DeGette keeps congressional seat

Posted

In the race for the 1st Congressional District seat, incumbent Diana DeGette won a 12th term on Nov. 6. The Democrat garnered 71 percent of the vote compared to Republican Casper Stockham's 26.4 percent, as of results posted Nov. 8. Libertarian Raymon Doane was pulling 2.6 percent.

DeGette, a Denver resident, was first elected to the U.S. House seat in 1996 after the incumbent, fellow Democrat Pat Schroeder, opted not to run for a 13th term.

Prior to joining Congress, DeGette served two terms in the Colorado House of Representatives, including a post as assistant minority leader.

CD1 encompasses Denver, Englewood, the Columbine and Ken Caryl areas, Glendale, Bow Mar, Cherry Hills Village, Sheridan and the Trailmark portion of Littleton.
