I was surprised and disappointed to learn that a candidate for mayor of Denver would be unaware and out of step with the history and concerns of communities of color. Now is the time for unity, not division.

I can’t stop thinking about the fact that this woman is now a federal judge. For life. We should all be outraged. We must all speak out. There needs to be a moral floor for these lifetime appointments to our federal judiciary. Senators, I urge you to establish one quickly.
