DENVER – The Colorado Chamber of Commerce today released the following statement from Meghan Dollar, senior vice president of governmental affairs and political operations, following the results of the Republican and Democratic primary elections held on June 25:

“In the Colorado Chamber’s primary endorsement deliberations, we sought out candidates who made an early commitment to advancing Colorado’s economic competitiveness and the businesses in their districts. Colorado voters largely aligned with the interests of the statewide business community in supporting balanced, common-sense leadership in state legislative races. We congratulate all of the Chamber-backed candidates who won their respective primaries and look forward to strong partnerships to improve our business climate at the state legislature.”

Last month, the Colorado Chamber announced endorsements of 18 candidates running in Republican or Democratic primary elections for the state legislature. So far, 14 of those candidates have won their races and will move to the General Election in November with one race still too close to call.

The chosen candidates were selected for endorsement through extensive interviews and vetting by members of the Colorado Chamber’s Political Action Committee who represent businesses of all sizes across the state. In July, the Colorado Chamber’s political program will continue its work to elect pro-business candidates by making endorsements in the General Election.


The Colorado Chamber of Commerce champions free enterprise, a healthy business environment and economic prosperity for all Coloradans. It is the only business association that works to improve the business climate for all sizes of business from a statewide, multi-industry perspective. What the Colorado Chamber accomplishes is good for all businesses, and that’s good for the state’s economy. It was created in 1965 based on the merger with the Colorado Manufacturers’ Association.
