PRESS RELEASE – Early Endorsements Separate Dr. Yadira Caraveo from the Field (6/12/18)
Thornton, CO, June 12, 2018 -- Prior to the summer transition towards the 2018 general elections, several local leaders and organizations announced their support of Dr. Yadira Caraveo’s campaign for State House District #31, distinguishing her from the field as a progressive leader who will fight for working families across Colorado. Although she does not have a primary opponent, the swift endorsements reflect the enthusiasm surrounding Dr. Caraveo, a pediatrician and labor advocate who is a rising star in Adams County.
Dr. Caraveo released the following statement regarding the endorsements: “The support I’ve received from so many in the Democratic party, from organized labor and progressive groups early on in this campaign, has been humbling. During over 8 years as a pediatrician, I’ve seen the struggles of working families to pay the bills, put food on the table, work multiple jobs, and try to juggle the demands of raising children. Every one of the groups or individuals I’ve met with, from Congressman Perlmutter at the start to AFL CIO most recently, has understood that my experience as a pediatrician comes with a vision to protect the children and families I care for every day. I look forward to working with all of these groups as the next representative from House District 31.”
Endorsing leaders and organizations include:
- Congressman Ed Perlmutter
Rep. Joe Salazar
Pipefitters Local 208
Colorado Working Families Party
The campaign will work with these organizations in order to reach more voters across the district and advance progressive causes in the state legislature.
