Federal Candidate Information

Candidates are not listed in any particular order. The Weld County Democratic Party does not make endorsements of candidates in contested primary elections.

Lorena Garcia

United States Senate for Colorado


Lorena Garcia has been leading social justice advocacy organizations for the last fifteen years, fighting for equity, dignity, and justice in her communities. She has crafted legislation that ensured paid family leave, protected pregnant inmates, and guaranteed comprehensive sex education in schools. While running her campaign, Lorena works full-time at the Colorado Statewide Parent Coalition, which partners with childcare providers to close the educational achievement gap. Lorena was galvanized to run for Senate by Trump and Gardner’s systematic attacks on LGBTQ rights, abortion access, immigrant protections. In her own words, “I’m in this fight because I can’t afford not to be.”

Andrew Romanoff

United States Senate for Colorado


Andrew won four terms in the Colorado House of Representatives—including two terms as speaker of the House—and led the Democrats to their first majority in 30 years. He earned recognition from more than 50 state and national organizations as one of the most effective legislative leaders in America.

Andrew authored laws to protect the environment, expand the supply of affordable housing, and support the victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. He crafted an economic recovery plan to put thousands of Coloradans back to work, built a bipartisan coalition to pass it, and secured the largest investment in school construction in state history.

Andrew began his career at the Southern Poverty Law Center, joining the battle against Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazi groups. His work there fueled a lifelong passion for justice—a cause he later championed at a state civil rights agency.

The same commitment took Andrew to Nicaragua in the wake of a brutal civil war. He taught English in rural high schools and continued teaching here in Colorado.

In 2012, Andrew founded the Posner Center for International Development—the first such initiative in the country. The Posner Center is now home to more than 60 Colorado-based organizations, all advancing sustainable solutions to global poverty.

James McGannon PDF

I have been a Colorado resident since 1981 and now reside in Douglas County. I have career long experience in municipal government work and as a consultant. My career as an urban forester and a traditional forester, originally brought me to Colorado Springs in 1981. I was employed with the City of Colorado Springs (Forestry Division) from 1981 until 2008. After leaving Colorado Springs and El Paso County in 2010, I settled in Jefferson County near Golden. Our next and final move was to Douglas County.

[… Full Letter …]

After a few years, I came to Colorado Springs and interviewed for a nationally posted job with the City of Colorado Springs. I was in Colorado Springs Forestry Division the rest of my municipal career, eventually in charge of the Forestry Division as City Forester. I have also been a consultant in my field up to this day. I am currently serving on the Board of the Pinery Water and Wastewater District. In addition, I have been involved with my community’s homeowner associations. I volunteer with many organizations and even donate blood!

Holly A. Herson

Colorado State House District 48


I have always called rural Weld County home, so after leaving Frederick where I grew up and moving to Loveland I attended The University of Northern Colorado. I decided to continue my career in healthcare rather than completing my first college degree to avoid accumulating debt.

My father died by suicide in 2009, and I made the decision to double down and get involved in my community. I became involved in suicide prevention and awareness organizations and became very involved with local politics. I went back to college for two degrees in political science where I was able to work for a Colorado State Senator specifically on healthcare policy during the 2017 Legislative Session.

I worked for an organization where I was able to perform hundreds of eye exams for homeless, and disadvantaged children and enrol them in Medicaid. I have helped to organize fundraisers, and to campaign for a successful mental health initiative in Larimer County impacting all of Northern Colorado. I currently work for a private practice in Northern Colorado, and have since 2009.
My wife and I became foster parents before starting our own family. We have one son, Liam who was born in 2019, and are very close with our foster son who is now 21.

We purchased our home in Milliken in 2018, and are in love with our community and with rural Weld County. More about me is available on Ballotpedia (https://ballotpedia.org/Holly_Herson).

Gen Schneider

Colorado House of Representatives District 63


My name is Gen Schneider and I am running for House District 63. I grew up in rural farming communities where small businesses and civil service were a way of life. My parents were small business owners and leaders in our rural town, and having these role models gave me a deep sense of responsibility to my community.

I have been involved with local politics since 2012, and I have worked hard for positive change in Dacono, Colorado. My family and I feel that the time has come to seek public office at a higher level. I want to bring more integrity, opportunity, and prosperity to our area by running for House District 63.

During my time in local politics, I learned how to work with many different people, all with diverse backgrounds and opinions. I also learned how to keep my resolve, even when it is unpopular to do so. I know that if I am elected to the Colorado House I can use these skills to help our families create a better life.

My top 3 issues are protecting reproductive rights, regulating oil and gas, and ensuring that our schools are properly funded.

State Representative Mary Young

Colorado House of Representatives District 50


Hello my name is Mary Young, and I am honored to be the State Representative of House District 50. These are very chaotic times we are living in and it is difficult for me to talk about myself in these circumstance s, but I realize that you need to have an understanding of who I am and the values I hold.  I see myself as a life-long public servant, not as a politician. 

I am a life- long educator who has worked in public schools, primarily working with students with special needs, developmental disabilities and mental health issues.  I have been passionate about focusing on these issues while here in the State House. This work is ongoing and there are no simple fixes, but I am committed to finding real solutions for Coloradans. My commitment to these   issues isn’t just professional. My husband, Dave Young and I became co-guardians of my sister-in-law when she needed a liver transplant.  She faces medical, problem solving and mental health challenges.  The path we share with her has been a blessing and pushed our problem-solving abilities to the limits.  We are blessed to have her in our lives.

I strive to fight for well-funded quality education with well-paid educators, affordable housing, accessible healthcare, employment with living wages, and a healthy environment for the people in my district and the state.  As someone who believes in the inclusion of all no matter their gender, race, ethnicity, disability, age or whom they love; I believe that all Coloradoans should be able to have their needs met.  We will all work together to achieve a better tomorrow.
