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.
In 2008, we worked hard to maintain our local seats, took over the other Colorado U.S. Senate seat by electing Mark Udall, and won back the White House electing Barack Obama as our President. in 2014, our mid-term elections resulted in losing Senator Udall and some seate in the house. Participating in the DPoD is important and appreciated so that we may regain our hard earned presence and maintain it with elected officials who represent our values and respect us as citizens.
