Support

We recently learned that President Barack Obama has endorsed Rachel Zenzinger in her campaign for election to the Colorado Senate.

We are honored to have this support from President Obama.

If you would like to join President Obama in supporting this campaign, please let us know, and we will your name to the list below. Thank you to all the people who have already allowed us to include their names here.

Rachel has a record of reaching across the aisle and getting results for Senate District 19. From working to lower housing and tuition costs, to fighting for equal pay and our small businesses, Rachel has fought for families across the district and across Colorado. We need to reelect her to the State Senate so we can regain our majority and keep moving Colorado forward.

U.S. Senator Michael Bennet

I’m proud to support Rachel Zenzinger for the State Senate. Rachel is going to fight for the people of Senate District 19, and the outcome of this election is critical to the future of our state.

U.S. Congressman Ed Perlmutter

Rachel Zenzinger cares about quality jobs, and making sure we are fair and smart in how we create them. She is an energetic leader with a strong commitment to public service. We need her back in the Colorado State Senate. Let’s get to work!

Gov. John Hickenlooper

This is the news we’ve been waiting for, that Rachel Zenzinger would run for this important seat in the legislature. We know of her dedication and her many community contributions.

Lucia Guzman, Colorado Senate Minority Leader

Rachel represents and fights for what our community truly cares about and needs – public safety, quality education and a growing economy that works for all of us. These goals will not be achieved without the right people leading us at the State Capitol. This is why we need Rachel Zenzinger in the Colorado Senate to fight for our values now more than ever before.

Westminster City Councilwoman Shannon Bird

I have worked with Rachel Zenzinger for many years, in many capacities, and I have always known her to bring a huge amount of enthusiasm and positive energy to every project. She is the kind of person who gets things done, who makes people around her feel good about the process and the outcome, and she has my vote for the Colorado Senate.

Arvada City Councilman Mark McGoff

Rachel Zenzinger’s strong commitment to our community and her passion for quality education is unparalleled. She’s a leader with a proven track record of advocating for great schools for all children in Jeffco and across Colorado. She is the best choice for the State Senate in District 19. I hope you will vote for her.

Former Jeffco School Board member Lesley Dahlkemper

Rachel Zenzinger is the woman for the job in the Colorado Senate. She is energetic and intelligent, she has deep experience in the field of education, and she will do what it takes to create a positive environment for our public schools. We need to remain vigilant against the politicians who would erode the work we have done on behalf of our students over the years, and Rachel will help maintain that vigilance.

Former Jeffco School Board Member Jill Fellman

Rachel Zenzinger is the best candidate to represent Arvada and Westminster in the Colorado Senate. We know she will fight for women and families in her district by continuing to stand up for women’s reproductive rights, gender equality, and health care for all.

EMILY’s List Vice President of Campaigns Lucinda Guinn

I am supporting Rachel Zenzinger because she is a proven leader who was an effective champion for Westminster and Arvada during her time as our State Senator.  Rachel’s qualifications, intelligence, and integrity will represent us well. I urge you to vote for Rachel in the Senate District 19 election. All of Colorado will benefit from her leadership.

Anita Seitz, Westminster City Councilmember

I strongly support Rachel Zenzinger for State Senate District 19.  I believe Rachel is a proven leader and will champion the values and goals I believe in to make Colorado the best place it can be.  She is, without a doubt, the best candidate to represent Arvada and Westminster in the Senate.
