Jason Crow, a decorated Army Ranger, father, veterans’ advocate and candidate for Congress in Colorado’s 6th Congressional District received endorsements from former U.S. Senator and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and State Senator Irene Aguilar.
“I am extremely honored to have the endorsements of Secretary Ken Salazar and State Senator Irene Aguilar. Secretary Salazar has been a trailblazer, fighting for Colorado his entire career. He has worked hard for years on immigration reform, expansion of public lands and renewable energy, and civil rights and his commitment to Colorado and bipartisanship is inspiring. I am humbled to have his support. Senator Aguilar has been a long-time friend and progressive leader for Colorado. Her dedication to bringing healthcare to every Coloradan and her commitment to progressive values shows true leadership. From day one, this campaign has been about focusing on what unites us, not what divides us and I am incredibly humbled to have these two leaders in my corner.”
Secretary Salazar said of Crow, “Jason has served our nation with distinction in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is a stellar community leader and father, and loves Colorado. He has proven his ability to unify the community through positive leadership and build coalitions to get things done — from his work with other veteran leaders in the fight for the VA Hospital in Aurora, to helping build organizations to address the growing substance abuse crisis in our community. In Congress, Jason will find solutions that help the people of the 6th Congressional District and end the gridlock in Washington. I enthusiastically endorse him.”
State Senator Aguilar also released the following statement, “I first came to know Jason as a community leader and was extremely excited to learn of his candidacy. I have always admired Jason’s military career but what I have come to appreciate most is his good heart and the kindness he was able to maintain through his three combat tours. Jason is a strong progressive with courage of conviction and a dedication to public service. He cares deeply for his family and community and I know that the 6th District and Colorado will benefit greatly with him as a representative.”
Crow has also received endorsements from Senator Mark Udall, Governor Bill Ritter, State Representative Karen Middleton, VoteVets, New Politics, former Colorado Political Director for Bernie Sanders for President JoyAnn Ruscha, Congressman Seth Moulton and County Commissioners Eva Henry, Bill Holen, Steve O’Dorisio, and Chaz Tedesco.
