Polis, Bennet keep their seats
CALL it status quo for Colorado.
Gov. Jared Polis, State Attorney General Phil Weiser, and Secretary of State Jena Griswold all won their high profile re-election races Tuesday.
U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet also won, earning a third full term in office by defeating challenger Joe O’Dea. Bennet was appointed to the U.S. Senate in 2009 and won his first full term in 2010.
In state propositions:
Colorado adopted Proposition 121, which will reduce the state income tax rate to 4.40 percent from 4.55 percent.
Proposition FF, which supported healthy meals in public schools, also gained voter approval.
Coloradans weren’t as supportive of the various propositions dealing with alcohol and liquor licenses:
Proposition 124 on the number of retail liquor store licenses a person could hold was soundly defeated, while Proposition 125 calling for an expansion of retail alcohol sales to allow grocery stores to sell wine was losing, and Proposition 126 which would allow for third-party delivery of liquor was also losing.
