2020 Colorado AFL-CIO Endorsed Candidate Results

The Colorado AFL-CIO is the state federation made up of 185 labor unions with more than 180,000 union members and working families in both the public and private sectors. 

We turned out in record numbers to pick new leaders who will care and govern for all of us. And now we will continue to raise our voices for a government of, by, and for the people. Thank you to our release staff and volunteers, we made over 250,000 phone calls and connected with over 20,000 union members. We delivered Colorado for President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and Senator-elect John Hickenlooper. We expanded the pro-worker majority in the Colorado State Senate and retained the Colorado State House. 

Below is a list of our winning endorsed candidates for the 2020 General Election. Thank you for standing with workers in Colorado.
