have included lowering prescription drug prices, raising workers’ wages, ensuring greater accountability in government, and protecting public lands, which make up over 50% of his district.

    In Rep. Neguse's first two-year term in office, he introduced more legislation than any freshman lawmaker in the country and has had more legislation signed into law than any member of Colorado’s congressional delegation. As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, Neguse played a key role in holding former President Donald Trump accountable in Trump's second impeachment trial. Before Congress, Neguse fought to expand opportunities for families across Colorado in a variety of roles: as a co-founder of New Era Colorado, the state’s largest youth voter registration and mobilization nonprofit; as a six-term member of CU’s Board of Regents; and as leader of the state’s consumer protection agency for two years.

    Neguse is a self-described eternal optimist who will continue to provide Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District with enthusiastic, diligent, and bold representation if reelected.

    Rep. Neguse's Republican opponent, Marshall Dawson, is the vice-chairman of the Boulder County Republicans with no elected experience, and is considered a placeholder candidate in a race where Republicans have no realistic chance at winning.

    Progressive voters should vote for Joe Neguse.

  • Incumbent U.S. Rep. Jason Crow, a lawyer and former Army Ranger who completed three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, is running for reelection in Colorado's 6th Congressional District. In 2018, he defeated longtime Republican incumbent Mike Coffman to become the first Democrat ever to represent this district.

    Before serving in Congress, Crow spent years helping veterans like himself who struggled to receive benefits, focusing his work on veteran homelessness and substance abuse issues. Then, during his first term, Crow stepped into the national spotlight as one of the seven impeachment managers who argued for Donald Trump’s removal from office during the Senate trial. Crow made the case that Trump put both Ukraine’s safety and the U.S.’s national security at risk by withholding military aid in exchange for political favors.

    Crow’s district is the most diverse in Colorado, with 1 in 5 residents being born outside the United States; Crow has said this is what makes his community such a special place to live. He supports protecting DREAMers and passing comprehensive immigration reform and has called for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to end its contracts with private prison companies.

    Crow has worked on instituting campaign finance reform. The first bill he sponsored, the End Dark Money Act, would prevent mega-donors from being able to hide their political contributions. His other priorities include preventing gun violence, combatting the effects of climate change, ensuring small businesses are able to thrive, and fighting for a bold investment in America’s infrastructure.

    Rep. Crow's opponent Steven Monahan is a political newcomer and officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve. In Monahan's candidate questionnaire from the Denver Post, Monahan repeated discredited talking points about the Inflation Reduction Act and expressed support for the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

    Rep. Crow has served the residents of the 6th Congressional District with distinction and is the clear progressive choice in this race.

  • State Sen. Brittany Pettersen is the progressive candidate running for the open 7th Congressional District seat being vacated by retiring long-time Rep. Ed Perlmutter. Pettersen has represented the west Denver suburbs since her original election in 2012 to the Colorado House, then succeeding Sen. Andy Kerr in Senate District 22 in 2019. Pettersen is opposed by Erik Aadland, an avowed election conspiracy theorist with no experience in public office.

    In the Colorado General Assembly, Pettersen has been a leading advocate for criminal justice reform and combating the opioid addiction crisis that threatens communities across the state and nation. Pettersen helped pass landmark Equal Pay for Equal Work legislation which has been modeled in other states. Pettersen was one of the sponsors of the Colorado Option health insurance reform measure intended to reduce premiums on the individual market by up to 20%. In Congress, Petterson has promised to fight for the repeal of the 2017 Trump Tax Cuts and a fairer tax policy for all Americans.

    Erik Aadland is an Army veteran with no political experience best known for his belief that the 2020 presidential election was "rigged." Aadland supports sweeping cuts to federal spending that would endanger social safety nets like Medicare and Social Security, and refuses to confirm that humans are impacting the global climate. Aadland also opposed Colorado's law codifying abortion rights while supporting the repeal of Roe v. Wade.

    Pettersen is far and away the superior candidate to succeed Rep. Perlmutter and continue to provide strong progressive leadership to the 7th Congressional District.

  • Dr. Yadira Caraveo, who has served in the Colorado House of Representatives since 2019, is the progressive candidate in Colorado's brand-new 8th Congressional District, one of the most evenly-divided and competitive congressional districts in the nation. Her race is proving to be one of the most important 2022 electoral battlegrounds.

    Caraveo is a pediatrician who graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine. In the Colorado House, Caraveo has played a major role in the passage of health coverage, prescription drug affordability, education, economic development, and legislation to reduce toxic air pollution. Caraveo is a proven supporter of abortion rights, helping pass legislation to protect abortion rights in Colorado ahead of the Supreme Court's reversal of Roe v. Wade. Caraveo has a reputation at the state capitol as a tireless organizer who is constantly in touch with her constituents through town halls and other outreach campaigns.

