The Colorado Women’s Alliance has evaluated the candidates and has offered its endorsement of the 2012 Colorado State Senate and House candidates in Colorado. Debbie Brown, director of the Colorado Women’s Alliance had this to say about the endorsements:
“Our research confirms that women’s issues are much broader than you’d guess from watching over-the-top political ads designed to scare and distract. Joblessness, home foreclosures, rising education bills and a stagnant economy all affect the lives of women in a very personal way. Legislators must enact policies that protect and respect a woman’s personal financial security and independence.”
The criteria for the endorsements was that the candidate had to commit to putting job creation first, to commit to reducing the burden of business regulation, and to be running in a targeted race. The endorsements focused on Jefferson and Arapahoe Counties, two of the most contested counties in Colorado in local and presidential elections.
