Colorado Dems Statement on the 2021 Election

Denver, CO – The Colorado Democratic Party released the following statement reacting to last night’s election:

Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party:

“While there are still many Colorado ballots that need to be counted for a number of races that are currently too close to call, we are proud of the great wins we saw in Jefferson and Larimer County School Boards, and municipal races in Delta County, Cañon City, Englewood, Broomfield, Pueblo, and Montrose County, among others. Additionally, we are very pleased that voters soundly rejected the Republican-backed measures of Amendment 78 and Proposition 120, and the backdoor voucher program of Proposition 119. We are also pleased to see that many bond measures for public school funding are passing in counties across the state, from Mesa to Morgan County.

“That being said, last night’s election showed what we’ve always believed, that we can take no vote or election for granted. Here in Colorado, it’s more obvious than ever that the Republican dark money machine is alive and well. Just like we have successfully done over the past few election cycles, Colorado Democrats will campaign on our better candidates, our better policies, and our record of delivering for working people all across our state.”
