Democrat Jared Polis said he was overwhelmed by the support shown when he was re-elected to his fifth term in the 2nd Congressional District last week.
Polis retained his seat in Congress, besting both Republican Nic Morse and Libertarian Richard Longstreth. Polis captured 56.7 percent of the vote. Morse took 37.7 percent, and Longstreth took 5.6 percent.
The district includes Clear Creek, Jefferson, Grand, Summit, Boulder and Larimer counties, as well as a significant portion of the Front Range.
