Sen. Tony Exum (D-CO Springs) and Rep. Regina English (D-CO Springs) moderated a panel discussion on the importance of Black history and offered constituents a legislative update during a town hall event at the Chinook Center in Colorado Springs on Saturday.
Democrats in Colorado won big last night, winning all the statewide races, potentially taking six of the eight U.S. House of Representative seats and winning the U.S. Senate race. Nowhere in Colorado is the Democratic victory more evident than in El Paso County, where, based on early unofficial results, Democrat Stephanie Vigil is poised to flip a house seat in a race against Colorado Springs City Councilor Dave Donelson, where Vigil leads by 737 votes.
Races for Colorado Senate, where Democrats currently have a narrow, five-seat majority, are ones to watch this year. Colorado Springs’s newly created Senate District 11 will see established politicians Rep. Tony Exum (D-CO Springs) and Colorado Springs District 4 City Councilor Yolanda Avila in a primary contest to compete against Sen. Dennis Hisey (R-Fountain).
