Great news for Colorado voters—even Republicans decided to vote out the gun toting “mom” Lauren Boebert! The votes are still being counted and with such a small margin between, no doubt there will be controversy, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed. And that alone is enough to celebrate, but there’s more:
“Democratic state Rep. Yadira Caraveo has won the state’s most closely contested and closely watched congressional race this year to become the first representative from Colorado’s new 8th Congressional District. “…it’s also the district with the most Latino residents, making up nearly 40 percent of the population.
“In many ways, the story of my family is the story of this district,” Caraveo said in the statement. “My parents immigrated here to afford us a better life. And because of their hard work, I was able to go to college, become a doctor, and live my version of the American Dream. But for too many people in Colorado, that dream has slipped out of reach. Our District deserves a leader who will fight to restore access to the American Dream for working families.”
Don’t be discouraged, things are changing, fight the good fight peacefully and vote. You will be heard.
Women’s rights to control their own bodies also won small battles, so things are looking up.
