Colorado Democrats are conducting a mail-ballot vote this month to decide whether to conclude an unfinished election for a statewide vice chair position by awarding posts to the top three finalists. The post of 2nd vice chair has gone unfilled since last month’s party reorganization meeting when none of the candidates won a majority of the vote after multiple rounds of balloting.

Three months after Democrats were stunned by the results of the presidential election — and just three weeks into the Trump administration — the party’s Denver County central committee turned out in record numbers for its biennial reorganization meeting.

Three of the four candidates for chair of the Colorado Democratic Party sounded the alarm and raised the roof campaigning for the post at Denver County’s reorganization meeting on Saturday. Former Senate President Morgan Carroll, Colorado Democratic Party 2nd vice chair Barbara Jones and Clear Creek County Commissioner Tim Mauck made their pitches to the hundreds of Denver Democrats assembled at South High School, invoking Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and rural Democrats who want practical solutions to real-world problems.
