June 7, 2018 —Today, former CU Regent Joe Neguse announced he has earned the endorsement of Former Vice President Joe Biden. Neguse is running to succeed Congressman Jared Polis in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Joe Neguse is the embodiment of the American Dream and I couldn’t be prouder to endorse his campaign for Congress. We need to send him to Washington to fight for working-class families and to protect the ideals that this nation was founded on,” said Vice President Biden.
If elected, Neguse, 34, would become the first African-American ever elected to Congress from the State of Colorado, and would be one of the youngest members of Congress. Neguse, whose parents immigrated from Eritrea, is an attorney who previously served as a member of the University of Colorado Board of Regents, representing the 2nd Congressional District for six years from 2009 through 2015. He also co-founded New Era Colorado, the state’s largest youth voter registration and mobilization organization.
“Joe Biden is an American icon with a tremendous record of service to this country. Having his support is an incredible honor,” said Neguse
