Colorado’s grassroots candidate for the Senate…
Meet Danielle and find out why she’s running to represent Colorado in the U.S. Senate. She is not a career politician or even a likely candidate: she’s proud to be a woman you wouldn’t expect.
The Senate is America’s foremost arena for political debate and Danielle is excited to champion issues like affordable health care, immigration, and climate change on your behalf.
Danielle is running this campaign the way she wants to serve in the Senate: constituents first. That’s why she’s available to schedule a phone call and is out meeting Coloradan’s in all 64 counties.
Danielle believes that access to affordable health care is a human right and has pledged to ensure all Coloradans have access to quality, affordable health care by the end of her first term… or she will not seek a second term.
She supports Medicare-for-All plans that provide coverage options to all Americans as well as these near-term health care priorities:
Re-stabilizing the Affordable Care Act and individual insurance market
Protecting Medicaid expansion and pursuing a national “sliding scale” Medicaid eligibility
Controlling the runaway costs of prescription drugs
As the spouse of an immigrant to the United States, Danielle is keenly aware of the benefits of immigration and the journey people go through to seek out a better life in America. She supports the passage of a comprehensive, clean DREAM Act to protect and support Dreamers.
Danielle also wants to prioritize these immigration reforms:
Ban deportation of non-citizen veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces
Streamline H1B (Skilled) Visa application process
Prohibit separation of families at border crossings and ports of entry
Recommit the United States to its role as a global leader in refugee protection
Danielle believes climate change is an existential threat and that the United States must dramatically expand its efforts to move to renewable energy sources and reduce carbon emissions. With that in mind, Danielle is committed to these policy objectives:
Rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement
Overhaul the U.S. energy grid and set an ambitious goal of movement to renewable energy sources
Increase fuel efficiency standards for carbon-emission vehicles
Subsidize vehicle charging station development
One of the reasons Danielle felt the urgency to run for office was the continued dysfunction of Washington D.C., she believes we cannot keep sending career politicians to the U.S. Senate and expect them to vote against their own political careers. That’s why she is determined to be a grassroots candidate and a Senator for the people of Colorado. As the mother of four boys, Danielle has a lot of experience managing egos and chaos - and she’s ready to take that insight to the Capitol.
Danielle is committed to avoiding government shutdowns and is anxious to lead in the Senate on these goals:
Reverse Citizens United and pass comprehensive campaign finance reform
Prohibit requiring Federal employees to work without pay
Introduce term limits for the U.S. Supreme Court
