Democracy for America endorses Morgan Carroll in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District
Today, Democracy for America (DFA) announced its endorsement of Morgan Carroll in her race against Republican Representative Mike Coffman in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.

Statement from DFA Chair Jim Dean on the grassroots organization’s endorsement of Morgan Carroll:
“From working to create a military family relief fund to battling big business interests to pass lobbying and campaign finance reforms, Morgan Carroll has spent her life standing up to the wealthy and powerful and fighting for everyday Coloradans.
“Morgan Carroll is one of those rare leaders who knows what it’s like to work a minimum wage job, and through that experiences understands that Americans can’t afford leaders in Washington who are bought and sold by special interests.
“DFA members in Colorado and across the country are so excited to support Morgan Carroll in her race for Congress, because she knows that struggling working families need big change and has the experience to make that change happen.” -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America.
