PLANNED PARENTHOOD VOTES COLORADO CONGRATULATES
WINNERS IN MIDTERM ELECTIONS

DENVER, CO – Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC) congratulates endorsed candidates who won their races in the 2018 midterm elections.

PPVC extends their congratulates to five winners for the Colorado state Senate: Jessie Danielson for SD 20, Kerry Donovan for SD 5, Brittany Pettersen for SD 22, Tammy Story for SD 16, and Faith Winter for SD 24. These five powerful women will be true champions for women’s reproductive health and rights under the gold dome. In addition, PPVC congratulates reproductive rights champions who won their races across the state.

“We know these exceptional candidates will stand up for women and families across our state,” said Sarah Taylor-Nanista, Executive Director of PPVC. “PPVC endorses and works to elect candidates who trust women to make their own health care decisions, including decisions about abortion, and these candidates exemplify those values. We’re thrilled to see champions of reproductive rights and health care representing communities across the state.”
