Jared Polis (D), U.S. representative for Colorado’s second congressional district since 2009, defeated Walker Stapleton (R) in the race for governor of Colorado in the Nov. 6 general election. Other Democrats took over statewide offices as well.
Polis has made history as the first openly gay person elected governor in the U.S. He ran on a progressive platform, viewing “healthcare as a human right” and campaigning on greater gun control, universal preschool and kindergarten, and repeal of the death penalty. He was also ahead of the state in supporting marijuana legalization.
With 100 percent of counties reporting, the secretary of state reports Polis has received an unofficial 998,203 total votes statewide to his opponent Walker Stapleton’s 869,882. Polis took Ouray County as well, with 1,827 votes to Stapleton’s 1,211.
