Hails Jared as “an indispensable leader for Colorado”
Former President Barack Obama today announced that he has endorsed Jared Polis to be Colorado’s next governor, and Dianne Primavera to be Colorado’s next lieutenant governor.
“I’m proud to endorse Jared Polis to be the next governor of Colorado,” President Obama said. “Jared has always been an indispensable leader for Colorado, and we became friends and partners in the fight to expand affordable healthcare, ensure a better education for all our children, and protect our wild spaces and our planet from climate change. I ask Coloradans to join me in supporting Jared Polis for governor, and I am confident he will be an effective champion for Colorado families.”
“It is a true honor to earn the endorsement of President Barack Obama, a courageous leader and statesman who Coloradans and Americans continue to be proud of,” Jared Polis said. “I was proud to work alongside President Obama to expand health care to millions of Coloradans, strengthen and empower our public schools, and protect the public lands that power our economy. All of that hard-fought progress is on the line in this election. By working together, we can build on that progress here in Colorado and build an economy where every family has the opportunity to get ahead.”
