Morgan Carroll Elected Colorado Democratic Party Chair

  • 10 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

UPDATE: The Colorado Independent’s Marianne Goodland:

Carroll easily dispatched her rival for the spot, Clear Creek County Commissioner Tim Mauck, by a vote of 401 to 38.

Carroll’s victory is seen by some as a strong step toward unifying a party split in two by last year’s presidential primary. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders took the caucuses, winning the ongoing loyalty of Democrats who continue to fight for more progressive agenda.

“There’s very much a split in the party, but [Carroll] has the ability to bring people back together,” said Greeley City Councilwoman Rochelle Galindo, who was among several who nominated Carroll for party chair.

Carroll, who ran unsuccessfully against incumbent Republican Rep. Mike Coffman, told The Colorado Independent before the voting that Saturday’s election “is critical, more important than anything we’ve seen at the state and national level.

“Both political parties are at a turning point,” she said, “where we need to recreate, reinvent, strengthen, think outside the box, so that we can do a better job of connecting with voters and get people elected to fight for the things we believe in.”

—–

Morgan Carroll.

That’s the word from the Colorado Democratic Party’s reorganization meeting today. Peter Marcus of the Colorado Springs Gazette reports:

“The Democratic Party should be on the front line of the resistance,” Carroll told a cheering audience. “We must adapt, or face extinction.”

…Carroll defeated Clear Creek County Commissioner Tim Mauck, who had counted on rural Democrats.

Carroll garnered 401 votes to Mauck’s 38.

We’ll update with statements and more coverage.

  1. remind her of a place called Colorado Springs. If you even get us to 50-50 here, you convert the state for a generation. 

    Oh, and yes, I’m available at a pretty good price.

     

    1. Morgan was at the Peak Dems Gala last Saturday night, and she spoke of how important El Paso County is to carrying the state. Dems are outnumbered here, but she is quite aware we are a large county with a large number of Dems. She has been in El Paso County a number of times in the past supporting our local party and local candidates.

      1. Cynical hypocrites like ACHole don't have much use for people like Andrew Romanoff who help make the world a better place.

        ACHole supports the dregs in control of the GOP and Donald Trump because, you know, scumbags have to stick together.

      1. V – did you forget something?  She. Is. A. W.O.M.A.N.  How are we ever going to make America great again if we keep givin' these women-folk real positions of power and leadership?  Next thing you know one of 'em will get the idea to run fur President and she'll win the popular vote by 3 million.  

        Oh, wait.  

  2. The more intriguing questions are: (a) who will be the new Steve House, and (b) when will Tom Tancredo and Cynthia Coffman be paying their courtesy call on him?