    State Sen. Barbara Kirkmeyer first became known outside Weld County when she helped organize a ballot initiative campaign to begin the process of seceding from the state of Colorado and forming the new state of "North Colorado" with Greeley as its capital city. As a Weld County Commissioner and then in the Colorado Senate, Kirkmeyer earned a reputation for uncompromising anti-abortion grandstanding and total devotion to the oil and gas industry over the best interests of her constituents. Kirkmeyer was criticized as county commissioner for reimbursing herself over $70,000 in taxpayer dollars for vehicle expenses.

    Yadira Caraveo represents the very best in elected leadership in Colorado today, and is the easy choice to recommend for Colorado's 8th Congressional District.

  • Incumbent Gov. Jared Polis' record of public service to the state of Colorado goes back over two decades to his election in 2000 to serve as at-large member of the Colorado State Board of Education. After helping found the New America Schools to serve recent immigrant students focused on English language instruction, Polis was elected in 2008 to represent Colorado's 2nd Congressional District, succeeding Mark Udall who was elected to the U.S. Senate that year.

    In the U.S. House, Polis was a strong advocate for health care and immigration reform, serving on the House Education, Natural Resources, and Rules Committees. Polis received an 89% lifetime score from the League of Conservation Voters after leading the fight for a variety of important environmental reform initiatives including reducing methane pollution, protecting clean water resources, and addressing the threat of human-caused global climate change.

    Elected to his first term as Governor of Colorado in 2018, Polis quickly went to work with the progressive majority in the Colorado General Assembly to successfully enact a comprehensive agenda of health care reform, inclusive economic development, education funding, anti-discrimination and equal wage protections, and environmental justice legislation. Senate Bill 19-181, a fossil fuel extraction reform measure, fundamentally changed the purpose of Colorado's oil and gas oversight authorities to prioritize public health and environmental protection over industry profits.

    During the COVID-19 pandemic, Polis' leadership and deliberate work to minimize partisan conflict with the Trump administration helped the state reduce economic harm while keeping the state's overall death rate from the pandemic well below the national average. Once the threat of the pandemic's spread without vaccines and effective treatments was past, Polis was at the head of the curve nationally in working to re-open Colorado's economy.

    Polis' opponent, University of Colorado Regent Heidi Ganahl, is the only remaining statewide Republican elected official after years of losses in recent elections. Ganahl described herself as "The MAGA candidate Colorado has been waiting for," and is by for the most openly pro-Trump candidate on the statewide ballot in Colorado. As CU Regent, Ganahl enthusiastically supported Trump coup plotter John Eastman's paid appointment as the school's "Visiting Conservative Scholar." Ganahl's campaign has employed key members of Trump's former legal team. Ganahl's platform of slashing state revenue while promising to pay for crucial state services has been widely denounced as unrealistic. As governor, Ganahl has pledged to roll back recently-passed legislation protecting abortion rights in Colorado.

    Jared Polis has served the state of Colorado with distinction during one of the greatest period of crisis in the entire nation's history. The choice between Polis and Ganahl's Trump-style bad faith could not be easier. Polis deserves your vote.

  • Incumbent Secretary of State Jena Griswold is an attorney with experience in voting rights and accessibility. Before winning office in 2018, Griswold served as the director of Gov. John Hickenlooper's federal liaison in Washington, D.C. and as an attorney for President Barack Obama's presidential campaign.

    As Secretary of State, Griswold has overseen elections featuring some of the highest rates of voter participation in America, while defending Colorado's gold standard mail ballot election system from repeated baseless attacks from President Donald Trump and election conspiracy theorists. Griswold conducted the initial investigation into a breach of election security by Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters that resulted in numerous felony charges against Peters.

    Griswold's opponent, former Jefferson County Clerk Pam Anderson, severely damaged her once-commendable reputation for standing up to right-wing misinformation by campaigning with Republicans who dispute the results of the 2020 elections. Anderson has refused to condemn election deniers who support her campaign, claiming that would “divide or ostracize people.” Less than two years after Donald Trump's attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential elections, Coloradans cannot responsibly entrust Pam Anderson and the Party of Trump with control over our elections.

    Secretary Griswold is the clear progressive choice in this important statewide race.

  • Incumbent Treasurer Dave Young is running for his second term as Colorado Treasurer after winning office in 2018. Prior to Young's election as Treasurer, he served as a state legislature representing House District 50 in Weld County. In the legislature, Young served on the powerful Joint Budget Committee and chaired the House Appropriations Committee, some of the most important fiscal posts in the General Assembly. On the JBC, Young worked across the aisle each year to hammer out the state's most important annual piece of legislation, the "Long Bill" general fund budget. In 2013, Young helped communities he represents recover from that year's devastating floods.

