Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis hit the road Tuesday to talk about health care on the Western Slope. His running mate, former state Rep. Dianne Primavera, is joining him.
During the Democratic Primary, Polis committed to universal health care. Though popular with Democrats, Amendment 69, called ColoradoCare, was drubbed on the ballot in 2016.
Colorado Politics was the first to report Monday that Primavera was Polis’ pick for his lieutenant governor. Primavera is the CEO of Susan G. Komen Colorado.
A press release from Polis’ campaign further described her as “a four-time cancer survivor
and respected leader in the fight for affordable health care.”
