Alice Madden Launches Senate Campaign: "we need to fight climate change just as hard as we fight Donald Trump"

  • 3 Comments
  • by: MaddenforColorado

Former Colorado House Democratic Majority Leader and Obama Administration official Alice Madden launched her U.S. Senate campaign today with a promise to get this country back on track.

Click here to see the launch video.

“We are now facing two man-made disasters unlike any others,” Madden said in her launch video promoted with a significant digital advertising buy. “I’m running for Senate because we need to fight climate change just as hard as we fight Donald Trump.”

 

Known as the architect of the Democratic takeover of the Colorado legislature, Madden became the first Democratic House Majority Leader in decades. She has dedicated her career to helping Colorado families thrive, protecting our iconic western landscapes, and educating the next generation of leaders.

 

As a young attorney, she protected access to reproductive health and helped victims of domestic violence. As a legislator, she got healthcare coverage for tens of thousands more Colorado kids, fought for education funding, and transformed Colorado from lagging behind to leading the nation in clean energy. She served as Climate Change Advisor to Governor Bill Ritter, helping develop Colorado’s New Energy Economy. As an appointee in the Obama Administration, she worked on expanding clean energy across the country.

 

“We need leaders who can solve the problems that keep Coloradons up at night, like affordable health care, quality education, gun violence, and economic opportunity,” said Madden. “Our state deserves a Senator who will represent Colorado values – not his special interest donors. There’s just too much at stake and I know that I can get our country back on track.”

 

Madden has both a Bachelor’s and a law degree from the University of Colorado. She and her husband Pete, a manufacturing engineer, have two grown sons — and in their first film appearance (but probably not their last), two dogs, Lily and Katie.

  1. “we need to fight climate change just as hard as we fight Donald Trump”

    Anyone know what this means?

    Pragmatically, fighting Trump means, at most, one more election and 5.5 years of resistance, then some period of rear-guard and mop-up effort.  Anyone think something similar will be what is needed for fighting climate change?

    1. It is simply not true that Madden "became the first Democratic House Majority leader in 60 years." Democrats won the house in the 1 964 and 1974 sweeps.

      Does this just mean the first Woman Democratic House Majority leader?  Otherwise some flack has some explaining to do to former House Majority Leader Bob Kirscht, D-Pueblo who served ably in1975-76.

  2. Still sticking to the utterly false claim that Madden was the first Democratic majority leader in 60 years?

    it's one thing to make a mistake, even a stupid one. To brazenly keep claiming it after I pointed out the truth — that Democrats won the House in 1964 and 1974 — speaks ill of this campaign.