    As Treasurer, Young worked closely with Gov. Jared Polis to successfully manage the COVID-19 pandemic, with an emphasis on keeping Colorado's small business afloat during the worst of the crisis and swiftly reopening Colorado's economy once it was safe to do so. Young has also worked to streamline and expedite payments to Colorado property owners under the Great Colorado Payback program.

    Young's opponent is Lang Sias, a perennial candidate for a variety of elected offices in Colorado who most recently lost the election to serve as lieutenant governor under Walker Stapleton in 2018. While serving in the U.S. Navy, Lang Sias attended a pilot's convention known as "Tailhook" in 1991 that resulted in nationwide scandal, with allegations of sexual assault committed against 83 women and seven men. Currently a FedEx pilot, Sias' run for this office is due to its availability, not Sias' fiscal policy experience.

    Re-electing Treasurer Dave Young should be one of the easiest choices on this year's ballot.

  • Incumbent Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser is seeking his second term after winning office in 2018. Prior to serving as Colorado Attorney General, Weiser served as Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the U.S. Justice Department during the Obama administration. Weiser also served as a senior counsel at the Justice Department Antitrust Division during the Clinton Administration. Early in his career, Weiser served as a law clerk for Justices Byron White and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

    As Colorado's Attorney General, Weiser has fought to defend Colorado's historic recent progress on health care reform, protecting consumers from exploitation, anti-discrimination laws and Colorado's gold standard election system. Weiser was a nationwide leader in holding drug manufacturers accountable for their role in the opioid addiction crisis, as well as legal action to forgive the student loans of thousands of victims of predatory lenders and scam for-profit colleges.

    Weiser's opponent is District Attorney John Kellner, who succeeded George Brauchler as Arapahoe County DA after Brauchler lost his race for Attorney General in 2018. Kellner's dishonest attacks on Weiser over Colorado's crime rate ignore the stark increase that has occurred in Kellner's own district during the same period. Kellner has expressed his support for the U.S. Supreme Court's overturning of Roe v. Wade, and has promised to "support Colorado law" despite his fellow Republicans' determination to repeal Colorado laws protecting abortion rights.

    Phil Weiser has done an examplary job as the state's chief attorney, and has earned a second term in office.

  • Kathy Plomar has been heavily invested in public education as former President of the Adams 12 Board of Education and former President of the Parent Teacher Organization. Plomar believes in bringing people together with different life experiences to ensure all kids receive an excellent education. Plomar lists three key priorities that will define her work as an at-large State Board of Education member: academic excellence, respecting teachers, and transparency and accountability. Plomar is a solid progressive choice for the State Board of Education.

    The Republican candidate for this seat is Dan Maloit, a parent of three and a medical device sales manager. Maloit recently became involved in politics when he organized for the reopening of schools for full-time, in-person learning in August of 2020, before the development of any COVID-19 vaccines or effective treatments. We recommend voting for Plomar.

McClellan has proven to be a defender of education and Colorado needs her continued leadership. McClellan is the progressive choice.

    Molly Lamar is the Republican candidate. Lamar has been endorsed by many conservative Republicans including Steve Durham, a conservative extremist State Board of Education incumbent that represents the 5th Congressional District.

State Senate

Depending on where you live, you may have one of the below State Senate races on your ballot.

  • Army veteran and incumbent State Sen. Nick Hinrichsen was appointed to his seat in February, 2022 following the departure of Leroy Garcia. In his day job, Hinrichsen serves as the Pueblo Transit's Operations Supervisor. His one-year legislative record paints a picture a man who cares deeply about the safety, security, and dignity of his community.

    Hinrichsen was one of the key legislators that helped distribute excess TABOR funds quickly and more equitably. A supporter of organized labor, Hinrichson pushed collective bargaining rights in the 2022 legislative session. Another key issue that he hopes to continue to support in the state legislature is reproductive justice.

    Stephen Varela is the Republican candidate. As president of a local charter school's board, Varela has generated a fair amount of controversy and community frustration. Several school staff members have resigned in protest over questionable leadership decisions from Varela and the school's CEO. One such incident involved a Republican political rally held in the school's gym instead of an annual charity basketball tournament. On another more recent occasion, Varela attended a Republican event that featured Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz (Gaetz is currently under investigation in a federal sex-trafficking probe). Varela is staunchly against abortion rights and signed on to the Colorado Republican Party platform that calls for a Texas-style law that criminalizes those who help someone receive abortion care. Varela would be a serious danger to progressive interests if elected.

    In one of the state's closest state senate races, with legislative majorities on the line, progressives should support Nick Hinrichsen.

Varela would be a serious danger to progressive interests if elected.

