Denver – The American Federation of Teachers Colorado today announced their organization’s endorsement of Karen McCormick, DVM in her campaign to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District.

“Karen McCormick will be a champion for Colorado students, for Colorado teachers, and for the communities they serve. We are proud to endorse her and urge our local members to support her,” AFT Colorado President Sarah Mesmer said. “At a time when educators are increasingly speaking up at the state level, we need someone like Karen McCormick who will make our voices heard in Congress. “

“Every child in Colorado deserves the opportunity to have a quality education. Every teacher in Colorado deserves the support they need to help kids succeed,” said McCormick. “Having the endorsement of AFT Colorado means I can help make that happen by winning in November. Our state and our nation need to go forwards, not backwards, on public education.”
