COLORADO – Voters across the state made their choice for major positions in Colorado’s government, including Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, and Treasurer. Two of Colorado’s Congressional districts are also up for grabs.

The headline here is the Democrats now control the majority of Colorado’s state government while Republican Congressmen Scott Tipton and Doug Lamborn won re-election bids.

At the same time, initiatives backed by Democrats seeking to fund education and transportation with tax funding failed.