  • Dylan Roberts is a current State Representative who is running to represent Senate District 8. As a law graduate of the University of Colorado, Roberts was born and raised in Routt county. Roberts voting record includes bills that help save people money by lowering the costs of prescription drugs, capping the price of insulin, supporting abortion care, and developing the state’s public health care option. Roberts has experience work across the aisle and producing better outcomes for Colorado families. He is a solid progressive candidate.

    Running against Roberts is gun store owner Matt Solomon. In 2014, Solomon appeared before a Colorado State Senate committee to support a bill that would have removed universal background checks in Colorado for private firearm sales and transfers. Solomon testified that his business refused to provide background checks for private gun sales. On abortion, Solomon has said that the state should get rid of the Reproductive Health Equity Act, a 2022 bill that enshrines the right to abortion care in Colorado state law. Following the overturning of Roe vs. Wade by the US Supreme Court, progressives should make sure that their state senators will not back down on abortion rights.

    Roberts is the clear progressive choice.

During the pandemic, he founded the COVID Eviction Defense Fund, providing hundreds of families eviction prevention services and legal aid since COVID started. His priorities include increasing access to affordable health care, fighting to defend women’s reproductive health, affordable housing, climate justice, criminal justice reform, advocating for increased public school funding, and family economic security.

    Progressives clearly can and should support Mabrey.

    Guillermo Diaz is the Republican opponent who wants to restrict the state's available revenue, funnel more money into police, and restrict children from learning about our difficult, yet necessary history. Diaz is a bad choice for any district.

  • Incumbent State Rep. Steven Woodrow is a strong progressive who has been described by fellow legislators as a “fierce advocate for the voiceless” and a “tireless public servant.” During Colorado's redistricting process, he moved into the newly drawn House District 2 from his original House District 6. He was originally appointed to his seat in February, 2020 to fill a vacancy when Chris Hansen resigned from the Colorado House of Representatives to fill Lois Court's seat.

    Before entering the legislature, Woodrow went toe-to-toe against powerful interests as a consumer protection attorney. In three legislative sessions, he co-sponsoring bills on repealing Colorado’s death penalty, allowing state employees to collectively bargain, and kick-starting comprehensive police reform. He later supported tax reform, family economic security, state funding the child tax credit, and expanding Medicaid to 12 months postpartum.

    If reelected, Woodrow hopes to publicly fund state House and Senate races to remove special-interest money out of politics, increase teacher pay, and protect our environment. His campaign motto is to leave Colorado “better than we found it.” Any progressive should feel good voting for Woodrow.

    On the other side of the race is Republican Stephanie Wheeler, a mother and small business owner. Wheeler's primary concern is cutting existing social programs and making sure that our tax dollars are not "indoctrinating [children] with liberal propaganda."

    Woodrow is the clear progressive choice.

  • Incumbent State Rep. Meg Froelich has a long history of activism for women’s rights, children’s welfare, education, community leadership, and environmental protection. Since being appointed to her seat in 2019, she has co-sponsored and passed bills on issues ranging from public-sector collective bargaining to accountability in law enforcement to expanding Medicaid. Most recently, Froelich was a primary sponsor on the Reproductive Health Equity Act, which made abortion a constitutional right for all Coloradans. She was at the forefront of addressing the Dobbs decision and the fall of Roe v. Wade. She has been a champion of environmental justice, and has worked to ban anti-LGBTQ conversion therapy.

    Froelich’s experience as a successful legislator, her leadership in reproductive rights and health, and her dedication to the people of Colorado make her the preferred candidate in this race.

    On the other side of the ballot is Republican Marla Fernandez. Fernandez is a conspiracy theorist with hard right positions in opposition to abortion rights, any environmental protections, and gun-violence prevention. Recently, Fernandez refused to apologize for a tweet referring to Black and Latina legislators "chimps," a deeply racist epithet. Under no circumstances should Fernandez become a state legislator.

    We strongly encourage voters to reelect Meg Froelich.

  • Stephanie Vigil is a Colorado Spring resident who is running for Colorado House District 16. Vigil has had personal experiences dealing with issues such as poverty, and child abuse and disability, which served as a catalyst for her to run for office. Therefore, Vigil has prioritized climate and energy, education, and housing as some of her key issues. Advocating for a “Greenhouse Gas Pollution Reduction” road map, getting Colorado teachers fair wages and resources, and forwarding legislation that will level the power between renters and landlords.

His idea of “fundamentals” is ridding Colorado children of "Critical Race Theory" (which is not taught in Colorado public schools) and "Diversity Equity and Inclusion." Donelson believes these are dangerous ideas and should not play a role in children’s education. To prepare children for the future, we need to teach them both the good and the bad of our history so that they better understand the lives, cultures and experiences of different people.
