Presidential Race

Colorado is a Blue state that has traditionally voted Democrat. Hillary Clinton won this state in 2016, but nothing can be taken for granted in 2020. We need to ensure Joe Biden wins this state.

If you live in Colorado, your vote is still critical to our survival. Voting for a third party or not voting at all is the same is giving your vote to Trump in this state.

AND, you can help win this state for all of us by encouraging a friend, relative, colleague, former neighbor, or somebody else you know to vote, and to vote for our survival, at this election.

Senate Race

Former Presidential candidate, John Hickenlooper is running as the Democratic challenger to Republican incumbent, Cory Gardner. This is a key Senate seat for Democrats to win in order to re-take control of the Senate and enable a Biden administration to pass legislation opposed by current Republican Senate Leader, Mitch McConnell.

Cory Gardner narrowly won his seat in 2014 against the Democratic incumbent at the time, Mark Udall. Since 2016, Gardner has voted in line with President Trump’s position 89.1% of the time, according to the Congressional voting tracker, FiveThirtyFive.

A vote for Hickenlooper is a vote for survival!

House Races

The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.

Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!

If you live in one of these US Congressional Districts, you have a progressive member of Congress to support!
