House Speaker Crisanta Duran on Monday endorsed fellow Denver Democrat Robert Rodriguez in the five-way primary for term-limited state Sen. Irene Aguilar’s Senate District 32 seat.

“For over 10 years, I’ve known Robert as a tireless volunteer for progressive causes, always putting the needs of others above his own,” Duran said in a statement. “Now more than ever, we need leaders who can unite us under the banner of a Democratic Party that stands for women, people of color, the young, and the working-class. For Senate District 32, Robert is that candidate.”
