In Colorado, the most recent race call made Eliza Hamrick (D), a teacher who ran in a suburban Denver state House district, the 50th woman elected out of 100 total members in the House and Senate. The expected victory by Janice Marchman (D), also a teacher, in a Colorado Springs-area state Senate race would bring the legislature to a record 51% female representation.
Women are also set to hold the top three leadership positions in the state House for the first time in the state’s history. The Democratic caucus elected Reps. Julie McCluskie as speaker, Monica Duran as majority leader, and Jennifer Bacon as assistant majority leader.
“For the first time in state history, Colorado celebrates a legislature with a majority of women lawmakers, and including the most diverse, female-led House leadership team to date,” Speaker-designate McCluskie said in a statement to Pluribus News. “Together, we’re moving Colorado forward with bold new ideas and diverse representation that stretches from our cities to our mountain and rural communities. I couldn’t be more proud to lead a caucus that reflects the state we all love.”
