In 2006, Ed was elected to represent the 7th Congressional District in Congress and quickly earned a reputation as someone who gets things done for Colorado.
Ed’s work in Congress includes protecting and creating good-paying jobs in Colorado including fighting for funding for the National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden and protecting thousands of jobs as part of the Orion manned space flight program. Ed has also been a bulldog when it comes to ensuring the new VA Medical Center is completed to serve Veterans across the Rocky Mountain region. With his bipartisan approach and effective leadership, Ed was re-elected five times in one of the most competitive congressional districts in the United States.
As Governor, Ed will bring his pragmatic, results oriented drive to all Coloradans.
