What people are saying

Ed Perlmutter fights for what we value. In Jeffco, he stood side by side with parents and community members to keep our public schools public and out of the hands of the Koch brothers. In Washington, he works with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle to find common ground and fresh approaches to solve complex problems. He’s also a tireless champion for equal rights. His leadership gets results that benefit us all.

I’m endorsing Ed Perlmutter because he’s a streetfighter. When we were working on comprehensive immigration reform here in the state of Colorado, when we were working to turn that tide, there were some Democrats who were trying to hide in the shadows – but not Ed. Ed came straight forward with us, stood side by side with us to make sure we reverse the voice of anti-immigration sentiment here in the state of Colorado.

State Rep. Joe Salazar (D-Thornton)

He is the kind of man who’s always going to pick up the phone, who’s always going to help out. Congressman Perlmutter has always been willing to advocate for us.

Emma Pinter, Westminster City Councilmember

As a friend, as a Congressman, even as a state legislator at one point, Ed Perlmutter has been there for not only the veterans but the disabled veterans. As he serves in Congress, he is a godsend to all of us veterans. His accomplishment in getting the new VA Medical Facility built is a godsend as well.

Artie Guerrero, local Vietnam veteran

There really is no one, day in and day out, who works harder for the people of Colorado than Ed Perlmutter. It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve with him.

Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO)
