US Senate candidate Andrew Romanoff wears the ONE band

Former Colorado Speaker of the House Andrew Romanoff has been touring the state of Colorado this weekend building support for his race for the US Senate. I managed to catch up with him at a house party to talk with him about ONE. He was more than familiar with the organization and happily took a ONE band. While he was Speaker of the House the state legislature declared Colorado a State of ONE with strong bipartisan support and he even endorsed our campaign as a ONE Ambassador.

Romanoff told me that international development is one of the main reasons he got into politics. He saw poverty first-hand while teaching English in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and he recently took a trip to Nigeria. I thanked him for his work for the poor and told him to keep an eye out for ONE volunteers at events as we begin the ONE Vote 2010 Campaign.
