The Colorado Democratic Party is the branch of the Democratic Party in the United States, and Morgan Carroll is its president. The governing body of the party is the State Central Committee, which consists of the president and vice president of each county's Democratic Party in Colorado's 64 counties, plus additional members for larger counties. Every odd-numbered year, county parties elect their officials in February, followed by the state party, which elects its officers in March. At present, the Colorado Democratic Party is the dominant political force in the state.
It holds all state executive positions, including that of governor, as well as supermajorities in both houses of the legislature and most of the United States. The party is responsible for managing and overseeing coordinated campaigns at the state level and organizing the state convention in presidential years and the state assembly every two years. The state convention selects delegates to the Democratic National Convention and Colorado's presidential electors. State assemblies nominate candidates for state offices, congressmen, district attorneys, state and county legislatures, including governor, attorney general, Colorado treasurer, C. U.
Regent At-Large and United States senator. The party also adopts its platform at this time. Democrats currently hold all five state offices, a majority in the Colorado House of Representatives and a majority in the Colorado Senate. The Democratic Party also holds two seats in the United States Senate and five out of eight U. S.
House seats. Michael Bennet is a U. Senator from Colorado, while Jena Griswold serves as Secretary of State. The state has a Democratic trifecta and a Democratic triplex. The Democratic Party controls all positions of governor, secretary of state, attorney general and both houses of the legislature.
Tina Peters, former Mesa County Clerk who was running to be president of the Colorado Republican Party on Saturday, supported Williams after the second round of voting. She publicly announced from the plenary that she was reprimanded by Burton Brown for violating party statutes. The Colorado Democratic Party pledges to uphold high standards in all international relations by supporting equal rights for all people to freedom of expression, religion and pursuit of happiness. After six years at its helm, Morgan Carroll is retiring as president of the Colorado Democratic Party.
