Andrew Romanoff announced Tuesday that his U.S. Senate campaign has won endorsements from more than 250 current and former elected officials, including a former congressman and dozens of state lawmakers. 

“This is what a grassroots campaign looks like. Thousands of Coloradans are joining our call to repair our democracy and restore the American dream,” said Romanoff, a former speaker of the Colorado Home of Representatives and a past president and CEO of Mental Health Colorado, in a statement.

Romanoff is one of a dozen Democrats running for the chance to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner in the 2020 election.

Former U.S. Rep. John Salazar praised Romanoff’s leadership abilities and called the candidate “a common-sense problem solver [who] knows how to deliver results.”

“He’s always stood up for Colorado’s farmers, and he knows how important agriculture is to our state’s economy,” added Salazar, who served four years as Colorado’s commissioner of agriculture after losing his seat in Congress, in a statement.

“I’ve seen firsthand Andrew’s success expanding economic opportunity in Colorado’s agriculture sector and his fierce commitment to the people of Colorado. It’s clear that Andrew is the best candidate to take on Cory Gardner.”

Polly Baca, a former vice chair of the Democratic National Committee and the first Latina to serve in the Colorado Senate, said she’s supporting Romanoff “because he cares about our diverse communities, understands the legislative process, and has the experience and commitment to fight for what we need in the U.S. Senate.”

Below is the list of endorsers released by the Romanoff campaign:
