GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — Colorado is less than two weeks out from its 2020 primary, and it’s two democratic senate candidates have one thing in common– a mission to make changes in Washington.
“I was a small business person, a successful mayor, and governor, I think that’s the right background for someone who can change Washington.” – John Hickenlooper, Former Colorado Governor, D
“You look at Washington and you think nothing gets done, and you are right, but it doesn’t have to be that way.” -Andrew Romanoff, former Colorado House Speaker
Closer to home in Western Colorado, John Hickenlooper stresses the importance of getting universal, affordable healthcare.
“These efforts to get to universal coverage are essential for Durango, Grand Junction, Craig, and for the Western Slope as a whole for quality health care, and continue the battle to reduce the cost.” – John Hickenlooper, Former Colorado Governor, D
Andrew Romanoff agrees on the need for expanded health care, but when it comes to mental health in particular, he says if elected, he will continue to lead the fight for mental health services that have helped the Western Slope.
An across the board issue the candidates hope to spearhead is improving broadband across rural Western Colorado.
