Race to Watch: Colorado

Voters all over the United States will make their voices heard at the ballot box on November 6. The battle for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate come down to just a few competitive races, so it’s more important than ever for cannabis professionals to be informed about the views of key candidates running for office. NCIA has compiled information about candidates running in 25 competitive races for the House of Representatives and three for the Senate that we consider uniquely important to the cannabis industry due to their views on marijuana policy and/or their geographic location.

House Races

District

6

According to SwingLeft.org, in the last election, Republican Mike Coffman won this district by only 31,254 votes (8.3%). But Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in CO-06 by 8.9%. Now Democrat Jason Crow, a former Army Ranger and tireless advocate for veterans is running to take Coffman's seat. Coffman has voted to protect CBD, medical and adult-use cannabis programs, veterans access, hemp, and banks that choose to service the cannabis industry. Crow's campaign website states, "In Congress, I will fight for justice and equal treatment for all by promoting criminal justice policies to improve law enforcement, reduce incarceration, decriminalize marijuana, and strengthen communities."
