“We need to make sure that we’ve got an economy that when it grows, grows for everybody.”
DENVER, CO — In case you missed it, yesterday, Michael, his wife Susan, and youngest daughter Anne dropped off their ballots together. This was the first election that Anne was old enough to vote.
After dropping his ballot in the drop box, Michael gave his closing campaign message to Colorado voters:
“There’s a lot at stake in this country right now. Our democracy is extremely fragile because we’ve had an economy that for forty years has worked really well for the top 10% of Americans and hasn’t worked for anybody else…we need to make sure that we’ve got an economy that when it grows, it grows for everybody, so that people have a sense that they’ve got real opportunity, and that they can move their country [and] their families forward. If we lose that sense, that’s when the democracy becomes really fragile, and somebody shows up and says, ‘I alone can fix it. You don’t need a democracy anymore.’ I, obviously, profoundly disagree with that,” Michael said in his remarks. “ I’m very optimistic about where this country is headed, if we can get our political system working, and I think we’ll be able to do that.”

Michael and his campaign aren’t slowing down in the final days ahead of the election. Michael is sprinting through the finish line to engage with Coloradans and earn their support. Last week, Michael traveled over 700 miles to Salida, Pagosa Springs, Durango, Alamosa, Walsenburg, Pueblo, and Colorado Springs to meet with Coloradans and get out the vote. The Colorado Democratic Coordinated Campaign operates 15 field offices around the state, and more than 2,500 volunteers have completed over 700,000 calls, door knocks, and texts to Colorado voters.
