John Hickenlooper Will Put Coloradans’ Health Care First

Denver, CO — Following John Hickenlooper’s win in Colorado’s race for U.S. Senate, Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach issued the following statement: 

“This race was run and won on health care. Senator-elect John Hickenlooper is a health care champion and comes to Washington with a clear mandate to pass a COVID relief package and build on the Affordable Care Act to lower costs, increase coverage and stand up to insurance and drug companies. Colorado rejected the Republican war on health care and voted for moving forward on an aggressive health care agenda in the new Congress. 

“Voters rejected Cory Gardner because of his disastrous position on health care. From supporting the repeal of the Affordable Care Act to lying about protections for pre-existing conditions, Cory Gardner was a reliable vote in favor of Donald Trump’s war on health care. Instead, voters chose John Hickenlooper, who made health care a centerpiece of his campaign and will prioritize the health of Coloradans by maintaining protections Americans count on to get health care coverage. Voters in Colorado chose John Hickenlooper to reverse the years-long health care sabotage inflicted upon Americans by Donald Trump and make health care more accessible and affordable for everyone.”
