Who have we elected?

Denver has elected lots of great Democrats over the years. In 2004, the Democrats won control of the Colorado House of Representative and Colorado Senate for the first time in decades and took over the U.S. Senate seat by electing Ken Salazar. In 2006, we extended Democratic gains to the Governor's Mansion by electing a Democratic Governor, Lt. Governor, and Treasurer.
