House Democratic Majority Leadership Elections Today

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE #3: From Speaker-designee Mark Ferrandino’s email to supporters moments ago:

With your help, on Tuesday night we were able to not only win back the majority in the Colorado State House, but do it with a broad margin. While all that is needed for Majority is 33 seats, we will enter the January session with 37 members.

We know that the election is just a beginning. We have much work to do keep our economy moving forward and restore the hope that Coloradoans have in their government.  We do not take the responsibility lightly. Through collaboration with our Republican colleagues, the state House is going to accomplish great things for Colorado by working with Governor Hickenlooper and the state Senate.

We are going to take any idea – Democratic, Republican, Independent – that will move Colorado forward. It was clear on Tuesday night that the people of Colorado rejected the politics of gridlock and hyperpartisanship that brought the business of the people to a halt in this last year. Democrats are going to lead in a different direction – forward.

UPDATE #2: FOX 31’s Eli Stokols:

Colorado Democrats elected Rep. Mark Ferrandino to be the new Speaker of the House Thursday – the first time in state history that a gay lawmaker will preside over the Colorado House of Representatives.

Democrats won control of the House in Tuesday’s elections.

Ferrandino, D-Denver, previously served as the minority leader, and was easily promoted to the top power spot by his fellow Democrats.

Choking up he told his fellow lawmakers “I couldn’t dream when I was in high school that I’d be standing here.”

But equality wasn’t the only winner on Tuesday, Ferrandino said. The large 37-28 majority taken by Democrats in the House was also a boon for Ferrandino’s party.

“We (Democrats) were in good position to take back the majority,” Ferrandino said. “We only needed one seat, and we hoped we’d get that and a little more. But we didn’t think every competitive seat would go our way.”

UPDATE: Rep. Mark Ferrandino elected Speaker; Rep. Dickey Lee Hullinghorst elected House Majority Leader, Rep. Dan Pabon as assistant majority leader.

At 10AM this morning, the newly-elected Colorado House Democratic Majority will join together for the first time to elect their caucus’ leadership. Rep. Mark Ferrandino is expected to become the state’s first openly gay Speaker of the Colorado House.

We’ll update with statements, other elected leadership once available.

  1. So, any results from the House GOP leadership elections? Who is Minority Leader? What is McNulty’s future in the House? What about Amy Stephens?

    1. Since the GOP is so fond of making State. Military and Veterans Affairs a “kill committee,” he should have to sit on the committee. Just to see how it should be run.
